Virginia M. Kushner Obituary
Kushner, Virginia M
Dec 23, 1921 - Jan 6, 2018
Virginia M. Kushner (Ftorek) passed away peacefully on January 6, 2018. She had turned 96 years old on December 23rd. She was preceded in death by her husband Paul A. Kushner, her parents Anton and Mary Ftorek and her sister Margaret McCarver.
She is survived by her son Paul A. Kushner, Jr. (of Indianapolis, IN) and daughter Denise M. Bell (of Sarasota, FL) in addition to step-children Karen Annette Johnston and Donna Marie Turman. A third step-child, Lee A. Kushner passed away in 1975. Virginia also had several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Virginia was born on December 23, 1921, in Cleveland, OH and grew up in Parma, OH. On December 1, 1945, she married her husband Paul; they remained together for 61 years until he passed on December 29, 2006.
Virginia had several passions in life (in addition to her love of family and friends), especially music. After moving from Ohio to Kentucky in 1961 she and her husband Paul often traveled to Nashville, TN where they would attend the Grand Ole Opry. In their later years they also enjoyed taking trips with friends.
Anyone who was fortunate enough to have known Virginia knows just how much she will be missed. She was a giver in the true sense and put others first.
Should you wish to make a contribution in her behalf, her children ask that it be made to the Tidewell Hospice, 5595 Rand Blvd., Sarasota, FL 34238 or the Oleika Shrine Temple, 326 Southland Dr., Lexington, KY 40503.
