I knew Miss Virginia from the Singles group at First United Methodist Church. She was always so much fun with a great attitude. She was a wonderful role model for us all. Everyone should have her charm and enthusiasm. I no longer live in Chattanooga so it has been a long time since I have seen her, but she was one of a kind and unforgettable.

For many years Virginia was part of our TOTS senior group
at Tyner UMC. We miss her smile, positive attitude, seasonal
attire and the wonderful Toffee Bark which she often brought
to our meetings.
