May 3, 1925 - August 5, 2019
Virginia May Frey, 94, of Fairmont, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 05, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on May 03, 1925, in Farmington, a daughter of the late Charles W. and Jennie A. (Kerr) Conaway. Virginia was Methodist by faith, and a current member of the Barrackville United Methodist Church. For many years she was a devoted Sunday School teacher at the United Methodist Temple in Fairmont. She was a loving person who truly cared about others. Her loving nature contributed to her career as a nurse. She was a retired Registered Nurse, having worked in both a doctor’s office and at Fairmont General Hospital in the cardiac unit as an Assistant Head Nurse. She was a member of the Nurse’s Cadet Corps during World War II. She, her husband William, and her brother-in-law Robert, owned and operated Frey Home for Funerals and Ambulance Service. She was the same wonderful person in her personal life – a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. She was the center of her family and very dedicated to them. She will be forever remembered, cherished, and missed. Virginia is survived by two daughters, Suzanne Pickstone and husband Norman, of Fairmont, and Jenny Crebar, of Fairmont; three grandchildren: Lisa Tork and her husband John, of Wheeling, Cindy Brown and her husband Josh, of Fairmont, and Joseph Pickstone, of Pittsburgh; six great-grandchildren: Elizabeth Rende, Emily Tork, Sarah Jochum, Katelyn Jochum, Sydney Brown, and Morgan Brown. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, William “Bill” Frey, and her brother, Charles W. Conaway Jr., who died in infancy. Virginia loved all animals, especially her cats, Cookie and Cracker. Memorial contributions may be made to Marion County Humane Society, P.O.
