COURTLAND — Virginia Whittemore Morgan, 76, passed away on March 11, 2020, in Sentara Obici Hospital.

Virginia Whittemore Morgan

Born in Richmond and raised in South Hill, she was the daughter of the late Eugene Madison Legge and Lucy Mae Legge.

Virginia was a retired peanut inspector for The VA Department of Agriculture.

She was a member of Boykins United Methodist Church, and a former member of the Tarrara Woman’s Club.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Jerry Curtis Morgan; a daughter, Connie W. Poland (Chet); a son, Stephen Whittemore; two grandchildren, Robert Poland (April Gilley) and Richard Poland (fiancée Skylar Goodman); two godchildren, Dee M. Clary and Jim Modlin; two special children, Wesley Story and Hank Fuller; and two step-daughters Lynn Arnette (Doug) and Laura Darden (Everett) and their families.

Virginia was better known as “Annie” to many of the children of the community. She opened her home and her pool to let the children come and play. Many of those children learned to swim there. Snacks, drinks, and fun activities were always available for the children. Annie made her home fun and safe.

She supported the children in their athletic endeavors by attending many of their ballgames. Her favorite teams to cheer for were the Duke Blue Devils and any team for which her “children” played.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 14, in Boykins United Methodist Church with the Rev. Kyle Bass and the Rev. Michael Baugham officiating.

The family received friends on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. in Wright Funeral Home, Franklin, and suggests that memorial donations be made to the Boykins United Methodist Church Building Fund, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation or the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.
