    Virginia was a beautiful lady indie and out! She was more then a friend to me, more like my second mom. I’m truly gonna miss her ♥️

    I will miss Virginia’s unconditional love and friendship. Her smile and zest for life always put things in perspective. I was truly blessed the day she came to work with me in the personnel office at Banquet Foods. Many happy memories began that day.
    To her family take comfort in her love for you and the joy she has now in the fullness of Jesus our Savior

    Virginia was married to my brother. I have known her for at least 40 years. Connie I am sorry for your loss. Virginia is with God no more sickness no more pain. I believe that Danny is with her and all of the loved ones that has passed they’re all sitting around a table and having a party and happy to see her. In loving memory of Virginia Petty you will be missed. Love Jennifer Petty Robbs.

    Connie and Lee, I am so sorry for your loss. Virginia was a wonderful person, beautiful inside and out, kind and patient. I know this is hard, but God prepares us for the end of life and the beginning of a new life in heaven. It makes my heart happy to think of Virginia in heaven with Danny and all the other beloved family members that are already there.
    I loved you Virginia, you made my life better just being a part of it. I will never forget, being a little girl and you and Danny taking Deeann and I to the Long Beach Pier, so much fun, but what I remember the most is how you laid your head on Danny’s shoulder on the way home, I knew then even then, this was a great love. Thank you Virginia for all that love, you will always be remembered in love. Danita Petty Witcher

    Dear Connie & Leland,
    My heart is broken. Auntie Virginia and Vanessa stopped by to visit us earlier this year when Vanessa returned home. Auntie called me to ask about our newborn granddaughter. Her laugh over the phone was infectious as I described the baby’s large round head. That loving laugh is what I will miss the most. She took care of me when I was a little girl. She always made me feel safe.

    Our deepest condolences,

    Cousin Denise & Bruce
