Virginia Agnes "Aggie" Belfield
Saturday, October 24, 2009
Virginia Agnes "Aggie" Belfield, 79, of Mentor, died Oct. 22, 2009, at her home in Mentor.
Born July 18, 1930, in Vandergrift, Pa., she had lived in Sebring, Fla., and Martins Ferry, before moving to Mentor three years ago.
Aggie graduated from Bellaire/St. John High School in Bellaire. After graduation, she worked at Ohio Bell as a service representative and later at Prudential Insurance Company in Martins Ferry.
She was an active member of St. Mary Church while in Martins Ferry and still had many friends there. She received her degree in education from Spalding College in Louisville, Ky., serving as registrar there for seven years. After graduation from Spalding College, she returned to Martins Ferry to care for her aging parents and worked for the Social Security Office in Wheeling, W.Va. She retired from that office in 1995 and moved to Sebring, Fla., to be with family. While in Florida, she was a member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Avon Park. She was also a Hospice volunteer there. Her recent illness prompted her to move to Mentor to be with family and also to be near the doctors and hospital she needed for her care. She was also a member of St. Gabriel Church in Concord Township.
Survivors are her brother, Rev. John Belfield; sisters, Rita Whitlatch and Mary L. (Harold) Christmyer; closest friend, Chris Jobson; and nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John F. and Loretta F. Belfield; and brother-in-law, Ray Whitlatch.
A memorial Mass will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009, at St. Gabriel Church, 9925 Johnnycake Ridge Road, Concord Township. Interment will be immediately following the Mass at All Souls Cemetery in Chardon Township.
