Virginia Sanderson Obituary

Virginia "Ginner" R. Sanderson was welcomed into her heavenly home on November 12, 2023. She passed away peacefully in the early morning hours with her husband, Charles F. Sanderson, by her side. Her passing comes after a brief stay at Trustwell Living at Clyde Gardens Place in Clyde, Ohio, where she received exceptional care for various health related complications including dementia. She was 78 years old.

Virginia was born on July 24, 1945 to her parents Estie and Arley Adams of Republic, Ohio. She married Charles F. Sanderson on October 9, 1965. They were blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Kimberly who would go on to marry Keith Babcock and Michele who would go on to marry Thomas Rogers. Most of their career and life’s work was spent owning and operating Sanderson Trucking, which they had for 35 years. Charles and Virginia were blessed to have 2 granddaughters, Brittany who would go on to marry John Hofelich and Brooke who would go on to marry Frank Firestine. An even greater blessing was two great-grandchildren, Emma Grace Hofelich and Jackson Charles Hofelich, their pride and joy. Together, Charles and Virginia enjoyed boating and riding their Harley Davidson. They developed many friendships throughout the years through both. Virginia enjoyed cooking and shopping, and took great pride in her home. However, above all, her most prized work was her devotion to her family. She was an exceptional example of a woman of faith. She and Charles regularly attended church, where they were actively involved, in most recent years at Harvest Baptist Temple of Clyde.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents Estie and Arley Adams, her sister and brother-in-law Greta and Roger Dick, her brother Joe Adams, and her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Marlene and Ray Beier. She is survived by her husband, Charles F. Sanderson, her daughters and their spouses, Kim and Keith Babcock and Michele and Thomas Rogers, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, her siblings and their spouses, Janice (Ed) Vargo, Glenda (Merrill) Smith, Patricia Nation and Avis (Dennis) Kreais and her sister-in-law Alice Adams.
