Virginia Jaggers

5 Generations (July 2005): Virginia Jaggers, Dale Jaggers , Marcy [Jaggers] Ramsey, Me, My Daughter

Last week, my family and I traveled to Nashville to celebrate the life of my Great Grandmother, Virgina Frances Jaggers, who passed away on February 28th. As a pastor's wife and mother of eight, she has left behind an enduring legacy of love and faith. Her life was a living example of God's promise:
...for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.
-Exodus 20:5-6
JAGGERS, Virginia Frances Age 92 of Hendersonville. February 28, 2009. Born January 19, 1917, passed away Saturday after a lenghty illness. Mrs. Jaggers was preceded in death by her husband, the late Dr. Irwin Jaggers, with whom she served in ministry for many years in the General Baptist Church. She was also preceded in death by two daughters, Doris (Jerry) Wetzel and Wilma Wilson, and by her sister, Nellie Jones. Mrs. Jaggers is survived by her daughters, Levetta (Gary) Wolfe and Glenda Jaggers, and by sons, Dean (Hazel), Dale (Debbie), Ben (Mary Anne) and Corlette (Wandalene); sisters, Louise (J. Martin) Deel and Mady (Jerry) Cline; brothers, Henry Sturdivant and R.W. (Gloria) Sturdivant; 23 grandchildren; 47 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren also survive.
