For any who knew Virginia who worked decades in Sprouts’ vitamin department, I learned today that she passed away recently from an illness contracted on a Caribbean cruise with her family. For those who could not have known her, she was a diminutive, remarkable 83-year-old woman who looked no more than fifty, was always beautifully groomed, vibrant without a hint of elderly (not that elderly is a fault), & simply brilliant about natural health. She swore the secret to her health & vibrancy was quality food. She never told much about her family or private life except that they salvaged their home here after hurricane flooding using bleach. Everyone who knew her loved her, were awed by her knowledge, inspired by her attitude toward life, & are bereft to hear of her death. May she Rest In Peace
