Virginia Ballantyne Dailey 1914-1983

Less than two weeks before her 69th birthday, (Irene) Virginia Ballantyne Dailey – known to the Uible-Ballantyne cousins as "Aunt Virginia" suffered a stroke on Wednesday, August 10, and passed away later that evening. Though she had suffered in the years since her husband Jim's passing in July 1965, her death was unexpected.

The obituary is from an unknown newspaper, possibly the New Cumberland Hancock Courier, or a Pittsburgh newspaper.  Transcription and additional details follow as well as a picture of Virginia and her baby sister, Jean c1925.
