May 13, 1948 - December 5, 2021
Virginia Marie Rose Ring, age 73, passed away the morning of December 5, 2021 at Alleghany Health in Sparta, NC. She was born May 13, 1948 in Queens, NY to the late Joseph Millard and Constance Griffiths Rose. She is survived by two daughters, Victoria Downer and husband Dean, and Jo-Ellen Jacobus and husband William; nine grandchildren, Christine Wagner and husband Benjamin, Nicolas Maddux, Anthony Masucci and wife Erin, Micheal Jacobus and wife Joy, Nicole Jacobus, Elizabeth Jacobus, Tyler Downer, Larissa Downer, and Piper Downer; great-grandchildren, Haven Maddux, Hazel Maddux, and Maverick Maddux, Hayden Masucci, Hadley Masucci, Mikayla Jacobus, and Maggie Jacobus; one brother, James Rose and wife Jan Mercer Rose. Virginia held two associate degrees, one in animal science and one in agricultural science. She also had a CNA certification. Virginia was a true lover of animals and all things nature. There were many times where she saved poor little squirrels and other animals, and nursed them back to health. She loved her pets with all her heart. Virginia also had a very green thumb, giving plants life with her passion for gardening. Her love and passion for animals and gardening will be missed here on earth, but will be remembered forever and it will live out in our hearts. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. The family would like to extend special thanks to family, friends, and the community for their support and prayers during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Twin Oaks Veterinary Animal Shelter, 2970 US Hwy 21 N., Sparta, NC 28675; Phone number: 336-372-8744.
