Birth: Mar. 19, 1929
King County
Washington, USA
Death: Feb. 3, 2011

Virginia Mae Blake, age 81, passed away at the Hospice House in Bellingham, WA on Thursday, February 3, 2011.

Ginna was born on March 19, 1929 in Seattle, WA, to Calvin and Frances (Cram) Brown. Living in Seattle most of her life, she moved to Birch Bay one year ago to be closer to family. She graduated from Hoquiam High School and worked many years as a bookkeeper.

She and her husband, Jack, were avid Husky football fans, never missing a home game in the 70's & 80's and going to a few Rose Bowls.

Ginna is preceded in death by her parents; her husbands, John Blake and Joseph Krofta, her sister, Donna McClusky; and her son, Curtis Krofta.

She is survived by her sister, Betty Degerstrom, of Seattle; children, Gary (Betsy) Krofta, of Attleboro, MA, Vincent Krofta, of Everett, and Russell (Patti) Krofta, of Birch Bay; five grandchildren: Alex, Ivy, Nigel, Joe and Katie; and stepchildren: John, Candance, Jeannine, Kelly, Cathy, Kevin, and Brian.

Many thanks to the staff of Stafholt, St. Joseph Hospital, Hospice House, and Birch Bay Haircare for the compassion and care they have shown Ginna and her family over the past months.

Virginia was laid to rest with her husband (Jack) of nearly 40 years at the Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, WA, followed by a celebration of her life with friends and family.
