Sessums, Virginia

Virginia Amelia Wolf Sessums, 82, of Silverton, Oregon, passed away peacefully at home with family at her side.

Virginia was born in Bismarck, North Dakota to Jacob and Philomena Wolf. She was one 11 children (Clara, John, Mary, Cecelia, Gabe Agnes, Ruth, Bernie, Leon and Irene.)

After a tornado destroyed their farm, they moved to Oregon, purchasing a small farm in Silverton.

Virginia graduated from St. Paul Catholic School and Silverton High School.

She was a devoted, loving, wonderful mother and grandma. She loved watching her family grow, enjoying all of her family reunions and get togethers with her brothers and sisters. Virginia enjoyed cooking big meals for all her guests. She also loved her trips to Central Oregon, the coast or just a drive in the country to see the beauty held within.

She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Wallace Sessums; four daughters and one son: Vicki (Dan) Ort, Sherri O’Dell, Troy (Angela) Douglas, Jennifer Sessums Mink, Nicole Sessums Skinner. She is also survived by 16 grandchildren: Danny, Shaun, Dustin and Shayna Ort; Rachel, Jason, Sara and Jordon O’Dell; Clayton, Shelby and Zachery Douglas; Tristin and Madison Mink; Logan, Sawyer and Preston Skinner; and by 16 great grandkids.

Virginia is preceded in death by her parents, Jacob and Philomena Wolf; brothers, John and Gabe; and sisters, Clara, Agnes, Ruth, Bernie.

A celebration of life will be held later.
