Virginia (Thompson) James, 93, passed away on November 12, 2019 at Brandywine Living. She was the widow of Everson A. Kinn and Roye G. James.

Virginia was born in Hollis, Queens on October 19, 1926, daughter of the late William Burcham Thompson and Martha (Meister) Thompson.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved sister, Natalie (Thompson) Penny in 1999, her brother-in-law, Reverend William G.
