Virginia Stewart Obituary

Virginia M. Stewart, 90, of Wellington, passed peacefully into Heaven on January 17, 2024 at her home under the care of New Life Hospice. Born September 27, 1933 to the late George Harry and Clemmah Viola (Ritchey) Shuman, she graduated from New London High School in 1951, and later earned her Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certification. Always caring for others, Virginia loved working as an LPN for Weber’s Nursing Home, Tresie’s Nursing Home, and Welcome Nursing Home over the years.

When she wasn’t caring for patients at work, Virginia was caring for her own large family at home. She cherished the years spent raising her children, and later in life found immense joy with grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren, all of whom she adored. She also liked bowling, BINGO, going to casinos, and taking cruises to the Caribbean Islands.

Left to treasure Virginia’s memory are her six children that she lovingly referred to as her rose and five thorns; the thorns are her five daughters, Valerie Roberts, Vickie Young, Vaughn (Rolland) Pocock, Veta Young, and Virna Houston; and the rose was her only son, Rickie Kimbler. Additional survivors include a sister, Ruth H., fourteen grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents; two husbands, Robert M. Kimbler, and Russell Stewart; granddaughter, Robin Justice; sister, Hazel O’Brian; brother, Chuck Shuman; and step-son Jessie Stewart.
