|Penley, Virginia Hazel
Birth: 1922-04-16 in Augusta County, Virginia
|Virginia Hazel Penley, 89 of Leonardtown, MD died July 8, 2011 at Manorcare of Fair Oaks. Born April 16, 1922 in Augusta County, VA, she was the daughter of the late Wilson V. Fleming and Noma May Glover.|
Virginia Penley was formerly of Fairfax, VA before moving to Leonardtown, MD. She started her working career for the Interior Department of the government. She later quit to raise a family. When her children reached school age, she started working at Westmore Elementary School in the cafeteria to be able to have the same hours as her children. When Virginia remarried and moved to Leonardtown with her husband Ernest, they and four other couples founded Leonardtown Baptist Church. The church became a big part of their life working hard to not only keep the church growing, but to become a big part of it. Her husband, Ernest was a Deacon and Virginia taught Sunday School. They held prayer meetings in their home where everyone was welcomed. When Virginia became ill, she went back to Fairfax, VA to be close to her children. Though she always worked hard in the church and to help friends, if you had asked Virginia her greatest accomplishment, she would tell you it was the raising of her children.
