VIRGINIA MARY SINCLAIR was peacefully called home by her Lord on May 25th, 2016 at the age of 94 years.
Virginia was born on March 8th, 1922 in Taber Alberta to John Wesley Fallon and Elva Dell Pickett. She was the one of six children. Irene, Bud, Jerrald, Lynn and Patricia.
She married David Sinclair in 1940. David was in the army and was sent overseas. Shortly after this Virginia also joined the army. She was stationed in Calgary as a payroll clerk. After the war Virginia and David started a family. They had three children, Glen, Patricia, and John.
Virginia worked at Central School and then Dr. Hammond school until her retirement. She is often fondly remembered by so many past staff and students for her helpful nature.
Virginia is best remembered for her giving, and never saying no to anyone. She was an active member of the LDS church, the Taber Legion, Parkside Manor senior centre, and Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She was always driven to do for others, planning trips, organizing Parkside dinners or the annual seniors week shows and just about anything else that needed doing which included peeling many potatoes. She was proud to have been chosen as Taber’s Senior Citizen of the year. Ginny, as she was affectionately called by many was also known for always having a quilt on the go and every family member cherished the handmade quilts they received at Christmas time. Her upstairs was filled with boxes of little squares of fabric waiting to be arranged into one of her masterpieces. She was a frugal person who didn’t like to waste anything.
She was devoted to researching her Genealogy and enjoyed many trips with her daughter Pat to investigate family histories. Her Genealogy collection would be the envy of even hard core Genealogy buffs.
Sadly Virginia lost so many loved ones in her life and only her faith helped her survive those losses. She was predeceased by her Father John, Mother Elva, sister Irene, her infant son Glen, husband David, daughter Pat, brothers Bud and Jerrald, uncle Charles Sinclair and brother-in-law Hans Von Chorus. Though she had many losses Virginia never felt sorry for herself and went on doing for others.
She is survived by her son John (Gloria), grandson Jason (Karen), brother Lynn (Beryl) Layton, sister Patricia Von Chorus as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins which all held a special place in her heart.
She was well known for her writing of poems, and stories for many a program. One of her favorite accomplishments was compiling the Golden book of Memories to commemorate Central school. She still has a brick from that old school.
In her later years Virginia enjoyed her friends and playing cards at Parkside. She loved going on excursions with the other seniors.
Virginia lived a full life and will be missed by everyone whose life she touched. It is with great sadness and fond memories we say goodbye to our Virginia.
Special thanks must be given to the doctors and nursing staff at the Taber Hospital for the care, compassion, and dignity shown Virginia and her family in her last days. We cannot thank them enough.
The Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5314-54 Street, Taber.
Interment to follow in the Taber Memorial Gardens.
