Virginia Lawless was a very special woman. She showed two teenage girls what motherly love should look like. She was a very hard working lady who kept house, was an excellent cook, tended a big garden ( and made her children help). She canned and put up food to feed her family. She was an excellent seamstress. She raised 5 beautiful girls and taught them how to be good mothers and to keep house. While she may have made them walk the chalk line she also took them and spent every afternoon in the summer with them at the Fieldale pool, and yearly trips to the beach . I spent every Sat. night and many weekdays at their home. Her daughter Teresa was my best friend . She took my sister and I to church every Sunday. She threw me a bridal shower. Crocheted a beautiful baby Afghan for my son. She had many more than 5 daughters, being a girl scout leader for many years. I am very proud to be counted as one of them. She will be greatly missed as she was so greatly loved.
