Virginia (Jinny) Greer Buskell of Abingdon, Virginia went to be with her loving Savior on May 23, 2009, at the age of 88 following a long illness. Jinny was preceded in death by her dear husband, Aubrey (Dutch) Buskell, her mother, Myrtle Greer, her father, Carl Greer, her sister, Andre, and brothers, Carl and Roscoe Greer, and her close cousin, Vada Greer Sauls. Jinny is survived by her son, Carl Sydney Buskell and also (and notably) her special and attentive cousin, Charlotte Necessary, several other cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as many dear friends, including Kelly and Jan Buskell and Kellena Meadows. Jinny was a loving mother, who adored her only child and had cared tirelessly for her husband, Dutch, for 18 years (following his stroke) till his death.
Jinny was devoted to her Lord Jesus and was a member of Pilgrim Baptist Church, attending regularly till she was no longer able to do so. She is warmly remembered as reading her Bible daily with the aid of a magnifying glass till a recent downturn in her already compromised health occurred.
Jinny was raised in Dante, Virginia and had wonderful memories of her childhood, her bustling hometown and various citizens, the Deaconesses of her childhood church, her family, friends and travels. She had a dazzling smile, a warm heart, a clear sense of right, and a marvelous sense of humor.
Jinny had been active in the Eastern Star for many years and served as Worthy Matron. She enjoyed crafts of various sorts, gardening, reading, and was a skilled quilter. Jinny fondly recounted her first encounter with crafts " the piecing together and sewing of a pretty black dress for her mother" all accomplished through her love and determination, as well as by the guidance of her church's Deaconesses.
