Jay, Jan & Bob, Very very sorry to hear of Virginia's passing. I believe she was the last Chenot Place parent still standing out of the original crew going back to the 50's. She was an incredible person always positive. Beloved friend and client for many many years. My deepest sympathy from our entire family. She will be missed by all. She was one of the best parents ever. Always, Jim & Jane Pauley & Family

I greatly enjoyed many visits with Virginia over the years as she lived across the street from me in Heritage Estates. She was very interested in the people who lived in the neighborhood. She was fiercely independent, and one tough cookie to have lived all these years by herself and not driving. But Jay and Jan kept close tabs on her. RIP Virginia! JGB
