Melrose U.M.C. was an important part of Virginia’s life and she was part of the Women’s Missionary and a member of Women’s Aglow. Virginia passed down many things to her family: her love of life, her devotion to her church, and her great generosity towards other people, but more importantly, integrity. She balanced lovingly caring for her large family and her tireless efforts alongside her husband in the family crab business. Although the crab business was demanding and the season was long, Virginia kept up valiantly, setting an example that her children never forgot. Virginia was skilled at sewing, cooking and upholstery. She enjoyed playing dominoes with Harold and their friends. She was a loving mother, a devoted grandmother, and delighted in being a great-grandmother and more recently a great-great-grandmother.
Left behind to cherish Virginia’s memory are her sons Harold M. Webb, Jr. of Lottsburg and Ernie Wayne Webb of Port St. Lucie, Florida; her daughters: Madeline Webb Suttles (Daniel L.) of Reedville, Irma Webb Gammon (Ron) of Lottsburg, and Brenda W. Childress (Scott C.) of Powhatan; fourteen grandchildren, twenty-five great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents, husband, and siblings.
