Virginia Mary Hooper, 89, of Taneytown, died Monday, Sept. 16, 2013.

Born Jan. 15, 1924, in Wisconsin, she was the daughter of the late Clarence and Prudence Hathaway Lentz. She was the wife of the late Christian V. Nehls, whom she married in 1942; and of the late Riley E. Hooper Jr., whom she married in 1968.

She grew up living the farm life. She and her first husband moved their family to Maryland in 1955, settled on a farm in Woodsboro and raised their children. After marrying her second husband in 1968, they moved to Johnsville. When her second husband died in 2009, she moved in with her daughter, Sharon Unger and husband Jim.

She enjoyed playing cards with her children and grandchildren, and being with family and friends, enjoying the laughter and conversation around her.
