Virginia, whose favorite motto was “One day at a time, sweet Jesus”, was a homemaker and a master of all trades. She loved to fish and camp in Southern Indiana and Wisconsin. A lady who never had idle hands, she enjoyed all kinds of crafts, including: crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, cooking, working in her garden and canning the fruits of her labor.

She was a member of the Plymouth Wesleyan Church for over 40 years, where she enjoyed putting up decorations at Christmas time.

Virginia’s proudest achievement was the raising of her and Chester’s children: DeVere (Judy) Abair of Plymouth, Judith (Steve) Hessler of Richland, IN, Garry (Barbara) Abair of Newnan, GA, Alan Abair of Plymouth, Roger Abair of Wedowee, AL and Jacqueline (Les) Trump of Plymouth.

She is also survived by 19 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, and her family is still growing. Two sisters: Viola Capron and Phyllis (Michael) Corbridge, both of Bremen and a brother, Russell L. Harner of Bremen.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband, a son: Larry

Abair, three brothers: Robert, John and William Harner and a sister: Evelyn Litchfield.
