Virginia Lee Heady

February 28, 1925 ~ March 13, 2018 (age 93)

Virginia Lee Heady 93, Rochester, Indiana, passed away on Tuesday March 13, 2018 at Life Care Center, Rochester, Indiana. 

Virginia was born in Kewanna, Indiana on February 28, 1925, the daughter of Herman Patrick and Dessie (Zimpleman) Denton and was the oldest of 9 children. Being the oldest child she made it a point to take care of her siblings and did it well. Her sister Julia Wagner lives in Spooner, Wisconsin. She leaves her three grown children and their spouses.

 A grandmother to four and a great grandmother to four happy healthy children under the age of 5.  Virginia loved her family and they loved her. Despite the geographic distance her family was there for her. If you asked her about her kids... be prepared for a long discussion. Virginia was a force to be reckoned with and at 93 we love to say she still had her "spunky attitude" and lived her life "her way." She was a good friend to her children and her Rochester, Indiana friends. 

Virginia loved her clubs.... She was known to enjoy her "bubbles" while at the Eagles Club. While visiting Virginia her family came to love the Saturday night meals and the friendship of the Eagles club members. She relished being a member of many clubs and was proud of the good work they did for the community.. 

Her family would like to thank so many people in the Rochester, Indiana community. We will be forever grateful for your help and kindness. Webb's Pharmacy treated her with kindness and respect. Waterhaven Apartments and their team looked after Virginia like she was family. Rochester Telephone and First Bank of Berne have been very kind to her and her family. Life Care was her last home.  It was obvious that they cared for our mom and did everything in their power to make her happy and comfortable. Virginia passed peacefully with her daughter by her side. The entire Life Care staff was wonderful to Virginia. To them and everyone else in the community we thank you for your caring spirit.

It is only fitting to end this obituary with Virginia's famous statement…."Blue Skies and Butterflies" to everyone in the Rochester, Indiana community
