Virginia Roye Mitchell Morgan, 85, a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Christian and a true friend passed away on Thursday, October 2, 2014.

She was the seventh daughter of the late Roy and Anna Mitchell.

(Doris) Morgan, the late James M. “Mike” (and his wife Delores) Morgan, Virginia K. (Dow) McGowan, and Peggy Sue (Jim) Wells; a doting grandmother of five, Christopher M. Morgan, Garrett C.

Virginia Roye was a very hard worker in the home and outside the home. She worked in various factories as supervisor, retail sales manager, and in restaurants. She loved to be around people, going shopping, taking care of her dog, flowers, crocheting, reading and playing with her special great-grandchildren when they came to visit. She will be sadly missed by everyone that knew her.
