Humphreys, Virginia P.


Virginia Philips Humphreys 97, beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Aunt & Friend passed away Oct. 30, 2019. Virginia was born in New Caney, Texas to Sara Rose Etta and Eugene Philips on June 24, 1922. She was born ninth of ten children. Virginia grew up in the Heights, and graduated from Reagan High School.
She met the love of her life, Ira Douglas on a blind date. They married in June of 1942. After WWII, they lived in Houston where their son Doug was born. They were then transferred to El Paso, where their daughter Trisha was born. Navy life meant lots of moves. Every new place brought opportunities to meet new friends & make memories. After retirement from the Navy, they moved back to El Paso.

Virginia began working in the County Clerk’s office in Marriage Licenses, where she issued licenses to both her son and her daughter on the same day. She later became the supervisor of the Probate department. After retirement from the County, Virginia & Doug moved back to Houston, where they had many family members & friends. They were part of every family celebration, sporting events, dance recitals, birthdays, holidays and family vacations.

Virginia built a lasting legacy of love. After 58 years of marriage, her husband Doug died in 2000. During this time of grieving, Virginia, her daughter and grand-daughter Hayley helped in forming a new church and became charter members of Wildwood United Methodist Church in Magnolia, Texas.

What an honor to know this beautiful woman and her extended family for the last 15 years! She was a kind and caring person with a delightful sense of humor and could tell many family stories that would make me cry with laughter. I will truly miss seeing Virginia when I come visit Trisha, Ken and Hayley, knowing she will not be coming over for an afternoon chat or dinner. She will always hold a special place in my heart that now lives on in her daughter. This world was a better place because of Virginia, and now she continues her eternal life with her loving husband in Heaven. God bless you, Virginia. I will miss you. Karen
