Virginia was born in Watertown, NY on 6/16/1922, grew up in Rochester, NY and moved to Ontario, NY in 1964. After retiring from Kodak, Nana took a great interest in golfing that she enjoyed many years. Time took her ability to golf away, but she still enjoyed watching it on TV. Besides golfing she was an excellent bowler. Nana bowled on a league until 2016. In recent years she turned to jigsaw puzzles to fill her days. On warm sunny days you could find Nana rocking in her favorite chair on the porch waiting for one of the grandchildren to show up. Her grandchildren meant everything to her. Nana was blessed to be retired at an age she could watch them grow and be involved in their lives. Kindness and love were in her wheelhouse of attributes. Nana was always there with a huge hug for anyone she met. She always made everyone feel welcome and part of the family. The twinkle in her eyes and her precious smile reflected who Nana really was.
As Nana rests in the loving arms of her savior and heavenly Father and she will be sorely missed. A great loss for this world and her family, but our memories will always keep her close by.
