Old Lyme - Virginia E. Card (Paul), 86, passed away Sept. 4, 2020, at her home in Old Lyme. She was born March 14, 1934, to Watson and Jennie Paul in Norwich. Virginia married Richard H. Card Oct. 12, 1957. They were together 60 years and had two daughters, Susan and Amee.

Virginia received her nursing degree from the HNA School of Practical Nursing in Boston in 1957. A lifelong member of Christ Lutheran Church's congregation, she was active in the Women's Guild and Christmas fairs. As an avid quilter, she was a member of the Clamshell Quilters Guild.

Virginia is survived by her daughters, Amee Card and Susan Potts; her grandchildren, Justin and Lindsey Potts; and her sister Janice Arment. She will always be remembered in our hearts as a woman with a compassionate, soft, and genuine spirit.

A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, at Duck River Cemetery, Old Lyme. Those who wish to pay their respects to Virginia and her family may attend. The family asks that mask be worn.

Amee & Susan, I'm sorry for your loss. I have nothing but good memories when Grampa & Grandma Paul would bring me out to visit y'all. Both your parents were such kind, loving souls. I still have the Lord's Prayer your mom made Grandma Paul as a gift, it hangs proudly in my sunroom to this day. During this time, celebrate all the beautiful memories you have had with your parents, celebrate their life. Sending much love. ❤
