Virginia was born in Williams Lake, BC in 1950. She lived in many places and finally settled in Barriere in the mid 1980’s. She worked at the Legion and then the Post Office and made many life long friends here. Ginny loved flowers birds, wind chimes, country music, camping, Dan and her faithful companion, Ruthie. Most of all, Virginia loved her children and grandchildren. It was her times with them that she enjoyed the most and these are the times she lived for. We will miss you so, so much.
