Virginia Hinson Bunn, 90, passed away peacefully at Kitty Askins Hospice Center in Goldsboro, Friday, May 11, 2012, surrounded by her family.

A graveside service will be held Monday, May 14, 2012, at 2 p.m. at Wayne Memorial Park in Dudley. The family will receive friends afterward.

Mrs. Bunn was born in Seven Springs and was preceded in death by her parents, Bennie and Maggie Hinson; brothers, Josh and Ralph Hinson; and a sister-in-law, Margie Hinson, all of Mount Olive.

She is survived by her son, Perry Bunn of the home in Goldsboro; her daughters, Linda Messer and husband, Larry, of Greenville and Sharon Willard and husband, Garry, of Raleigh; her grandchildren, Dan Rains and wife, Wendy, of Greenville, Holly Overton and husband, Michael, of Grimesland, Shae Noffsinger and husband, Chris, of Raleigh; her great-grandchildren, Maggie and Carter Rains, Lena and Parker Rose Overton and Max and Luke Noffsinger; her niece, Lottie Quinn and husband, Ralph, of Raleigh and a special family friend and caregiver, Barbara Walker of Goldsboro.

During her life, Mrs. Bunn was devoted to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She cherished them all and even though at the end of her life her memory had slipped away, she kept her sweet spirit. She greeted everyone that entered her home with "bless your heart," and "get you a bite to eat." Her humor and her presence will be greatly missed; she was a loyal parent, Christian and friend.

The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to her physician and friend, Dr. Wendy Cipriani, all the staff at 3HC Hospice and Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

Flowers are welcome or contributions may be made to Wayne County Meals on Wheels or Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

The family is being served by Howell Funeral Home and Crematory in Goldsboro.
