She was the mother four children, Patricia Anne, Woodrow Alma, Jr, Virginia Dee and James Leroy. Her husband died Sep 13, 1971 in Twin Falls, Idaho. Mother was a very talented person and was very artistic. She could see a little girls dress in the store and go home and make it without any pattern. She liked to go fishing and camping with her husband. We have many memories of hunting asparagus along the ditch banks and watching for pheasants during pheasant season. She loved to be in the mountains. Mother had a green thumb and her flowers were always beautiful. Mom was always with dad. She worked hard when they were living on the farm helping with many chores. After Mom and Dad moved to Twin Falls she began catering weddings. I think the first wedding cake she made was for our cousins. She taught herself how to decorate cakes and made the cake decorations, table clothes and other decorations that she needed. She was probably the first wedding caterer in Twin Falls and catered weddings from Burley to Sun Valley and points west. Even sending cakes to Hawaii and Japan. It was difficult for her after Woodrow died, but with Dee's help she continued to run her catering business. She is survived by her brother, Donald Buck; her children, Patricia Anne Decker, Virginia Dee Gibson (Sam), and James LeRoy Bingham (Marti) She has many descendants, 16 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren and 6 great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Woodrow; her son, Woodrow Alma, Jr.; as well as her brothers, Darald Buck and Melvin Buck. She will always be remembered with love and affection. A celebration of Virginia's life will be held as a graveside service on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 12:30pm at the Pleasantview Cemetery in Burley with Bishop Gary Moffitt conducting. Services are under the direction of White Mortuary, Chapel by the Park, Twin Falls.
