We will miss Virginia. She was our dear friend and neighbor across Old MIll Road in Palatine where our kids grew up together. She was a good mom and a good wife.. There was no better neighbor and no better friend. We loved her and she loved us.

Virginia was like a second mother to me. She was very welcoming and provided me with many meals (mainly homemade pizza and beef sandwiches) when I grew up across the street. I was fortunate to be able to visit with her and Jim about 4 years ago and she seemed the bright person I always new her to be. May she rest in peace.

To Jim and your family. To Paul, Jeanne, Marc, Lynn and your families. I am so sorry for your loss. Virginia was very sweet to all of us. If our parents were not home, we knew that we could cross the street and she would look after us. If our mom needed an egg, flour, sugar or whatever, she sent one of us to her to get it. Whether we were hanging out at each other’s houses or playing baseball together, we could always count on her warm smile and “hello”. So, yes. She will be missed. Big hugs and love to all.
