VIRGINIA BEACH – Virginia Morrisette, affectionately known as Mom, Grandma, Mamoo, and Sister, bid her final farewell on January 28. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at her home in Virginia Beach.
Virginia was born on April 23, 1936, in Tazwell, Va. Her journey took an unexpected turn, at age three, when she was placed in an orphanage in Johnson City, Tennessee.
Virginia met the love of her life, her late husband Howard Morrisette Sr., when she was 27 years old. Their love story was one for the books, filled with laughter, adventures, and a bond that could never be broken. Although Howard has already departed from this world, their love continues to live on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to witness it.
Her children were Virginia’s biggest passion in life. She loved all of her babies until the very end. They were her everything, and her love for them knew no bounds.
Virginia is survived by her six children, 12 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.
As we say our final goodbyes to Virginia, let us remember her as a woman who loved deeply, laughed wholeheartedly, and lived life on her own terms.
A visitation was held at New Life Church in Virginia Beach. A funeral service followed with burial at Rosewood Memorial Park.
The family asks that donations be made to St. Jude or Shriner’s Charities.
