She was married to Audrey Cleo Duncan for 52 years. Cleo went to Jesus in 1991. She is survived by 4 children, Johnny Duncan, Jeannie Edwards, Sandra Mickelson and Gary Duncan. She too, was the Patriarch to 13 Grandchildren, 37 Great Grandchildren and 33 Great-Great Grandchildren ranging in age from 2 days to 60 years. The Crowning Jewel of her life, though second to Jesus was family. She had a total of 83 Grandchildren, for all of whom she bought Christmas presents. From a large family of big personalities and voices she preferred listening. She inspired us most through her commitment and devotion to Jesus and her desire to listen. Affectionately and most popularly known as Grandma, Virginia was the most contented and at peace person most of us will ever know.

When I was very little, grandma gave me a sand dollar and said to keep it safe because God put little doves inside and to not break it until I give my life to God. I asked her what that meant and she told me when I was older I would understand. She always told me about the gospel and read the Bible and told stories. One day I understood. I was 16 and found the sand dollar and brought it to her house and we broke it and she taught me about the doves inside and how God created them special even though they were tiny so everything and everyone had a purpose. She taught me that now the sand dollar was just a shell like a body holding a soul that was beautiful doves inside. I put the doves in a tiny glass container and still have them. God blessed me with having grandma in myl ife.
