August 12, 1940 - December 12, 2020
Virginia Howard passed away peacefully at home on December 12th after a short battle with cancer. She had been a Pasco resident since 1965. Virginia married John Howard in Colorado where they both were raised. Soon they moved their new, young family to Washington where John had accepted a coaching position at CBC. They quickly became part of a close-knit group of families associated with the college and Pasco neighbors who would all become lifelong friends. Virginia was busy as she kept up with four active kids, ran an efficient household, supported all of John’s sports teams, and volunteered throughout her life. Her house was always home to everyone… you felt welcome with her warm smile, something good to eat or drink, and her undivided attention. She was a wonderful cook and her kitchen was definitely the heart of her home. From elaborate homemade Italian dinners served to her whole family to a simple sandwich made for you to enjoy on her patio, there was always good smells and good food coming from her kitchen. Family was the most important part of her life. She excelled not only at being a loving wife and mother, but truly embracing the unconditional love and support for her family, matriarchal strength, and pure devotion. Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, John, her parents, Budgie and Katherine, her brother, Joe and brother-in-law, Larry. She is survived by her family: Children Jonna (Jeff), Joe (Leslie), Jeanene (Rod), Judy (Vaughn); Grandchildren Brock, Madison (Jake), Reid, Calvin, Olivia, Gianni, Savannah, Gage, Reagan, Aidan and Conrad; Great-granddaughter arriving in January; Brother Budgie (Anne), Brother in-law Roger (Janice) and Sisters-in-law Vera and Georgia. Virginia loved the support of Chaplaincy Hospice Care. If you would like, please make a donation at Chaplaincyhealthcare.org in her name.
