Virginia A. von Pechmann
March 23, 1941 – September 2, 2019
Virginia A. von Pechmann was born in San Antonio, Texas on March 23, 1941 to parents Marvin Aaron and Rosa Finch Aaron. In 1959, Virginia graduated from South San High School and later attended San Antonio College. After moving to California, she married Heinz “Hank” A. von Pechmann on October 23, 1971. Shortly after, the couple moved to Texas and made Houston their home. Hank and “VA” (as he would call her) started a life of entrepreneurship and with their beloved dogs, they would enjoy making friends and memories together for years to come.
Although Virginia didn’t have children of her own, she took a special interest in the lives of her family and friends. She loved making strangers into friends; if you were an acquaintance of hers, you would soon be on her mailing list or receiving special gifts. Her passion was taking care of the people around her. Most recently, Virginia relied on help from her closest friends and on behalf of her family, we sincerely thank her friends of Houston for caring for our sister and aunt.
Virginia was preceded in death by her husband Hank von Pechmann and her parents Marvin and Rosa Aaron. She is survived by her three brothers: Marvin Aaron of New Braunfels, TX, Frank Aaron of Kingsland, TX and Claude Aaron of Pleasanton, TX. Also by her sister, Elaine Farris of Kingsland, TX and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Please join her family and friends to celebrate her life on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019 at Earthman Funeral Directors, 8303 Katy Fwy. Houston, TX. Visitation at 4:00-6:00pm; Service starting at 6:00 and a reception to follow. The burial will take place at 1:30pm on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park in Burnet, TX with a reception to follow at the Kingsland Community Center.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to MD Anderson Cancer Center in memory of the deep respect Virginia held for the progress they have made in the fight against cancer. (gifts.mdanderson.org)

Miss Von-Pechmann, I am so sad to hear of your passing. I consider you to be not only a customer but a good friend of mine. I will remember your kind heart and thoughtfulness. I hope that you are now with Hank, whom I never met as he had already passed when we met over fifteen years ago. I will miss talking to you. I want to thank you for being my friend and always thinking about me and my family. May you rest in peace.
