Virginia Lee Hanawalt, age 81. On a snowy January day, the first-born child of Mary M. and Arthur J. Hanawalt quietly slipped away surrounded by her little sisters Leslie Carol, Janet Mae, and Mary Ellen, who will miss her dearly.Virginia was innately curious about everything around her and especially enjoyed the outdoors, long drives in the country, babies, and all animals, especially kittens. A trip to the zoo always thrilled her. A kind and generous soul, she had an impish sense of humor and a flawless memory. Although a childhood disease led her down a path different from her sisters, the bond between them never wavered, and she bore life’s hardships without complaint. She will be forever remembered and missed by her three sisters, especially for her sparkling blue eyes and infectious laughter.
Good night, sweet lady,
May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
