Virginia grew up in Nordheim, and will be remembered as the Valedictorian of her graduating class of 1961 at Nordheim High School. She also served as treasurer of her Senior Class.

Duies and Virginia met in 1972 and married soon after, having been together 47 plus years, where they were each other’s best friend. They became a beautiful blended family of eight children.

She was an active member of The Country Church in Marion where she loved volunteering at the “Attic” with her friends. Virginia served as a girl scout leader, a Jones Creek 4H leader with her husband, she also served as 4H Treasurer at state level, was Tops Leader of the Seguin Tops groups, and was a member of the Go Texan Committee.

Virginia was very creative and enjoyed arts and crafts with her children and grandchildren. During hunting season, she was either in the back yard in her blind or in the kitchen making sausage that she harvested with her sons and grandsons. She loved out hunting every other member of the family, especially her son Ray.

Virginia was known for her wedding cakes that she baked for many friends and family members. The perfect hostess, she loved throwing parties no matter what the occasion.

Her favorite thing was traveling with the family, especially to Cloud Croft, New Mexico. Except for the one time she called home to Duies that she didn’t make it to Cloud Croft, but somehow ended up with her daughter and some of her grandkids in beautiful Bozeman, Montana!!

She is preceded in death by her parents and sons, Robbie Jahns and Nathan Jahns.
