Virginia Ellen Lindemann of St. Clair, MO, departed this life at her home, surrounded by the love of her family, on June 18, 2017, having reached the age of ninety years, three months and twenty days. Virginia was born in St. Clair, on February 28, 1927, daughter of Anthony Bert Jones and Maggie Jane Jones nee Harms. On June 19, 1948, she was united in marriage to Ervin Henry Lindemann and two children came to bless this union.

Virginia is survived by her children, Janet Lindemann and Gary Lindemann, both of St. Clair, MO; by two grandsons, Jason Lindemann and wife, Ashley, of Tampa, FL and Todd Lindemann of St. Clair; by one great-granddaughter, Madison Lindemann of Tampa; by one brother, George Jones and wife, Shirley, of Union, MO; by two sisters, Margaret Kroeter and husband, Gilbert, of Union and Dorothy Wieda of St. Peters, MO; by many nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, Anthony and Maggie Jones; by two brothers, Ernest and Anthony Jones, and by six sisters, Gertrude Jones, Ruth Butler, Augusta Todd, Bertetta Enloe, Olive Hoyt and Josephine Sohn.

Virginia was a Christian and member of St. Clare Catholic Church since 1948. As a young woman, she was employed at International Shoe Company in St. Clair, MO, retiring after about thirty years of service to the company. Virginia's home and family were always her first priority and she was happy to help raise her grandsons. Virginia's sweet disposition and loving personality will be missed by her family. She was an avid Cardinals Baseball fan and rarely missed watching a game on television. Feeding and watching the birds was another of her hobbies and she especially enjoyed watching the hummingbirds during the summer months. Virginia's family was truly her pride and joy and the love they have shared gave her great joy.

A devoted and loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
