Virginia Marjorie Lemons, 95, years young, passed away peacefully on May 1, 2015 at Holly Creek Retirement Community in Centennial, CO in the company of her oldest son, Charles. She remained alert, with a sense of humor, and thinking of others to the last. Born in South Bend, Indiana on July 26, 1919 as Virginia Marjorie Voigt, she married Charles Frederick Lemons in 1941 and they had five sons.
Virginia (Ginny) was always hardworking, service-oriented, progressive and inclusive in her thinking and her love of others. She aspired to be a nurse from early on, encouraged by her younger brother Jack. She graduated from Memorial Hospital Nursing School as an RN, and worked much of her life full or part-time. She loved being a nurse and brought endless tales (full of real life and humor) back home to share with her family.
