Virginia, known as Ginny, was born in Hollywood, Calif., on July 29, 1926, to Samuel William Aries and Mary Myrtle Herndon. She soon became a Pacific Northwest girl, spending her youth in Port Townsend, Chimacum and Seattle, Wash. She was 19 when the family moved back to Hollywood in 1945. There she worked in a dental office taking patient x-rays and living in a boarding house.
The end of World War II had brought the soldiers home from abroad and many who had disembarked in Los Angeles stayed there, including a young lieutenant by the name of Chester who had not returned to his native state of Texas. He, too, found living quarters in that boarding house. The landlady, with a matchmaking gleam in her eye, introduced her two young boarders. The landlady was right … Virginia Maye Aries and Chester Verlyn Sudduth were married on Oct. 24, 1948.
Ginny will be missed by friends and family alike. She was funny, loving and good hearted. She lived a full life. We will love you forever.
