Obituary of Verna Lois Binger

Verna Lois Walsh Binger, 96, of Bedford, passed away Thursday, February 21, 2019, at English Meadows in Bedford. She was the wife of the late Robert Junior Binger.

Born April 10, 1922, in Elkton, S.D., she was a daughter of the late Thomas and Pearl Walsh. She was a faithful member of Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church in Bedford.

She is survived by five children, Jon E. Roberts, Marietta M. Salyer (David), Robert L. Binger (Cindy), Frederick A. Binger (Janet), Melinda B. Martin (Jon); one sister, Mary Lou Vossen; eleven grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by one daughter, Marsha Elizabeth Wolford and seven sisters. She lived through the Great Depression and World War II. She was a deadly shot with a shoe or spoon and could make the hair stand on the back of your neck with a look. She had the heart of a saint, the disposition of a warrior, the morals of a corn fed mid- westerner and the pride of a southerner.  

The family will receive friends Sunday, February 24, 2019, from 2 until 4 p.m. at Diuguid Waterlick Chapel, 21914 Timberlake Rd., Lynchburg, VA 24502.
