Virginia R. Wrenn, 92 formerly of Cottage Street in Claremont, NH, died Sunday (Aug. 5, 2018) at Cedar Hill Healthcare Center in Windsor, VT.
Virginia was born in Claremont, NH, on October 25, 1925, the daughter of Harry and Vera E.R. (Atwood) Blake. She had been employed in the payroll department by Sullivan Machinery in Claremont, NH. On December 29, 1951 she married John P. Wrenn. They had celebrated their 50th Anniversary prior to John’s death on March 5, 2002. In the mid 50’s they moved to Franklin, PA, where she was active in hospital volunteerism. Virginia was president of the Hospital Auxiliary and served on the hospital board of directors. Prior to returning to Claremont in 1984, they resided in Conneaut, OH, on Lake Erie for 18 years. Virginia was a strong woman who inspired respect and admiration in all who came in contact with her. She overcame the effects of a debilitating stroke with her fortitude and sense of humor. No longer able to write with her right hand, she simply taught herself to use her left. Her passion for jigsaw puzzles was not to be diminished by her disability. She was always cheerful, even when there was not much to cheer about, with a ready smile, a glint in her eye, an infectious laugh and a keen interest in all those around her. Despite her increasing frailties, she enjoyed each and other day without complaint. After a visit with Virginia, one always felt better.
Members of her family include a sister-in-law, Mary Bresnahan, Methuen, MA, and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by a sister, Evelenna Gifford.
There will be no visiting hours. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday (Aug. 9) in Union Cemetery with the Rev. Arockia Antony, officiating.
Virginia forever appreciated the passionate care and home provided by the staff and administration of Cedar Hill Nursing Home.
