Virginia Stebbins, 84, passed away Monday, April 6, 2020. She resided at the Enumclaw Health and Rehabilitation Center, in Enumclaw, Washington.

Virginia was born on February, 10, 1936 in Copalis Beach, WA. Virginia was preceded in death by her mother; Beatrice Virginia (Jones) Robinson; father, George Ivo Gillem; beloved husband, Clair C.

Virginia was a creative and skilled homemaker, and an excellent bookkeeper. Life was never dull when she was around. Virginia was adventuresome, loved to travel, and strived to learn new things. Some of her many adventures included riding in a hot air balloon, traveling alone across country in her Ford Explorer (without a working gas gauge or cell phone), and competing in an accordion players convention in New Hampshire. While living in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, Virginia taught Sunday School at the Catholic Church. To provide care for her beloved son Daniel, Virginia sought and completed training to enable her to administer home dialysis to him, in his time of need. Virginia was a certified Dental Hygienist. She was a self-taught accordion player, loved to entertain people, and enjoyed trail hiking and biking.

May Virginia rest in peace with her husband Clair. Many thanks to the staff of CHI Franciscan Hospice-Tacoma, and Enumclaw Health and Rehabilitation Center for their loving care and extraordinary kindness to Virginia and her family.

Prayers to your families for the peace and comfort only God can give. We loved Virginia and had some great times together. She was like an angel that showed up to help without her knowing any help was needed. She had to have been in tune with God is all I could say. So sad at this time that funerals have got to be put on hold because of the stay at home rule. She is now home with Jesus, you can take comfort in that.
