Virginia Lu Obituary
February 23, 1928 - July 7, 2015 Virginia Lu, devoted wife of Frank Lu, passed away on July 7, 2015. Virginia was born in Kaiping, Guangdong, China. Her father passed away prior to her birth. Virginia was raised by her uncle and grew up with her eight cousins, who treated her as one of their own. At age 16, Virginia met Frank, then a fighter pilot with the Flying Tigers. They wedded three years later and moved to Taiwan, where Virginia worked for the U.S. Military Advisory Corp, and Frank served as a military official with the Kuomintang. In Taiwan, Virginia gave birth to two beloved children, David and Mayling. When David and Mayling reached their teen years, they came to America to pursue educational opportunities. Virginia moved to LaFayette, Indiana to reunite with them. Upon Frank and Virginia's arrival here, God blessed them with a third child, Elaine. Virginia ran a number of successful small businesses in the U.S., including several restaurants, ultimately building her way up to residential real estate investments, which she managed herself up to three years ago. Virginia had a naturally warm and generous spirit. Over the course of six decades, she welcomed scores of friends and relatives into her home, and she poured her love into preparing exquisite meals for every one of them. A devout Christian, Virginia volunteered extensively at Chinese Faith Church, often cooking for the entire congregation. Virginia and Frank happily shared 71 years together. Frank held her hand, and her children sang her favorite lullaby as she drifted off peacefully into sleep on July 7.
