Virginia Carolyn Walsh

Virginia Fields Walsh, 89, took her heavenly flight to be with her Lord and Savior late this past Sunday afternoon. 

Virginia, better known as “Ginny” was loved by all who knew her and brought much joy into everyone’s life. Her smile and humor are best described by the verse, a merry heart doeth good like a medicine, Proverbs 17:22. Ginny retired from the public school system serving the special needs children of Royal Oaks, Mich. in 1989. She served on the Board of Elections for many years. She was an active member and faithful servant at New Life Church in Hayesville. The love of her life was serving God’s people with food, fellowship,and friendship. 

She was reunited in heaven with her husband, Lorne Walsh; her son, David J. Walsh; her sister, Dorothy DeLong, her brother, Edmund Fields; her sister, Patsy Satterfield and many more precious loved ones. 

She is survived by her sons, Michael and Daniel Walsh; her grandchildren, with whom she shared many a treasured moment Matt (Maleita), Amy (Dan), Mark and Adam; Jason (Jess), John (Jenn), Sara (Ted), R.J. (Jenna) and Katie (Edward); and Nikki (Tim), Amanda (Rick) and Jeremiah. Ginny counted it a blessing to witness the birth and lives of 21 great-grandchildren. She lived her life in a way that culminated with a testimony, Her children arise and call her blessed, Proverbs 31:28a). 

Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 at New Life Church in Hayesville The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 at New Life Church, 34 Sunrise Place, Hayesville, NC 28904, officiated by Pastor Greg Carroll. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: New Life Church to further the advancement of the gospel of Christ. 

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints, Psalm 116:15 reminds us all how most precious she is to the Lord, but she was precious to all of us. 

Someday you will hear or read that “Ginny” is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it! I shall be more alive than I am now. I have just changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.
