LUCK, Virginia Carter Swearengin, 98, of Sandston, went to be with her Lord and Savior on August 12, 2019. She was preceded in death by her two husbands, Rolland Swearengin, and Edward M. Luck, Jr; two daughters, Virginia Swearengin Matthews Motley; Cora Ella Swearengin Hall; 4 grandchildren, Sharon, Michael, and James Swearengin, Jr., and Alan H. Matthews, Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Linda L. Toler; three sons, James A. Swearengin (Cheryl), Eugene Marshall Luck (Nina), Edward Wayne Luck (Martha); son-in-law, Dennis W. Hall; and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, great-great-great grandchildren, neices, and nephews. Virginia was born in Bath County, Va to William Howard Carter and Ella Conley Carter on May 10, 1921, and was the youngest of 9 children. She was a devoted mother, wife, and Nana; and her family was her top priority. She was well loved by all who knew her. She loved people, life, birds, roses, and loved to travel. She suffered from Alzheimers and fought a long and courageous battle for 12 years, but still had a smile, laugh, and twinkle in those blue eyes that would melt your heart. Special thanks to Medi Hospice (Alan and Dixie); Care Advantage; Dr. Jordan Sayles; caregivers, Melanie, Carla, Deborah, and Cameron; and to Mechanicsville Medical Center for the support and love given to Linda during her mother’s illness. As a family we feel incredibly blessed that our mother was in our lives for so many years. We love you very much. The family will receive friends on Thursday, August 15, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. at Nelsen Funeral Home, 4650 S. Laburnum Ave., Richmond, Va 23231, where a funeral service will be held on Friday, August 16, at 10 a.m. Interment will follow at Washington Memorial Park.

I worked with Dr Jordan Sayles for 25+ years, and I remember this dear lady and her daughter with such fond memories. I was thinking about them today as I drove by their house. She had a long wonderful life, and yes, I remember her smile the most! Linda, I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
