Virginia L. Estep, 89, of Tampa, passed away April 04, 2020. She enjoyed a long career as a seamstress and until her retirement she worked for the best menswear companies of Tampa. Virginia proudly produced many homemade pieces of work for family and friends. Gifts like coasters, tablecloths and runners, pillows, costumes for events like Halloween, Christmas, and Gasparilla, and especially quilts. She would also design quilts and pillows for the new babies of the family specifically for their arrival. Her greatest joy was giving these gifts with love. Virginia was a gem at country cooking and delighted in sharing good food with guests in her home. She loved collecting family photos, stories, and would often share with family members on daily phone calls. Virginia is preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, George B. Estep; daughter, Donna Jean Estep; grandson, Sammy DeJesus; her parents, Etta and Hugh Wilburn; sisters, Minnie Munsey and Dorothy Ridpath; brothers, Ernest, Bill, Clarence, Grady, Preston, and Dextor Wilburn.
