Virgie Mae Prince was born October 26, 1940 in Owensville, Arkansas the 2nd of 4 children born to Clomer and Lona Virgie (Hefley) Chenault. She passed away March 28, 2020 at her home in Edmond at the age of 79.
Virgie graduated from Capitol Hill High School with the class of 1958 and continued her education at Central State College in Edmond, earning her BA in History Education in 1961. After doing her student teaching realized that was not her calling to pursue. She continued her work career at Memorial Park Cemetery for the next 38 years.
On Thanksgiving Day 1961, she met her future husband, George Arlie Prince. They were married April 20, 1963 in Edmond which they called home during their 54-year wonderful years of marriage. They attended the Spring Creek Assembly of God Church. Their greatest joy in life was traveling, camping, and visiting all the scenic wonders the United States had to offer. They visited all the states except for Alaska, Hawaii and North Dakota. Anytime there was a train, cave, or lighthouse in their travels, they made it their top priority. Virgie retired in 1998 to take care of her husband after he had open-heart surgery. If she could be working on their acreage mowing or cutting down a tree, this was her happy time.
Virgie is preceded in death by her parents; husband, George Arlie Prince in 2017, and her brother, Johnie. Survivors include her brother Don Chenault and her sister, Bonnie Reed along with other family and friends.
A graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at the Davenport Cemetery under the direction of Lehman Funeral Home of Wellston.
