Virginia Weeks

Longtime Oak Harbor resident Virginia “Ginny” Weeks passed away at her home on Sunday, May 3, 2015, at the age of 77 after a long battle with cancer.

Ginny is lovingly remembered by her son Alan L. Weeks Jr., her daughter Shelley Smith, son-in-law Butch Smith, grandson Jesse Smith and her many close friends.

Ginny was born in Hebbronville, Texas, on June 21, 1937, to Fritz and Edna Yates Vollmering. She graduated from Hebbronville High School and went on to earn a music degree in college. Shortly thereafter she married Alan L. Weeks Sr.

Ginny accomplished many things in her life. Among them were wife to Naval Officer Capt. Alan L. Weeks Sr., executive legal secretary, artist, teacher, “adopted” mother and cherished friend to many.

Among her many talents, Ginny enjoyed helping others, painting, cooking, a good laugh, old movies and her dogs Chui and Kona, the “Dogzillas.”

Ginny requested no funeral services but instead have her ashes cast upon the wind in a private family ceremony from atop Mount Erie.

The family wishes to express our gratitude for all the kind wishes of sympathy and encouragement expressed to us throughout this trying time. Our sincere thanks.

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Wallin Funeral Home.
