Virginia Jean Ann (Chambers) Tudor, the daughter of Raymond and Sadie (Weston) Chambers, was born January 7, 1931 in rural Charles City. She received her education in both Charles City and Osage, graduating from Osage High School.
On November 10, 1956, Virginia was united in marriage to Hurvey Tudor at The Little Brown Church in Nashua. The couple made their home on the Tudor family farm and they were blessed with three children: Jean, Joe and Rod. Virginia was at Hurvey’s side on the farm working hand-in-hand with him. Whenever you saw one of them, the other was very close behind.
Virginia was a member of First Wesleyan Church (The Bridge Church), Farm Bureau and the Charles City Saddle Club. She and Hurvey spent many years attending events together for all of these groups.
Virginia enjoyed painting, sewing, baking, gardening (flowers and vegetables), birds (feeding and watching) and going to farmer’s markets where she sold some of her produce. She looked after her two cats, Tommy and Katrina, and was always concerned for their well-being (especially in recent days). Virginia loved her family and spent as much time with them as possible.
Living family members include her three children: Jean (Kevin) McCloud of Charles City, Joe (Jeanine) Tudor of Charles City and Rod (Annjannette) Tudor of Colwell; seven grandchildren: Nikki (Kory) McIntire, Brian Hollister, Lacey (Nathan) Myhre, Eric (Samantha) Tudor, Aaron Tudor, Katey (Josh) Brase and Samantha Quade; 13 great-grandchildren; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Hurvey on December 9, 2016; sister, Elizabeth “Betty” Starr; and five brothers: Forest, James, Raymond, Ned and Freeman Chambers.
