Virginia May Manion, 95, passed away December 28, 2017 at her home surrounded by some of her loved ones.
She was born May 17, 1922 in Union Gap, Washington to the late Howard John Gause and Florence Margaret Stevens Gause.
Marg (or Ginny) as her family knew her was the matriarch of her very large family after her mother’s death in 1994. Family and church were her foundations. She was known for many things but most notably for her love of flowers, family and friends, and being a baker of delicious pies and biscuits. She held many jobs during her long life, but most of all she was a devoted homemaker. She was always involved in her church; starting as a child at the Nazarene church in Union Gap, Everett Nazarene (1956-1958), Renton Church of the Nazarene (1958-1960), Maple Valley Church of the Nazarene (1960 - 1983), and the Renton Park Chapel (1983 - Present).
She was preceded in death by her husband Aubrey Glenn Manion (1921-1989), children Andrea M. Dunn (1943-2013), Robert A Manion (1945), and siblings Roberta Gause (1925-1930), Frances Mayhew (1926-2016) and Rosemary Niles (1930-1993).
