Virginia Mae Garmon Burres, 89, of Leitchfield, passed away Friday, March 16, 2018, at her home.

She was born on Oct. 7, 1928, in Marrowbone, Ky., in Cumberland County. She was the daughter of the late Norris and Opal Huddleston Garmon.

She was an avid UK basketball fan, and enjoyed watching all sports, including tennis and baseball. She loved to read, loved her Bible, and especially loved her two daughters. She loved her grand-dogs, and she enjoyed playing bingo earlier in her life. She was a good person, was very forgiving and was a voice for those less fortunate or in need of help. She began working for the Kentucky Department for Human Resources in 1954 as a social worker, and retired in 1988. In 1947 she graduated from Martha Norris Memorial High School, and graduated from Western Kentucky University (Western State College at the time) in 1952. She was a member of Clearview Baptist Church.

She is survived by her daughters, Lee Ann Glenn (Bart) and Beth Alvey (Brent), all of Leitchfield; grandchildren Christopher Alvey of Dallas, Texas, Ashley Wise (Derrick) of Versailles, Bobby Glenn of Denver, Colo., and Cody Glenn (Natalie) of Mayfield; and great-grandchildren Piper James Wise and Evie Mae Wise.

Other than her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Richard (Dick) and Bettye Watkins.

The funeral is noon Tuesday, March 20, at the Dermitt Funeral Home in Leitchfield, with Brother Chester Shartzer officiating. Burial is in Fairview Cemetery.

Visitation is from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday and from 9 a.m. until time of services Tuesday at the funeral home.
