Virginia (Kirkland) Mauney, 88, of Stanley, passed away peacefully on the morning of July 15, 2018. Virginia was born in Chambers Creek, NC to the late Ida R. (Watson) and Robert E. Kirkland. Virginia was one of 11 children growing up in a log cabin. She was an excellent gardener who especially loved to grow daylilies. She was awarded “yard of the week” numerous times in Stanley.

She will be dearly missed by those that knew and loved her. Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, seven brothers and sisters and a son; Selbe Joe Costner.
