The Blessings of her Church family, Rev. Jimerson & The Entire Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church
Family of Lutherville, GA. Rev Felton James & The Entire Friendship Baptist Church Family of
Newnan GA. All Members of The Early Morning Worship & Prayer Group.
Through her years of Serving & Laboring, Virginia was a committed God Fearing Woman. She began
giving of herself unselfishly to others as she obeyed the commandments of the Lord to go "Feed His
Sheep". In doing so, she began her journey as a Laborer and Servant while a Faithful and Dedicated
member of the Friendship Baptist Church of Newnan GA under the leadership of Pastor FeltonJames. Her Outreach to the Sick and Shut-in continued as she established her Non Profit
Organization, "Mother's Making A Difference". This was her way of giving more of herself
while helping other's who were beginning their call to the Ministry of the Gospel by Prayer
Breakfasts and Conferences designed to impart, share and give Love to and amongst All
people. During her early years of Service She was led to the Pinetree Park Baptist Church of
Riverdale GA. In her call to Minister, she journeyed on and was ordained by Bishop Charles
McCree at the Light of Faith Outreach Ministries Church of Jonesboro GA. She continued her
calling as she was led to The Divine Faith Outreach Ministries under the Leadership of
Apostle Sonnet Ford-Grant in Griffin GA. As she grew stronger in her calling and in her Faith,
she desired to go back " Home" where she would conclude her and finish her course of
Serving & Laboring at the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church under the direction and
leadership of Rev. Jimerson.

Virginia was employed throughout her years at the Nylco Plant of Newnan GA, Owens
Corning of Fairburn GA, Bonanza Steakhouse of Newnan GA, Sprayberry's BBQ of Newnan
GA, Precious One Pre School of Union City GA, Helping Hands Day Care of Fairburn GA, Kay's
Take Out of Newnan GA, Target of Morrow GA, & JT's Wings and More of East Point GA.
She loved to give love and everyone that she met was sure to love her. Her most precious
Gift was that of Baking Cakes where she established her own Cake Business, Divine Cakes
and known to many as " The Cake Lady". As she has earned her Wings and Rejoicing in
Heaven, she has truly left footprints of Unconditional Love to All that she has Loved, Raised,
Supported & Nurtured. May she Rest In Heaven and continue to be an Angel to us All.
