Virginia (Ginn) Maxine Fuller was born Sept. 2, 1917 to Clarence and Mabel (Lord) Cudaback in McCool Junction. She lived in York County for 101 years, spending most of her years in McCool Junction and then making the big move north to York to live in Willowbrook Assisted Living and Hearthstone Nursing Home. She passed away on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Hearthstone. She received great care from the staff at Willowbrook, Hearthstone Nursing staff and Tabitha Hospice staff. Her family is so thankful for the excellent care she received.
Virginia married Kenneth Calvin Fuller when she was 18. They raised two boys, Norman Keith and Danny Lee. Virginia was an excellent cook and used her skills in the school kitchen and at a restaurant downtown in McCool. Kenneth “Bub” and Virginia purchased the Dairy Queen where Kerry’s Restaurant is currently located. They loved working there together. Virginia was one busy woman, making everything from scratch. Her cinnamon rolls were amazing. After Bub’s death, Virginia sold the Dairy Queen and worked at McCool Fertilizer, where they treated her like family. She cooked the daily noon meal for the employees there. She loved this job as they all appreciated her so much.
Virginia enjoyed being outdoors. She enjoyed mowing and planting flowers. Her lot was half a city block and she was so proud of it. The highway ran by her place so she wanted it to look nice. She also loved to fish. She would travel to Ogallala to visit her family and fish for walleye at Lake McConaughy and then fry the fish for them.
Virginia was very active in the community. She thought of everyone in McCool as friends. She always found the good in people, and she never complained about anything! She was a very active member of The United Methodist Church in McCool Junction throughout her life.
Virginia is survived by her four grandchildren, Doug (Linda) Fuller of Ogallala, Deb Miller of Centennial, Colo., Tish (Mark) Roland of Cape Coral, Fla. and Danell (Dom) Ricciardella of Fairfax, Va.; six great-grandchildren, numerous family members and friends. Special friends, Sylvia and Dave Tyser were also considered as family by Ginn and spent lots of time with her at Hearthstone.
A memorial service will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at 10 a.m. at the United Methodist Church in McCool Junction. She will be buried beside Bub and her two sons in the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests giving a memorial to the United Methodist Church of McCool in Virginia’s name.
