Virginia Leatherman

(1949 – 2010)

Loving Daughter, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, and Friend passed into the sunset

December 10th, 2010

Born July 24th, 1949 to Don and Faye Leatherman in Salt lake City, Utah. There was always a city parade to celebrate her day. Having lived in Utah until 1980, Virginia made Washington her place to call home. She served the government for over 30 years. In retirement she enjoyed gardening and her family. She volunteered her time and donated what she could to help make this world a better place. She loved her family dearly, enjoyed helping others and was passionate about nature.

Virginia is survived by her children Robert (Tara) Farnsworth; Janell Farnsworth and Grandson Kyle; Jamie Farnsworth and Grandchildren Gage and Brianna; and Russell (Kristin) Farnsworth and her son Zachory. She is also survived by Brother Richard (Deanne) Leatherman; Sisters Marilyn (James) Cooper; Marsha (Michael) Copfer; and Brother David (Linda) Leatherman. She is survived by many extended families who loved her dearly as well. Proceeded in death by her parents and sister Patricia Burgess.

Virginia’s wishes were to not have services.

    Mom, Thanks for all that you have been to me and Kyle, especially these past few years. You will always be a presence in our home. We are thinking of you as we pull out the Christmas decorations.. the NutCrackers you gave to Kyle, the glittery stockings… Sometimes it was the little things that made a big difference. We miss you.
    Love, Janell

    My dear Aunt-
    You made a difference in my life. I remember you hugging me as my mother was dying and telling me to be strong and become the woman she meant to raise. I will always remember that. Thank you.
    May God bring peace to the family grieving. What a joyous day it must have been in heaven when she reunited with parents and sister and others passed on. I know my Mom cherished her sister and the memories I have of my aunt will now be bitter sweet. Thanks for the memories. Another piece of my heart is gone but it will be whole again someday. The little things will always whisper the memory of those passed on.
