I remember as a little girl my Aunt Virgie used to take me to work with her to the law enforcement offices and I used to love to listen to the speakers with the detectives talking and dispatcher who would send law enforcement to different crimes. She really loved her job back then and it was so fun spending time with her. She is now with the angels and all of her family. My condolences go out to my cousins Al, Michelle, Marta & Freddie. Love you guys.. sorry I cannot be in town for the services. Sending my love and prayers to you all.. XO

Aunt Virgie was like a second Mother to me. She was filled with love and compassion for her children and ones she loved. She raised (4) children all on her own. She made sure they were all taken care of and well educated. She was a tough cookie and did not take any guff. She had a huge Hope chest that Marta and I used to get into filled with her dance costumes. Virgie was a great dancer and beautiful woman. We had fun putting on shows in her living room on 33rd Ave. Portland. She helped form my life! Thank you Aunt for your understanding of love and showing it to all of us! I will never forget it! Love you dearly!

My deepest sympathies on the passing of dear Virginia. May the God of all comfort strengthen the entire family during this time of sorrow. Always remember that God keeps in his memory those whom we lose because they are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15)
