Virginia L. (Ginny) Bill-Collier, 94, McCordsville, Indiana, entered peacefully into Heaven on Thursday, August 25, 2022 at home. Virginia was born on Thursday, November 17, 1927 to the late Delbert and Mildred Miller in Millersburg, Indiana.
Her family moved to South Bend, Indiana where Virginia graduated from Central High School and began working for an attorney’s office as clerical support. During WWII she met the love of her life, Roger Bill and they were married on June 12, 1948 at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church, South Bend, Indiana. After starting their family, a transfer by Roger’s job brought them to Indianapolis, Indiana in 1965. Roger passed away in 1974 and Virginia continued her employment with the Nabisco Corporation until her retirement in 1989.
Virginia’s talents were many and she could crochet for hours making afghans that she would give away. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who enjoyed having fun with her family. Virginia was an active member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church on E. 10th Street in Indianapolis and enjoyed activities with her church friends. Her favorite things to do were to play 500 Rummy, Euchre, be on a boat that never set sail, and of course “The Wheel” every night at 7:00 p.m.
She is survived by her two daughters Cynthia Mills of Indianapolis, Indiana and Rebecca Hobbs (Donald) of McCordsville, Indiana, six grandchildren, and eleven great grandchildren, and numerous nieces.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents Delbert Miller and Mildred Burger, her husband Roger, two sisters, Dawn Wenrick of Edwardsburg, Michigan, Evelyn Ruszowski, of South Bend, Indiana, and a brother Delbert Miller of Memphis, Tennessee.
