Virginia L.
(Age 88)

Passed away August 25, 2012 in Colville, WA.

This is what she would have wanted her family and friends to know about her, “I was born December 13, 1923 in Spokane, Washington.

My father came to the United States from Belfast, Ireland as a child.

In 1919 he married my mother, Helen Virginia Craig.

I attended Grant grade school and Lewis and Clark High School.

After graduation I worked for John W. Graham Company.

In 1942 I married Paul Cruger in Spokane.

We moved to Otis Orchards in 1950.

This year we celebrated 70 years of marriage.

I was a stay-at-home mom.

We had three daughters, Gloria Knudsen, Carolyn Williams and Cathy Mogus.

We also helped raise two sets of brothers over the years (Richard and Cleveland).

I am survived by my husband, Paul; three daughters, nine grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and two sisters, Esther Walsh and Dorothy Glenn; and two brothers, Alvin and Mike Nicholl.

Traveling in our 5th wheel was adventurous and fun.

The four cruises we took were sheer pleasure.

I loved flowers and music, chocolate and coffee.

I played the piano and organ at church for many years.

My most favorite place to go was church where I could worship my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with my family and friends.

And in my younger years, teaching the hi-teen Sunday school class.

I read my Bible every day and will share one of my favorite passages of Scripture.

Psalm 91:2, “I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”

When you think of me I hope you will remember that verse and know you can trust Him too.

I’ll be waiting for you!”

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 2:00 P.M. at Valley Assembly of God, 15618 E. Broadway, Spokane Valley, WA.
