Virginia enjoyed spending time with her great-grandchildren. They brought her lots of joy. She enjoyed going on Sunday drives to the lakes and cooking with her son, Gary. She enjoyed talking with her son, Don, about shopping or going shopping with him. She enjoyed talking to her daughter, Kirstie, about boys and friends and the good/bad in people. Most of all she enjoyed the time spent with the love of her life,Harvey. She was married to him for 49 years. They were together for 52 years. Our favorite saying was when mom would say “JUMBO” “Cheyenne, Wyoming” or “I burnt the Damn Chicken”. It was funny because that is when her Spanish accent would come out and we would crack up. She also liked to torment our father by hollering his name “Harvey, Harvey, Harvey…”. Dad would reply back. “Damn it Virginia, what do you want now?” They were inseparable. When one of themwas in the hospital the other would stay with the other or sleep on the couch because each other couldn’t sleep unless they were next to each other. Our mom was our “HERO” andshe will be greatly missed. She raised her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to know that it is always better to give than to receive. She raised us to work hard because nothing in this life is free. She would give you her last dollar if you needed it, which is why she enjoyed cooking for the senior citizens of Indian Hills Manor. Mom was our best friend. We knew we could always talk to her about anything and everything. Now she can spend her 50th Anniversary with dad, dancing to Conway Twitty and Connie Smith.
Services will be 2:00 p.m.on Thursday, August 10, 2017 in the Lakeview Chapel at Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral Home. A celebration of life will follow immediately at the GI Forum 619 S. Greeley Highway.
