Virginia Lee Hearn Obituary
On December 25, 2010, God whispered in her ear and took her gently from her home in San Pedro to her eternal home in Heaven. Virginia was born on July 23, 1919 in Clay City, Indiana to Walter and Myrtle Payne. She married Charles Hearn and they shared sixty years of life together. He preceded her in death in 1993. During World War II, Virginia worked for Republic Air in Evansville, IN, building the P-47 fighter. She and Charles moved to San Pedro in 1945 where eventually she worked and retired from Honeywell in Gardena. Though Virginia loved living in California, she was fond of her home state of Indiana and was proud when Clay City was named "The Mayberry of the Midwest". Like the residents of that mythical town, Virginia kept the great traditions of church, country, family and being a good neighbor. She was a member of Temple Heights Baptist Church, supported various charities, loved animals and never missed an election. Virginia was known for her great love of family, she and Charles had two daughters, Vera Eisenberg of San Pedro and Patti Hearn of Sylmar. She is loved and remembered by her grandsons, John Nantroup, and wife, Sherry of Simi Valley, CA and their two daughters, Jennifer Nodes and Jessica Nantroup; Charles Nantroup and wife, Vivian of Rancho Cucamonga, CA and their children, Christopher, Gregory, Joshua, Natalie Ensor and granddaughter, Elsie; her granddaughters, Mary Alotta and husband, Joe of Carson City, NV and their children, Aubrey, Tony, Amy Hinojosa; sons, Paul and Michael; Emily Mendez and daughters, Angelina, Mary Jane and Lillian; Vincent and daughter, Emma; Laura Butler and husband, James of Lake View Terrace, CA; nieces and nephews in Indiana; and niece, Troveda Bohringer of La Mesa, CA.
