Virginia retired from Eastern State Hospital after 26 years of service with the housekeeping department.
Virginia was married to the late George W. Taylor Sr., and from this union, they were blessed with nine children. She was always very concerned about her children, whom she loved dearly.
Anyone who knew her loved her, and she was a second mom to many. Virginia saw the good in everything and everyone, never complaining about anything. She was kind, compassionate, considerate, and remained a strong woman to the very end. Our hearts were broken the moment you closed your eyes. We love you and you will be greatly missed by your children and other loved ones.
