Virginia McClellan was loved and will be deeply missed, not just by her family, but by those who knew her or worked with her during her long and well-lived life. She worked her early years as a seamstress and in her later years became an artist of quilting and embroidery. She loved to travel and visited many of the United States. Her deep faith, her humor, and her gentle kindness will stay in our hearts forever.
