  1. Always enjoyed seeing Mrs. Faurote the few times I returned to the Baptist Church. Definitely a memory from growing up in Healing Springs. Another Bath County icon has passed. Hugs to all.

    • Virginia worked with my mom whose name was also Virgina for the Ellis’s for years. They were close and good friends. Virginia was well liked and she will be sadly missed. Prayers.

  2. Sympathy and prayers for the family…

  3. Sorry to hear of Virginia, she was a good person & a friend to my Mom.
