Virginia's Story

Text size

June 11, 1930—Sept. 8, 2015 Born in Wewoka, OK, on June 11, 1930, the second daughter of Thomas and Ruth Pittman, Virginia Lee Pittman Borsos grew up in Adamsville, WV. She attended Potomac State College and worked as a medical secretary. In 1956 she married the love of her life, Albert Borsos. Their children are Daniel (Drew Ann) Borsos of Nashville; Valerie (Fred) Picini of Fairfax, VA; and Laura (Stan) Moore of Decatur, AL. Grandchildren are Anna Borsos, Allison (Leroy) Flaten, Liz Picini, Glorianne Picini, Chris (Katie) Moore and Jon (Katlyn) Moore. Great grandchildren are Natalie Moore and Ava Moore. Her sisters are Margaret Blackwell and Mary Mieras. While her children were young, Virginia was a Cub Scout den mother, a Girl Scout troop leader and taught children’s Sunday School. Later she managed the office of a geological and environmental consulting firm. After retirement Virginia and Al spent nine years as Mission Service Corp construction coordinators in West Virginia. They planned and supervised construction of more than 50 Southern Baptist church buildings. Virginia’s love for Jesus was her motivation for a life of serving others. In 1997 Virginia and Al moved to Fairfield Glade, TN, where she volunteered with numerous social welfare and Gospel-spreading organizations. She often traveled and cooked with the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief kitchen. She loved to laugh and entertain. Family members knew that at key life events such as wedding rehearsals and baby showers she would produce a hilarious poem or song tailored for the occasion. She was an expert seamstress and quilter. And if she challenged you to a game of dominoes, you should prepare to be beaten. After a short battle with pancreatic cancer she joined Al in heaven on Tuesday morning, Sept. 8, 2015. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015, at Fairfield Glade Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Christian Women’s Job Corp (www.cwjcmiddletn.org/index.php/donate) or Cumberland House hospice (www.cumberlandhospice.com/?page_id=161). The family is grateful for the wonderful staff at Cumberland House hospice and Dr. Stephen Clark. Hood Funeral Home and Crematory, LLC (www.hoodfuneralhome.com) was in charge of the arrangements.
