August 4, 1922 - July 27, 2022
Born August 4, 1922 in Arjay, Kentucky to A.D. and Anna Meadows, she lived in Kentucky, Florida, Mississippi, Washington D.C., Indiana, and Texas. Virginia spent her
childhood in Harlan, Kentucky with her parents and two brothers, Wallace and Wilbur. The family had a candy company business where Virginia was in charge of quality control, testing
one candy bar a day. Virginia attended Bowling Green College until helping move her parents to Florida, a better climate for her ailing father.
In Boca Raton, Virginia worked as the secretary to the flight surgeon at the Boca Raton Army Air Field, a World War II United States Army Air Forces airfield known as the only training for the then new and secret technology of radar. There, Virginia met her husband, Joseph M. Myers, who was serving in the Army Air Force. The young couple finished their service and moved to Laurel, Mississippi. They then moved to Washington D.C. where Joseph finished law school while training as an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Virginia continued her career working as secretary for the F.B.I. director, J. Edgar Hoover. They started their family in 1947 with the birth of their first daughter, Barbara, born in Hollywood, Florida. Their second daughter, Joanne, was born two years later in Washington D.C. The career in the F.B.I. took the couple and their young family to live in many places. Joseph was assigned to the Fort Worth office of the F.B.I. and they settled in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas in 1955 where their third daughter, Brenda, was born. With busy careers and raising a family, Joe and Virginia still enjoyed traveling extensively.
Virginia continued working in security operations at a global aerospace company while raising their three daughters. Also talented in designing and sewing, Virginia enjoyed sewing for
her daughters. As her children grew, Virginia began collecting dolls, a passion she had as a child. The passion became an important interest and business as she began to design and sew doll
clothes. Her creations are cherished by doll collectors at home and abroad. Through her interest, she became active in various groups and a member of doll clubs where she found many friends,
whom she cherished. Virginia and her daughters traveled extensively attending gatherings of her like-minded friends.
Having passed away one week shy of her one hundredth (100) birthday, Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, husband of fifty-nine (59), Joseph Michael Myers
(2016), daughter, Joanne Renee Myers (2015), and daughter, Barbara Lee Dacy (2016) (David). Virginia is survived by daughter, Brenda J. Myers, granddaughter, Erin Dacy Boles (Ben),
granddaughter, Brooke Myers Dacy, great granddaughters, Baylee Vasquez, Ansley Boles, Avery Vasquez, and Jillian Boles.
