Virginia George

- December 13, 2023

Virginia Catherine (Judy) “Jenny” George of Petersburg, WV passed from this life on Wednesday, December 13, 2023 at Grant Memorial Hospital in Petersburg. She was born on March 5, 1930, at Brushy Run, West Virginia, the daughter of the late Arlie Skidmore Judy and Betty Jane (Riggleman) Judy.

In addition to her parents, Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, Clifton Rudolph “Joe” George on May 25, 2016, whom she married on September 3, 1955; and two brothers, John Paul Judy and Jesse Ray Judy.

Virginia is survived by her son, Steven Bradley George, one brother, Arlie S. “Nick” Judy, Jr. and wife Sue of Petersburg, WV, three special cousins, Eleanor Ayers of Rivesville, WV, Maggie Hartman of Franklin, WV and Carol Jean Sullivan of Aurora, CO and many nieces and nephews.

Virginia was the keeper of the stories, both in writing and in picture. She wrote stories, poetry and books to keep the history of the area and the Judy family alive for generations to come. She loved the land that she grew up on and walked it with her family, with her camera handy taking pictures to share. She enjoyed sharing with others and regularly visited in the community, the hospital or nursing homes, as long as she could. She always had a story to help lift one’s spirits and was ready to bring a smile to a face. She will be missed by many.
