Virginia centered her life around her family. She married Dwight Manning on January 7, 1939 and they lived in the Jet area all their lives. She was Dwight's "right-hand man" no matter if it was slopping the pigs, taking meals to the field, taking the harvested wheat to the elevator or any of the other tasks being done on the farm. A woman of many talents, Virginia was a fantastic cook, sewed many beautiful quilts, and was always mowing and working in her yard. She especially loved Christmas always filling her yard with many fantastic Christmas displays. But mostly, she doted over her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She never missed sporting events, stock shows, or any other activities of her children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all. She was an active 70 year member of the Jet Industrious Extension Homemaker Club always helping with community dinners, getting cookbooks published and designing the T-shirts for the Jet Homecoming Celebration held every five years.
Virginia is survived by son, Ron and wife, Joyce of Enid and their children Lisa, Whitney and her wife, Sadie; grandchildren, Matt Manning and wife, Jeannine of Mesa Arizona, Mikki Grover and husband, Larry of Wichita Falls, Texas and their children, Austin and Ashley; great grandchildren, Colton Manning of Enid, Aden and Mariah Terryman of Wichita Falls, Texas. and special care-givers, John and Shanna Gehey of Enid.
Virginia is predeceased by her husband, Dwight; parents, Virgil and Mayme George; son, Jerry Manning and granddaughter, Ronda Manning.
