Virginia McAdams Thompson

December 30, 1955June 7, 2018

Virginia “Bunny” McAdams Thompson, 62, born in Danville, VA, went to be free in heaven with God on Thursday, June 7, 2018 after a long battle with Spinocerebellar Ataxia type 3. She was born on December 30, 1955 to parents, the late Paul Vincent Fitzgerald Jr., and the late Nancy Brown Fitzgerald. She has two siblings, big brother Paul Vincent Fitzgerald III, and little sister Nancy Sherine Fitzgerald. She grew up in Reidsville NC and attended South End Elementary School, Reidsville Junior High School, and Oak Ridge Academy for high school, class of 1974. Virginia attended UNC-G and graduated with double degrees in both Music and English. A memorial celebration of life service will be held at Hanes- Lineberry at 515 N Elm St, Greensboro on Wednesday, June 13, at 5:30 pm. The family will receive friends from 4:00 - 5:00 pm prior to the service. Please wear bright colors; Bunny’s favorite color was purple! Also, please don’t feel the pressure to dress a certain way. Bunny would love it most to have all her friends and family there, so come as you are comfortable. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking if you feel moved to do so, please make a donation in Bunny’s name to the National Ataxia Foundation, Bunny met her first husband, Thomas Addison McAdams III, and they wed in 1978. Together they had four children, Kristina Louise, Megan Elizabeth, Jennifer Lynn, and Thomas Addison IV. She later remarried her current husband, Larry Wayne Thompson, in 1992. Bunny made her working career as a secretary but considered her true calling in life as being a mother. Nothing made her happier than being with her children. The most memorable of all of Bunny’s great qualities were her contagious happiness, boundless love, her warm smile, and her kindness. She was a fighter and never complained. She enjoyed life in the moment, and set an example of what true strength is and what is really important in life. She had a great sense of humor, always finding the "silly" in everything. She was kind and gentle to everyone she met. No matter what life threw her way, she caught it and made it great. She found immense joy and touched the lives of all her beautiful and handsome grandchildren, Taylor Anne-Marie, Carsyn McKenzie, Natalie Renee, Kohen Damien, Callie Aura, Silas Michael, and Brynn Paige. We are all forever changed for the better for having Bunny in our lives. Gone from this physical world, until we meet again one day and always in our hearts. Miss you like crazy. We love you Mom. Squirrel! 😊

Very sad to hear about the passing of Bunny. I knew her very early in life as a neighbor and a n early childhood playmate. She was very lovely in every way. My condolences to the entire family, especially Peppy and Sherry

I loved Virginia with all my heart. I miss her everyday. I still look for her every morning at Alston Brook. She always had a smile on her face. Never complained. Her family will also be missed. I will miss my hugs from Jennie when she came to visit her mom. Fly high my little angel. Until we meet again.
