Miss Virginia: Always in our Hearts
The late Virginia Ogle, fondly known as “Miss Virginia” at our Houses, holds a special place in all of our hearts at Atlanta RMHC. She was by far one of the most dearly loved and dedicated volunteers to walk through the doors at our House near Egleston.
Dedicated beyond words, Miss Virginia spent over 23 years supporting our families. Her time at our House started at our original Atlanta Ronald McDonald House on Houston Mill Road where she would come to visit as a part of the Atlanta Junior League. She then started to come every week to watch the House and relieve our House Manager, Kay, during the afternoons. As she grew older, Miss Virginia loved to write all of our thank you notes for every donation that came through our doors. Every Wednesday you could find her at her desk with her mini cooler of snacks, writing notes, and chatting with everyone at the House.
Sadly, this past year, Miss Virginia passed away at the age of 83. Throughout her time and legacy at ARMHC she built strong and lasting relationships and took true interest in peoples’ lives and stories. She will always be remembered for her great sense of humor and love for her little dog, her daily glass of wine, Auburn football, and all of our families at ARMHC.
We are forever grateful to have had Miss Virginia a part of the ARMHC family for such a large portion of her life. As described by our Volunteer Services Manager, Cat Lewis, Miss Virginia was “pure gold” and continuous to be greatly missed by all.
