Virginia Louise Rhoades, 78, of Owensboro, went to be with the Lord on July 15, 2019. Virginia was born in Owensboro on November 27, 1940, to the late James Allen and Pearl Jones Fielden.

An avid sports fan, Virginia would watch any sport on television but loved watching UK basketball the most.

She was preceded in death by her husband, David Daniel Rhoades; one brother, and two sisters.

Survivors include her son, David "Toby" A. Rhoades (Sandy); daughters, Debbie Fulkerson (Danny), Karen Connor (Jim) Kim Pierce (Gary), and Myra Rodriguez (Earven); 13 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren with one on the way, one great-great-grandchild with three on the way; a brother and five sisters; sister-in-law Loretta Rhoades; special friends Anne Stewart and Sharon Kost; canine companion, Precious; and cats Tigger and Nova.
