Virgie M. Stutts, age 72, passed away Tuesday August 22, 2017. She was born to Terrell T. Poole and Creole M. Hampton on June 25, 1945 in Calcasieu Parish, LA.
Virgie had several different career paths throughout her life. She was a bartender, welder and during her later years, a home health provider. She loved to take care of people and was a strong leader. If you asked her for advice, she would tell you exactly like it is and exactly what you needed to hear with her strong loving spirit. Her kindness showed in the way she loved her family, especially her sisters. She loved babies, children and animals. Her dog, Sugar, meant the world to her. Her children held a special place in her heart. Virgie loved the outdoors. Swimming in the river, shooting guns and rifles or sitting by the campfire looking up at the stars was a favorite past time. Music and dancing were also things she enjoyed to do. Virgie was a faithful servant and she will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
