We have many warm memories of friendship with Virginia and Jack over the years: shared meals, conversations about family and life, walks together, gatherings in the community, a trip to Mexico. They were such kind and interesting people. We've missed Jack and now we will be missing Virginia, too. Despite her great loss and coping with health issues, Virginia kept going with as much resilience as she could. She loved her children with all her heart, and they devotedly cared for and supported her always. Rest in peace, good friend.

I worked with Virginia at the Dr. office of Drs Leppink, Phillips, and others. Virginia was a good worker! We all worked so hard, but Virginia always made it fun, we could always get a laugh out of her no matter how swamped we were. One of the Dr's. always called her Jenny, I always wondered why? But it made her laugh! She was a great coworker and friend. It's been 20 years since I've seen her, but I have very fond memories of her!

While we have never met, I feel a connection with Virginia since I am also Virginia Wilson Sloothaak. I have seen her name before and while we are not related. Her death touches me and you are in my prayers.
