Virginia Ruth (Morgan) Brill

March 29, 1924 ~ May 5, 2022 (age 98)

Obituary

Virginia was born March 29, 1924 in Dixon, IN to Veon and Glennie Morgan.  They had 4 children.  Her father died in her early childhood, and her mother re- married a widower, Delbert Carrier with 3 children of his own.   Even though it was the depression, he had a stable job with the Pennsylvania RR.  But to keep that job, the family, including 6 of their children, had to move to Terre Haute, IN.

 

There she met Ralph in the 6th grade.  They were married December 30, 1945.  Virginia graduated from Gerstmeyer High School in 1942.

 

Virginia worked as a secretary for Reuben Donnelly, then went to work in the trust department of what was then First National Bank.  After retiring she and Ralph volunteered for over 10 years in the chaplain’s office at Union Hospital. 

 

Virginia played the piano beautifully, though she never took a lesson.  She could play hymns by ear and she did that for Second Avenue EUB church for many years.  After that church closed its doors, they joined Maplewood Christian Church, and later were members of Terre Haute First Baptist Church. 

 

She was a wonderful cook and baker.  She shared her creations with many people over the years.

 

After a bad fall, Virginia became less mobile, so she moved to the Houston, TX area to be closer to her daughter and other family members. 

 

Predeceased by:

Parents:  Veon and Glennie Morgan, husband, Ralph Brill, sisters, June Shie, Doris Wilson and brother, Veon Morgan, step-brother Ray Carrier

 

She was survived by daughter, Sue Rayphole (Michael) Montgomery, TX

Grandchildren:  Jennifer Brooks (Jon) , Corpus Christi, TX and Robert Rayphole (Jennifer) in Houston, TX.
