Virginia found such love and happiness spending days relaxing with family in the sunshine and watching the beautiful sunsets every night. She was a very calm, peaceful and loving person. Let’s not forget those games of Phase 10 when she was the champion most of the time. Let's not forget Mom’s favorite saying. “It is what it is” Our mothers Mom, our Mom, her daughter Vickie and her granddaughter Bobbijo four generations all born 22 years apart. And now to finish the legacy Mom passes in 2022. Love your children.
I will never forget all the memories and all the years I spent with you and Pop, all the years you watched me grow into the person I am today. You held me very close in your heart Nan, from the day I was born until the day you passed. I know Pop was calling you to come home because he needed his cup of coffee and he was tired of waiting for it. Love Jake Tupper
Going to North Carolina each summer to visit you and Pop was what I looked forward to every year. You spent your life taking care of every one, and it’s finally time for you to relax. Love Trevor Tupper
You always spoiled us Nanny and made our trips to Oak Island, NC the absolute best. I will always cherish the time you spent with Grady and Reese. You just couldn’t wait to get your hands on those babies. Nanny use to say just let the kids be kids. At Nannies house there was never any rules. Love Krissy Oehler & family
I will always remember Nan for the summer vacations spent on Oak Island, NC. Playing cards, the home cooked meals, and her and Pop cheering Beej and I on during our college softball games. Her beautiful smile, contagious laugh and warm touch. Love Ashley Hutnyan & family
