Virginia was a sweet and crafty soul. She would be found most
often sitting on her floral couch crocheting various fun things
including booties for her great grandchildren, pot holders for
her kitchen, purses, quilts, and more. She loved to make so
many things. One of the most notable items were the handmade
shirts her husband C.R. Bruch, which he wore daily. Her skill also
reached the kitchen table. She loved to make cookies and
candies for the holidays to mail out to family members. She
was famous for her Jell-o bowls at various family events.
Virginia loved the outdoors. She often admired her garden in
the backyard. She also enjoyed watching the various birds that
flocked therein. Her door was always open to family and
friends, both near and far. Family was everything to her. She
was very passionate about her heritage and family history. We
are going to strive to carry on that passion so future generations
do not forget all the wonderful discoveries she found.
Virginia passed quietly in the early hours of August 15, 2023.
She will be greatly missed and greatly admired.
A Celebration of Virginia’s Life will be held on Sunday, October 15, 2023.
