VIRGINIA FRANCES BASHARA WOODSIDE, born in Houston, Texas on the 22nd of August 1920, to one of Texas' first oil pioneer families passed away on the 12th of February 2010.

A second generation Houstonian, she often shared fond memories of growing up in historic Courtlandt Place, special times at Lamar High School, the University of Texas at Austin and her adventurous travels.

Virginia will be remembered as a devoted mother who dedicated her life to her three daughters. She was truly a kind and loving lady who was admired for her extraordinary beauty, outstanding character, deep faith and steadfast courage. She will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched. Virginia always displayed a warm smile, a wonderful sense of humor, and a fun-loving way about her that was contagious. She filled a room with happiness through her caring spirit, devotion to family and love of friends. A gracious lady in every way, her integrity, perseverance and selflessness were the foundations of her life.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Wadeha Bashara; brother, Frank Bashara; sisters Dorothy Prescott, Nell Saad and Louise Fadal and daughter, Ginger Honefenger.

She is survived by her daughters Cindy Vaughan and husband, Richard; and Pam Cohan and husband, Patrick and their son, Jaan; and many nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank caregivers Mary Coleman, Vanessa Lewis and Alma Lyons for their devoted and loving care.

Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from six until eight o'clock in the evening on Monday, the 15th of February, at Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston. A memorial service is to be conducted at two o'clock in the afternoon on Tuesday, the 16th of February, at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, 717 Sage Road in Houston, where the Reverend Martin J. Bastian, Associate Rector, is to officiate.

Prior to the memorial service, the family will have gathered for a private graveside and interment service at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery.
