Virginia Frances Mumford: April 25, 1929 – July 19, 2020

Born April 25, 1929 in Lyndon, Vt., the daughter of Francis Moulton and Gertrude Bugbee Moulton, Virginia died of natural causes on July 19, 2020.

Formally of St. Johns-bury, Vt., she resided with her oldest son, Milton Mumford, of Oak Harbor, Wash.

She was predeceased by her husband, George N Mumford, in 1967, and long-time companion Clifford Greenwood, in 2011.

She is survived by her last remaining sibling, Lynn Moulton, of Rochester, N.H., and Englewood, Fla.; seven children, Milton Mumford, of Oak Harbor, Wash., Frances Douglas and her husband, Mark, of Concord, N.H., Stephen Mumford and his wife, Karen, of Cowpens, S.C., Walter Mumford and his wife, Mary-Jo, of New Haven, Vt., Leroy Mumford and his wife, Sandra, of Oxnard, Calif., George Mumford and his wife, Delores, of Anacortes, Wash., and Timothy Mumford and his wife, Gina, of Oak Harbor; along with 22 grandchildren; 36 great grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren who were named in a booklet of her family tree that was artfully created by her granddaughter, Kaylee Mumford, and presented to her at her 90th birthday party.

Auntie Ginny is also survived by several nieces and nephews and their families.

Widowed at the age of 37, Virginia became a single mom to her brood of seven children, got her driver’s license, learned to take care of her finances, and took classes to become a nurse’s aide. She worked at NVRH and two nursing homes located in St. Johnsbury.

After her retirement, summers were spent at Island Pond Campground. Hobbies included gardening, bowling and deer hunting in her earlier days and slowed down to knitting, reading, and attending the senior day at the casino for its buffet and a little game playing.

A memorial service for Virginia will be held at 1 p.m. Aug. 8, 2020 at Wallin Funeral Home in Oak Harbor, Wash. Graveside services will take place at a later date in St. Johnsbury, Vt.
