Virginia Fernandez Melgoza, age 85, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones on May 19, 2019. 

She was born June 25, 1933 in Gomez Farias, Michoacan to Isiderio Fernandez and Carmen Melgoza. She married Ramon F. Elias May 13, 1949.

Virginia was known for her unique and beautiful roses. If she wasn’t inside the house, her family always knew exactly where to find her.

She was very meticulous about everything she did. This included her extraordinary garden, her tidy home, her cross stitching and crotchet work. 

Virginia made beautiful doilies, pillow cases and bedspreads. Her children remember wearing clothing she used to make for them. 

After retiring, Virginia took up oil painting. Most of her paintings were flowers, especially roses.

Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Roberto, Josefina, Jose Luis, Lucila, Carmen, Teresa, Jorge and Sylvia. Twenty-four (24) grandchildren and twenty-five (25) great-grandchildren. Her brother, David, and sisters Eva, Carmen, Maria Elena, Cleotilde, Esperanza, Maria Isabel and Gloria.

Virginia is preceded in death by her son Ramon, husband, Ramon, sister Alicia and brother Eriberto.

A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, June 1, 2019 St. Paul’s Catholic Church. 

In lieu of flowers her family asks that donations be made to causes or charities you hold dear to your heart. “For it is in giving that we receive” St. Francis de Assisi
