A celebration of life for Virginia Faye Coleman will be held at 3:00pm, Saturday, January 9, 2021, in the chapel Griffin Funeral Home, 911 Warren Drive West Monroe, with Bro. Jeff Coleman and Bro. Otis Lenoir officiating. Family will receive friends for visitation, 1pm until time of service at the funeral home.

Virginia was born August 22, 1951 and passed from this life January 6, 2021 at the age of 69. She was saved and baptized at White Avenue Baptist Church in Bastrop, and later in life, became a member of Christ Church West Monroe and loved being a part of her Wisdom Club.

She graduated from Bastrop High School in 1970. She attended NLU, and later received her certificate from Cloyd's Beauty School. She spent most of her adult life in Little Rock, Arkansas where she worked at the Arkansas Democrat. While in AR she developed an un" healthy love” of the Arkansas Razorbacks. This became a lifelong battle with her Louisiana family.

She was known to family and friends as Aunt Ginger. Aunt Ginger had several loves: love for the Hogs, love for cats and dogs, and a love for diet coke. But there is no joke about how much she loved her family. She especially loved her great nieces and nephews which carried over to her great-greats.

As her health declined, she chose to move to Ouachita Rehab and Nursing Facility where she gained many friends with whom she enjoyed playing dominoes and Rook. Aunt Ginger had many dear friends that the family would also like to thank for all of their love and support over the years: Dianne Boughton, Debbie Lockwood, Janice Coleman, and Ms. Lula Tolar.

She is preceded in death by her father, Luel Coleman; mother, Gladys Christmas Coleman; Brother, Jeff David Coleman.

Those left to cherish her memories include her brother, Luel D. "Butch" Coleman and wife Angie of Black Rock, AR; nephews, Jeffery D. Coleman and wife Teresa of Delhi, LA, Mark Coleman and wife Wendy of Ruston, LA, Scott Coleman and fiancé Michelle of Collinston, LA, and Chris Coleman and wife Chrissy of Sterlington, LA; nieces, Shannon Newsome and husband Mike of Petal, MS, and Mary Ellen Mangum of Petal, MS, Jill Gray and husband Kevin of Paragould, AR, Amy Moore and husband Eddie of Bastrop, LA, and Stephanie Roberts of Black Rock, AR; sister in law's, Nadine Coleman Gay of Petal, MS, and Janice Coleman of Sterlington, LA; ten great nieces, eight great nephews, three great-great nieces, two great-great nephews; also survived by a host of extended family and friends.
