Virginia Wurster

have a memory or condolence to add?

Virginia Wurster was a lady. Her dress was impeccable and her coiffure (which changed from dark to white at some point) was always perfect. She had beautiful blue eyes.
I remember the thoughtful details Mrs. Wurster put into the bridal showers she planned and hosted, not only for her daughter Nancy, but also her future daughters-in-law Monica, Joanie and Heather. For one shower the favors were spun glass ornaments in handmade taffeta bags; for another the table centerpieces were clustered delicate glass vases that each held a carnation. I still have those mementos.
