Virginia Hall, affectionately known as "Gin," was a force of love, laughter, and resilience. Born on September 27, 1944, in Cambridge, Maryland, to the late Ernest Haynes, Sr. and Margie Wilkerson Hynes. "Gin" was the heart of her family and a beacon of joy in her community. Virginia's life was a testament to the words of Al Green, whose music she adored, "Love don't love nobody." This notion of unconditional love was evident in every facet of Virginia's life. She carried an unwavering devotion to her family, her friends, always there to extend a helping hand, a comforting word, or a delicious meal.\n\nVirginia's home was a haven of warmth, filled with the tantalizing aroma of her signature dish, "Carrying On," a recipe loved by all who had the pleasure of tasting it. Her love for her family and friends extended far beyond her kitchen. A proud graduate of Maces Lane High School's Class of 1963, Virginia was a steadfast pillar of her community, lending her time, energy, and resources wherever they were needed. Though she never formally worked outside of her home, Virginia's impact was felt far and wide, her legacy defined by her generosity, kindness, and an inexhaustible spirit of "mom" that she extended to everyone she knew.\n\nVirginia is survived by her devoted children; Stevie Haynes (Lorrianne), Barry Haynes (Teresa), Angelique Hall, Eric Hall, and Quinton Ford who was raised like a child; sisters, Geneva Jackson, Elaine Haynes Agnes Haynes; brothers, Ernest Haynes, Jr., and Joe Haynes; 15 grand-children and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. \n\nGin was preceded in death by her loving parents, Ernest Sr., and Margie Haynes and brothers Charles Haynes, Larry Haynes, and Curtis Haynes. Her life was a radiant tapestry of love, joy, and resilience, a testament to the power of a life lived with boundless love and generosity. As we remember Virginia, we are reminded of the words of Maya Angelou, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Virginia made us all feel loved, cherished, and seen.
