Virginia Lee Tyler

April 25, 1929 - November 23, 2017

Virginia Lee Tyler, age 88, died peacefully on November 23, 2017 at Trinity Retirement Villas in Nashville, NC.

She was born on April 25, 1929 to the late Walker and Annie Overstreet Tyler in Halifax County. Virginia was a plain, simple, uncomplicated person and a devoted caregiver to her mother after her father died. She was content with what she had and didn’t believe in spending money for what she didn’t need. She did not watch television; she did not go to movies; and the only book she read was the Holy Bible. She did, however, enjoy “Hillbilly” music on occasion. She treasured “quietness and peace” during which she could meditate on the goodness of God and commune with her “Dear, Sweet Jesus”.

Other than her mother and father, Virginia is preceded in death by her sister, Rosa Elizabeth Tyler, her brother, Robert Earle “Joe” Tyler, two half-sisters, Mildred Moore Osborne and Dorothy Moore King and her beloved dog, Blackie. She is survived by her very special friend, Martha Morris of Enfield, NC.

A special thanks and appreciation are extended to the staff and residents of Trinity Retirement Villas who provided Virginia with unsurpassed love and care for almost 20 years.

A Funeral Service will be held Sunday, November 26, 2017 at 3:00PM at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Enfield, NC with Rev. Alvin Davis, officiating. A burial will follow at Elmwood Cemetery.
