Virginia Clinton

Virginia Clinton, 84, of Parkersburg, passed away on Aug. 10, 2014.

She is the daughter of the late Cofer and Alva Craig of Edgelawn.

Virginia was happily married to Richard Louis Clinton for 35 years until his death in 1984. She was a loving wife, an excellent mother and loyal friend. Virginia attended church her whole life and was a member of St. John’s United Methodist Church in Vienna.

Virginia is survived by her children, Jenny( Gabe) Artigas of Washington State, Donna Davis of Parkersburg, Rick Clinton (Angie) of Boaz, and Jan (Dave) Allen of Parkersburg. She has five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, as well as her surviving sister, Thelma (Gerald) Mathess of Parkersburg.

Virginia was a award winning quilter with her work shown in Red Book Magazine. “The only way to get one of my quilts is to be in the family” she often said. She taught her granddaughter, Jesse Cottrell to quilt at a young age, a family tradition which Jesse continues. Virginia loved flower gardens and created many beautiful flower beds. Her daughters, Jenny and Jan, followed in her footsteps. She was also an avid reader, a joy that her daughter Donna acquired. Virginia cherished the companionship of her son, Rick, and especially enjoyed watching their favorite television programs together.
