ANNA VIRGINIA WILLINGHAM GRAHAM
Anna Virginia Willingham went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, August 2, 2017. She was peaceful at home with beloved family. Virginia was born the second child of Nelson and Clara Willingham on February 7, 1926 on a farm in The Plains, Virginia. She had two sisters and two brothers and was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Virginia left The Plains at the age of 16. She went to Washington, D.C. and worked as a waitress for S & W Cafeteria.
She became Anna Virginia Graham when she married the love of her life, Warren Lee Graham (Bob), September 29, 1946, whom she had known all her life, in fact, she and Bob had been born in the same house in The Plains.
The Grahams lived in Arlington, Fairfax, Manassas, Nokesville and Stafford, VA. Bob worked in landscaping and Virginia owned and operated a beauty shop, Graham's Hairstylist. Being married to Bob, making him happy, and doing hair were the loves of her life.
Bob and Virginia moved to South Florida in 1996. She lost her life partner in 2001, but continued to operate her business until 2002, and took care of her third cousin, Herbert Gray, for fifteen years until his death in 2014.
Virginia was raised Episcopalian, attended Episcopalian and Methodist churches, and finally, Deltona Presbyterian Church from 2002 until her death.
Virginia loved to dance, cook, sew, clean, do yardwork and enjoyed people. Nothing gave her greater pleasure than having people come into her home.
She lived a good life. She was born to loving parents and had wonderful sisters and brothers. Her husband loved her and she loved him. She had dogs that she loved, and they loved her and provided wonderful companionship. She had good friends and neighbors, beautiful homes, possessions, delicious food, beautiful clothes, and travels by cars and ships.
God was good to Virginia. She is now with God. She is a young woman again with no pain; her hair is done just so; she is dressed in beautiful clothes; but best of all, Bob is by her side. They have just hosted a delicious dinner for 20 guests, and they are ready to go out dancing.
A memorial service will be held at Deltona Presbyterian Church on Saturday August 26, 2017 at 1 PM. A luncheon will follow for the gathering of family and friends. Inurnment will be in Stonewall Memory Gardens in Manassas, VA. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her memory to the Deltona Presbyterian Food Pantry, 2300 Howland Blvd., Deltona, FL 32738.
