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.
