Virginia Lee Hassenflu Obituary
Virginia Lee Hassenflu, 94, of St. Augustine Beach, Florida, died at Vitas Hospice of Jacksonville on Nov. 7, 2016. Her vitality, love of education, love of life and love of others will be sorely missed.
Virginia Lee Green was born in El Dorado, Kansas, in 1922 but soon moved with her family to Kansas City, Kan.
She graduated from Wyandotte High School, received a bachelor's degree from Kansas State University and master's degrees from KSU and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In recreation leadership roles, she was sent overseas to the Philippines and to Japan with the Red Cross after World War II and served the City of Kansas City, Kan., and the State of Kansas.
Virginia was producer and talent for "Magic Window," a children's daily television offering at a Des Moines, Iowa, TV station. Her final and long-lasting show was "Romper Room School," a syndicated pre-school program shown in Kansas City, Missouri. "Miss Virginia" entertained her little friends from 1954-1964.
She served the American Red Cross, The Junior League of KCMO and was on the Alumni Board of Directors for KSU. She married Arthur Hassenflu in 1958 and had two sons. Virginia was active in numerous organizations in KC.
Virginia and Art moved full-time to St. Augustine Beach in 1987. She led the start of the St. Augustine Genealogical Society in 1989, serving in multiple positions. Virginia served as Regent of the Maria Jefferson Chapter, DAR. She was active in the Women's Exchange, the Pena/Peck House and the Ancient City Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
Virginia and her husband traveled to all continents as Sports Ambassadors in the People-to-People Tennis Program and at home played at the St. Augustine Beach and Tennis Club. Though her husband died in 1994, Virginia enjoyed tennis until she was 88 years old. She enjoyed swimming, bridge, The Red Hat Society and her genealogy. She was spotted swimming scores of laps only four weeks before her demise.
