Virginia Evelyn (Penney) Davis was born on July 6, 1949, in Massachusetts, to Albert Douglas Penney Sr. and Edith Alice Butler. Growing up, she enjoyed fishing and being with her siblings. Virginia was bi-costal living in California and Florida during her adult life. For more than 35 years Virginia was a bookkeeper and was a dedicated volunteer for her local Harley Davidson Motorcycle Club in Orange Park, Florida. She had a passion for riding and would enjoy road trips with her friends/club members. She would rather drive than fly so she could take in the beauty of the road while traveling to see family and friends.
Recently, Virginia relocated to Moreno Valley, California, to live with her son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Tracy, where they were in the process of remodeling their home. The day of Virginia’s passing her “She Shed” arrived. She was overjoyed watching/supervising the process of its placement; Virginia was going to make it her workshop. Virginia was known as a “Champion Remodeler." There was nothing that she couldn't accomplish when it came to home improvements. She had an eye for detail, which was one of her greatest pleasures in life. Another joy of hers was getting lost in a good book. Her family will continue the remodeling journey always keeping her in mind: “What would mom do?"
On April 30, 2019, Virginia passed away suddenly. Her loving family was with her during the transition. She will forever be loved, missed, and honored by her loved ones. Proceeding her in death are her parents; brother, Dougie; son, Steven; and grandson, Tyler. She is survived by her beloved son, Robert, and his wife, Tracy; grandchildren, Megan and Alonso Barajas, Gerrit Hodge and fiancé, Kristin Walker, Ashley Hodge, Samantha Hodge, and Aubrey Hodge; great-grandchildren, Arich Cline and Camila Barajas; siblings Pamela Tukey, J.C. “Bubba” Penney, and Betty Crockett; loving niece, Scherrill Hayes, and many other family members and dear friends.
