Virginia Polster

Virginia L. Polster was born May 6, 1935 in Bucyrus, Kansas and passed away Wednesday September 25, 2019 at her home, surrounded by her loved ones.

Mom has a deep love for her faith and her family; she was the consummate military wife, taking each new post in stride. During her husband Bill’s many deployments, mom held the family together and made each house a warm and welcome home for their children. Upon Bill’s retirement, they settled in the Tri-Cities and enjoyed many years together with their treasured children and grandchildren. Mom had a love of gardening and spent much time outdoors tending to her picturesque yard. Throughout their 63 years together, they were blessed with 6 children, 12 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Virginia’s family would like to invite you to a Celebration of her life on Monday, September 30, 2019. There will be a Rosary at 10:00 a.m. immediately followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 a.m. Both to be held at Christ the King Catholic Church, in Richland, WA with a reception following.

We ask that in lieu of flowers donations be made to her favorite charity, Food for the Poor.

Graveside Services for the family will be held at a later date at Sunset Gardens in Richland, WA.

  • We were so sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. We always enjoyed visiting with her – she was truly a angel on earth.

  • To the Family,
    We are sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss Virginia dearly. She was a wonderful person and dear friend to us. She would always talk to us and ask how we were doing. I (Tracy Becker) just saw her at Church a couple of weeks ago and talked to her. She seemed like she was doing good. She was on her Oxygen and seemed a little slower but not too bad. We always gave each other hugs too. I will miss seeing her at Church. Our family is sad to see her go. We know that she is no longer suffering and in a better place. Our Lord Jesus will take care of her until we all see her in heaven.
    May God Bless you all and give you strength and peace during this difficult time.
    God Bless,
    The Becker Family

  • I think Ginny was my mom’s favorite niece. I will never forget how she would say bless your heart. I have fond memories of the family stopping in Massachusetts between assignments and esp Caroline’s many visits. Wish I could come out again sometime, I think of you often. The last time I heard my mom say the Our Father in polish was when we where there visiting. Meanwhile I am certain that “great aunt Helen” will have met her in heaven. God bless all of you.
