Virginia Myers

August 4, 1922 –
 July 27, 2022

Obituary

Born August 4, 1922 in Arjay, Kentucky to A.D. and Anna Meadows, she lived in Kentucky, Florida, Mississippi, Washington D.C., Indiana, and Texas. Virginia spent her
childhood in Harlan, Kentucky with her parents and two brothers, Wallace and Wilbur. The family had a candy company business where Virginia was in charge of quality control, testing
one candy bar a day. Virginia attended Bowling Green College until helping move her parents to Florida, a better climate for her ailing father.

In Boca Raton, Virginia worked as the secretary to the flight surgeon at the Boca Raton Army Air Field, a World War II United States Army Air Forces airfield known as the only training for the then new and secret technology of radar. There, Virginia met her husband, Joseph M. Myers, who was serving in the Army Air Force. The young couple finished their service and moved to Laurel, Mississippi. They then moved to Washington D.C. where Joseph finished law school while training as an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Virginia continued her career working as secretary for the F.B.I. director, J. Edgar Hoover. They started their family in 1947 with the birth of their first daughter, Barbara, born in Hollywood, Florida. Their second daughter, Joanne, was born two years later in Washington D.C. The career in the F.B.I. took the couple and their young family to live in many places. Joseph was assigned to the Fort Worth office of the F.B.I. and they settled in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas in 1955 where their third daughter, Brenda, was born. With busy careers and raising a family, Joe and Virginia still enjoyed traveling extensively.

Virginia continued working in security operations at a global aerospace company while raising their three daughters. Also talented in designing and sewing, Virginia enjoyed sewing for
her daughters. As her children grew, Virginia began collecting dolls, a passion she had as a child. The passion became an important interest and business as she began to design and sew doll
clothes. Her creations are cherished by doll collectors at home and abroad. Through her interest, she became active in various groups and a member of doll clubs where she found many friends,
whom she cherished. Virginia and her daughters traveled extensively attending gatherings of her like-minded friends.

Having passed away one week shy of her one hundredth (100) birthday, Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, husband of fifty-nine (59), Joseph Michael Myers
(2016), daughter, Joanne Renee Myers (2015), and daughter, Barbara Lee Dacy (2016) (David). Virginia is survived by daughter, Brenda J. Myers, granddaughter, Erin Dacy Boles (Ben),
granddaughter, Brooke Myers Dacy, great granddaughters, Baylee Vasquez, Ansley Boles, Avery Vasquez, and Jillian Boles.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Virginia’s 100th birthday, August 4, 2022. She will be interred at a later date with her husband at Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Virginia.

    I am so glad I got to know Virginia through our shared love of Sasha dolls. It was so much fun to see her and Brenda every year at the Sasha Festival and to share fun times. Virginia was a classy lady in every sense of the word. She was well loved in the Sasha community and will be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences to Brenda and the rest of the family. May your many wonderful memories bring a smile during the sadness.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
