Zachry, two loving and caring daughters-in-love Linda and Laurie, five grandchildren, Clay Zachry (Hilary), Emily Kretz (John-Michael), Laura Lea Chalhoub (Anthony), Lindsey Bourland (Matt), Franklin "Zach" Zachry, seven great grandchildren, three nephews and a niece. Rev. Zachry was a Baptist minister beside whom Virginia served faithfully throughout his active ministry. Virginia worked full time until she and Zach moved to Dallas and settled in Presbyterian Village North. Prior to moving to Dallas Virginia worked in the library at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. Virginia was a devoted wife, loving mother, and a terrific grandmother. She was at least a fourth generation Baptist and a member of Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas at the time of her death. Virginia will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
