I knew Virginia from the Zodiac dance club and she was such a dear lady. She was active in the club and had our board members out to her son's house on the river for picnics. After she had to quit the dances, she was really missed. I am so sorry to see that she has passed away. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I'm saddened to her of Mrs. Beach's passing. She was in the Mixed Bible Class at New Covenant ARP Church with me and my daughter, Dana Stuart. I always enjoyed talking to her and she was always up-beat and joyful.
