Virginia was preceded in death by her husband Clyde William Lefler; daughter-in-law Connie Lefler; father Emerson Eldridge Harmon and mother Florence Harmon; brother Louis Harmon; sister Velta Harmon; sister Esther Harmon and sister Isabella Harmon.

Virginia was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, teacher and homemaker. She found her passion for teaching a one room school house. She dearly treasured the gift of her family and could always find room for one more at the table as the family grew. A charter member for over 57 years at First Baptist Church of Oakville, her faith was most important to her beyond family and teaching. She had an abiding faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Special thanks to her Caregiving Angels - Misty, Tami, Virginia, Iris and Victoria for all the love and care over the last two years.
