Virginia and my mother, Thelma Brown, were very good friends. Mom and Virginia met at American Tobacco and shared good times and bad during their years of friendship, working together and raising children together. Mom passed in 2018. I cherish the thought of them being together again. My condolences to her family.

She was my Aunt Becky, my grandmother's younger sister, the last of my aunties. I remember camping trips in the RV at Jamestown, Christmas visits to Richmond, stories about Aunt Becky being the family beauty..... I'll never forget her smile, so full of warmth. My heart goes out to my cousins Patty and Phyllis.
My love to you guys and your family,
Cora's granddaughter, Cousin Bonnie
