Mrs. Virginia Elizabeth "Tia" Kling, 82, formerly of Greensboro, died Tuesday, March 29, 2017 at her daughter's home in Winston-Salem.
A service to celebrate her life will be held Saturday at two o'clock in the afternoon at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church Chapel, where she was a member. Inurnment will follow in the church columbarium.
Virginia was born in 1934 in Fitchburg, MA, the daughter of Joseph Paine and Vieno Liloiva Paine.
Virginia was employed by the Cochran Insurance Agency in Fitchburg, MA and later at Lorillard Tobacco in Greensboro where she was the receptionist. She would best be remembered as the life of the workplace, always having fun with whomever was around her. Her strong, determined and courageous character combined with her great sense of humor made Virginia a very special person who was easily loved by all who were lucky enough to meet her. Her humor continued even in her declining health, never complaining, but always finding light in any situation. Virginia enjoyed watching her "shows", Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and Criminal Minds. Most of all Virginia enjoyed spending time and taking care of her family.
In addition to her parents, Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, Siegfried, and her sister and brother in law, Betty and Vincent Cefole.
Surviving are her children, Heidi Wicker of Winston-Salem and Walter Kling of Greensboro; brother, Donald Paine of Fitchburg, MA; grandson, Brannon Kling of Greensboro; and many extended family members, all of whom she loved dearly.
The family would like to say a special thank-you to niece, Robin Clinard, and neighbor Jan Branon for their loving help and support during Virginia's decline in health.
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions in Virginia's name be made to Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home, 101 Hospice Lane, Winston-Salem, NC 27103.
