Virginia Belle “Andrews” Jacobs, 89 years, 4 months, 13 days old, of Ava, Missouri, passed away on December 10, 2018 at Heart of the Ozarks, Ava, MO.

Virginia was born July 28, 1929 in Coldsprings, MO. to Howard and Lola (Upshaw) Proctor. 

On February 4, 1947 Virginia and Vernie David Andrews were united in marriage in Ava, MO and were blessed with two sons.  

Virginia was a member of Seminole Baptist Church in Springfield, MO. In 1954 at the age of 25, Virginia was born again in the spirit of the Lord and was baptized in Portland, Oregon.  She enjoyed crocheting baby blankets for Mercy Hospital where she volunteered much of her time over the last twenty years. She loved her family very much and they were her joy. She had a yearly garden that she maintained, and canned the fruits of her labor, as well as flowers in her flower garden. Virginia also enjoyed writing and several of her stories were published. Her real blessing was when she could share her faith in the Lord Jesus with others.
