Virginia was born on June 10, 1932 in Lincoln County, TN to the late George Presley and Lena Mae Fowler. She and Bill were married December 30, 1950. After working at Elk Cotton Mill where she met Bill, she became a bookkeeper and was employed by Reese Motors, Kraft Foods, and Builders Supply in Fayetteville and Fowler Auction in Toney, AL. Later in life she was an entrepreneur who owned “Virginia’s Boutique” from 1988-1997. The boutique was known in Lincoln County and surrounding areas for providing elegant fashion and accessories to our community. Virginia was also a longstanding member of Fayetteville First Baptist Church since 1959. She enjoyed making quilts, gardening, sharing cuttings and bulbs with anyone willing to take them, and doing yard work especially riding on her zero turn lawnmower. Most of all, she loved people and always met them with a smile. Virginia passed this life on May 25, 2021, surrounded by her family.
