Virginia "Ginger" Leona Hooker, 73 of Harleyville, South Carolina, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 1, 2023.

Born on December 31, 1949 in Baltimore, MD was a Daughter of the late Christine Watson (Infinger) and Cecil Pomeroy.

Virginia worked for 22 years at Lockheed Martin in Marietta, Georgia and worked various positions including machinist. She had a boisterous laugh, a big heart and a very outgoing personality.

During her life she became fascinated with The Civil War and its history as she surrounded herself with books of battles and visited various battlegrounds.
