In Loving Memory of a great mother-in-law:

Virginia Lee Austin passed away on April 14, 2011, at the Dardanelle Nursing Center, Dandanelle, Arkansas, after a long illness.

Virginia was born March 29, 1919 in Henderson Co, Tennessee, the daughter of James Robert McCormick and Flossie Ann McCall McCormick.

She was united in marriage to Conley Fay Austin on April 20, 1940 in Blytheville, Arkansas.

She was preceded in death by her parents, J.R. and Flossie McCormick; her husband, Fay Austin, her son, Edward Lee Austin; sisters, Mildred McCormick Wicker and Mary Pauline McCormick Hrabovsky; two brothers, Edward McCormick and Neal McCormick; one great-grandson, Christopher Stephen Austin; and one nephew, Tommy Hrabovsky.

She is also survived by 5 great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren, four nieces and three nephews.

Virginia was manager of the Blytheville Federal Credit Union for many years, retiring in 1981. After retirement she kept busy volunteering at her church and as a volunteer tax preparer for IRS. She accepted the Lord at an early age and was a longtime member of the Gospel Lighthouse Church, where she taught adult Bible class for many years.
