THOMAS, Virginia L., age 78, of Romulus, passed March 05, 2023 with her family at her side. Beloved wife of Jimmy. Loving mother of Beverly (Steve) Jones and the late Vicki Jean Scharp. Dear grandma “GiGi” of Alley (Aaron) Green, Amanda (Scott) Flores and Evan O’Donnel and great grandmother “GiGi” of Ashton, Aria, Athena, Jayda, Scarlett and Kirk.

She is survived by siblings Betty (Jerry) Hankins, Eugene Wright, Phyllis (Herman) Clements and Linda Faye (Bob) Marsh. She was preceded in death by her mother Phyllis Wright, siblings Rachel (Glen) Miller, Hattie Null, Donnie Wright, Douglas Wright, Carl Jr. (Diane) Wright, Jimmy Roger Wright, Nancy Louis Wright, James “Pete” Wright, Larry Wright and Shirley Marie Wright and her sister-in-law Louise Wright.  

Virginia, Ginny, Sweetheart, mom, grandma, Grandma Gigi, some of the many well-known names of an amazing woman. Virginia was a one-of-a-kind caring, loving helpful, and generous person. No one left her table hungry, and everyone was always invited. She was a sweetheart with a green thumb and an amazing ability to cook the best homemade meals. She whole heartedly believed in everything could be preserved and canned everything they grew in the garden. She spent hours in the sun and many miles on the road with her loving husband who adored her more than life itself. She raised two amazing daughters and took care of them always and in return was cared for by her surviving daughter Beverly. Virginia enjoyed nothing more than seeing smiles on people faces. She strived to please everyone and went out of her way to make sure no one ever was forgotten. She spent a lot of time with her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and those she cherished. She loved family celebrations and get togethers having everyone in one place. She spent 58 amazing, dedicated years with her beloved husband Jimmy. She loved the ocean her toes in the sand and relaxing under the sun on any beach. She was an amazing wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. She was an unselfish soul who gave her all to those around her. She was a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen and shared words of wisdom. She will always be remembered as a person you could go to for any help at all and she would welcome you with open arms.  She will never be forgotten, she will always be missed, on the days we have questions, the days we need advice, and the holidays when a recipe is needed. Virginia has this amazing ability to leave a mark on your heart that no one could ever possibly forget. In the days moving forward we remember her as an angel on earth, who is now at peace and called home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


  • Virginia was one of the sweetest ladies I've ever known. I didn't spend a lot of time with her; but the time I did spend with her I could see that she was very special. I will pray that God will Comfort all the hearts of those who loved her and will miss her in the days to come. But she wouldn't want one of you to be sad. Keep good memories close to your heart.
