Virginia Davis Obituary- Remembering a Lively Soul and Paying Tribute to Her

Virginia Elaine Davis, 94, of Albert Lea, formerly of Clarks Grove, Minnesota, dἰed on Monday, January 16, 2023, at Thorne Crest Senior Living Community in Albert Lea.

Charles and Effie (Thompson) Peterson welcomed her on April 12, 1928, in Udolpho Township, Mower County, Minnesota. Virginia finished eighth grade in a one-room rural school and attended Blooming Prairie High School, where she received her diploma in 1946. After graduating, she worked as a telephone operator at Northwestern Bell in Austin.

She was baptized and confirmed in Rural Austin’s Red Oak Grove Lutheran Church. Virginia and George Davis were married on June 1 in a double ceremony at Red Oak Grove Lutheran Church that also included Dorothy and Allen Johnson, George’s sister. Arden, Roger, Kevin, and Carol were the children George and Virginia were blessed with. They lived in Clarks Grove after retiring from the Davis family farm in Newry Township in 1997.

Virginia has been a lifelong member of Red Oak Grove, taught Sunday school, held the office of WELCA president, and participated in the Rebekah Circle. She enjoyed helping at events like the Strawberry Festival, reading the Bible, welcoming people on Sunday mornings, and serving coffee alongside the Red Oak Grove women.
