Virginia Lee (Mosley) Blakely, 84, passed away on Monday, October 2, 2017.  Virginia was born on December 25, 1933 in Kilgore, Texas to parents William and Seawillow (Bates) Mosley. Virginia was a 1951 graduate of Sabine High School where she was Salutatorian of her graduating class, cheerleader, member of the school council, tennis and volleyball teams. She attended Kilgore Jr. College from 1951-1953 and was a member of the Kilgore Rangerettes Drill Team. While at Sabine High she met the love of her life, Bill Blakely, and they enjoyed a lifelong love affair culminating in sixty years of marriage. Virginia was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She enjoyed sports and was a passionate supporter of the University of Texas Longhorns and Houston Professional Sports Teams. Her absolute favorite team was the Houston Astros. She especially enjoyed and faithfully attended her grand-daughters (Chelsea and Brianna) volleyball exploits throughout their high school and college years, attending matches and tournaments in virtually every state of the continent. Her most recent blessing and source of inspiration to continue the battle against her illness was the birth of her great grandchild Aubrey Brenee Matthews.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents William and Seawillow Mosley, her sisters Mary Francis Travis and Billie Jean Baggett, her favorite brother-in-law Byrd (Junior) Baggett, and mother-in-law Iva Lee Sloan.
