She was born in Wooster on August 4, 1948 to the late Chester S. and Elrena M. (Hofstetter) Lehman. She was a member of the Kidron Mennonite Church.
Virgene was a woman of prayer who’s faith was the cornerstone of her life. Whatever she had she shared. She found great joy in choosing and giving gifts to loved ones. Her immediate family and cousins were especially dear to her. She took a special interest in their lives and loved talking about cherished memories. An Optimist, an encourager, a friend: Virgene brightened the lives of many with her generous spirit.
