Virginia was born October 29, 1946, in Marlin, TX, to Ruby Wornat and Richard Taylor. She attended LaVega ISD. Ginny married the love of her life, Bobby Dehart on July 30, 1971. She loved to fish (she just had to throw in her line and a fish was caught), play the slot machines, dominoes and computer games, going to garage sales, cooking, dancing and she loved to write poetry. Her best laughs were to be able to pull a fast one on family, friends, and in general anyone. She loved to laugh and make others do the same. One favorite memory was for her and Bobby to take the grandchildren camping at TP&L Lake. Picking blackberries and making sure they had full buckets, they loved seeing the kids have purple faces after eating all the berries. She loved listening to gospel music and had many favorite songs. Ginny loved to bar tend and she last owned Blueberry Hill in Bellmead where she was an excellent host and made many friends. She was soft hearted and never met a stranger and she would help anyone. She was one tough cookie and fought till the end.
