Virginia O'Brien McGee, 89, passed away on Saturday, February 4, 2017. She entered this world on August 7, 1927, and was the daughter of the late Paul E. Rickman and Mollie Lewis Rickman.

McGee, her son Michael O'Brien, daughter Shawn O'Brien Lance, and sister Paula Rickman Hawes. Virginia enjoyed a career with local industries as a Buyer and ultimately, Senior Purchasing Agent. She was held in great esteem by her peers in industry and the vendors with whom she worked.

The family would like to thank the staff and residents at Mountain Ridge Wellness and Rehab for the wonderful care and friendship over the past four years. Also a very heartfelt thank you to Virginia's special friends Martha and Nancy for being there for Virginia over many years. In agreement with her wishes, no services are planned.
