Virginia May Hyatt passed away on April 24th at the age of 92 in Tacoma, Wa. Virginia was born in Lackawanna, New York on March 17th, 1927,(St. Pactrick's Day) to Charles and Elsie Weed. Mom was 10 years old before she realized that all that singing, drinking and dancing was not for her birthday. They came to Washington State when mom was 11 months old and has been a life long resident of Tacoma.

She is preceded in death by her husband of nearly 72 years, William, her parents, four brother's, Dan, Chuck, Jack, Henry and two sisters, Lillian, Sharon, Grandson Brett, and several nieces and nephew's.  She is survived by her children Chris Hildebran, son's Bill (Sally), James (Gloria), sister Margie, four grandchildren, and three great grandchildren and many nieces and nephew's.

 Mom was the rock of our family, as she was a stay at home mom, who was there for us kids in every aspect of life. Be it PTA at school, den master of cub, girl and boy scouts, baseball mom, swim meet mom, or any other part of growing up. She was always there to cheer us on when we soared or lent a shoulder to cry on when we failed, her love was never wavering. Together with Dad, we enjoyed camping, boating, fishing,(dad used to complain that she always caught the first fish in every boat they owned! Of course dad always baited her hooks, so naturally she was always fishing before dad!) snowmobiling, the beach, and being with family and friends.

She was loved by many, and will be missed by all who ever came across her path. Mom NEVER met a stranger! Rest in peace mom. We love you!

I just want to say thank you for everything you ever did for me and the family. From helping to raise me as a kid and for sharing your best practices on relationships in life, you were always there for me when I needed it and you always made me feel so loved when I was in your presence. From playing baseball in your backyard, to eating cheese and cheez-it’s on your floor watching PBS, to you reading books to me, to teaching me how to do math without a calculator, to all the egg hunts, to always being at every one of my sporting events that you could be, to loving Kristin and our boys and everything in between, you taught me how to love, live and laugh and for that, I am forever grateful. I will miss you every day and a piece of me left when you left us, but I am so glad to know that a large part of the man I am today is because of what I learned from you and Grandpa. I was beyond blessed to have you both as my grandparents and I will do my best to make you both proud each and every day.

Rest In Peace Grandma and I hope you and Grandpa know how much you were loved. I love you this much (arms open as wide as possible)

Grandma, you and I shared a special bond with me being the only granddaughter AND being born on your birthday. I have so many memories of tea parties on the deck, vacations at the beach, clam digging (with the reward of freshly made clam chowder when we returned), camping, snowmobiling, making cookies, and your amazing flair for storytelling. I certainly admit to being selfish as I wish you were still here with me... but I know you missed Grandpa. You’re now rejoicing with all those that we’ve lost and Heaven has gained a mighty angel in you. I love you Grandma.

Mom, you were always there for me, so it is going to be hard to imagine life without you. I know you wanted to be with Dad , your parents, brother's and sister's however I was not done with you here on Earth quite yet. I know these past few years have been hard on your body and mind, but I want you to know I loved having you for a Mother, any child would have, as how many children grew up around our family and called you mom. I want you to give Dad a big hug for me and tell him I love him and you as well. Thank you for being my friend, supporter and critic. I love you. Rest in peace, Bill
