February 1, 1924 – July 7, 2018
Beloved mother Virginia F. Thomas, 94, of Blaine, WA passed away into the loving arms of our Lord on the afternoon of July 7, 2018 at Stafholt Nursing Home. Virginia was visited and comforted by family members, with her daughters by her side at the time of passing.
Virginia was born February 1, 1924, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a daughter of Marculino and Maria D.A. Cordeiro.
Virginia was a lifelong Christian with a deep abiding faith. She struggled with multiple sclerosis for many years, as well as other illnesses. But her faith kept her strong, with a sunny and positive attitude. Virginia was a bookkeeper for Exports, Inc. and for many years walked to and from home in downtown Blaine. Before her disability prevented it, she loved to dance. Virginia enjoyed gospel music, singing and one of her recent favorite musical groups was Celtic Thunder.
She is survived by daughters Sue Ann Croft of Bellingham, Lynette Ziegler of Custer, Diane Thomas of Seattle, and sons-in-law Kurt and Rick, William Thomas, grandchildren Michael, Heather Lee, Chris, Steph, Heather Ann, Aaron and Hannah, great grandchildren Lily, Coral, Melody, and Ella.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, her cousin Alice (sister in heart), son-in-law Larry, and great grandson Matthew.
Services will be held at Stafholt Nursing home, 456 C St., Blaine, WA, 98230, at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. Chad Johnson will officiate. Virginia’s final resting place will be Enterprise Cemetery.
The family would especially like to thank the staff of Stafholt for their excellent and loving care of her, and the staff of Hospice for their constant, attentive treatment. In Lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice or Stafholt Nursing Home.
