Virginia Ann Hart, 87, of King City, passed away March 3, 2019. Virginia was born in Portland Oregon on February 6, 1932, and was the youngest of five sisters. She graduated from Blessed Sacrament Catholic grade school and Immaculata Academy. She was married to James A. Hart on February 16, 1952. Virginia was a lifetime active member of the Catholic Church. Many a Sunday she enjoyed brunch after Mass with her family.
Virginia and Jim often got together with family and friends, listening to big band music and going dancing. She was a homemaker, lovingly raising their 6 children, and loved spending time with their growing families. She was a gifted seamstress, tailoring clothes for her children, and even made her daughter’s wedding gown and bridesmaid’s dresses.
Virginia worked in clerical / secretarial positions for most of her career, including at First Interstate Bank, and retired after 15 years working for the Portland Police Chief. She continued working as a volunteer on a Federal grand jury for a few years afterwards.
She did love a great mystery novel, and Virginia found enjoyment reading, doing crossword puzzles, Sudoku, playing cards and board games, jigsaw puzzles, and watching Trailblazer basketball games. Other activities included Bunco and women’s bowling league.
Virginia enjoyed spending time with her large extended family, camping, boating, picnicking, and traveling to national parks, the ocean beaches, lakes and rivers of Oregon, as well as trips to the southwest states, and South Africa, Europe, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands. After she moved to King City, Virginia loved going to Spirit Mountain Casino and on other excursions with the senior travel club.
Virginia was preceded in death by her husband James in 2005, and her sisters Florence, Jean, Betty and Leona.

I’m am very saddened by the news of Virginia’s passing and I will miss seeing her smiling face. Virginia’s was a lovely lady and she always has such kind words to say to everyone. I had the honor of seeing and chatting with her during her many Sunday brunches after mass. She would always ask how I was doing and show a interest in my life. Even though I was not part of her immediate family I felt very close to her and my thoughts and prayers are with her family through this difficult time. Anybody who met or interacted with Virginia should count themselves lucky that they met such a amazing lady.
