Virginia “Jenny” Rayne Fiori was born in Hebron, in a former country church. She was the oldest of two children born to Everett Sylvester and Mary Ellen Rayne.

She had a servant’s heart at a young age, farming and plowing the family fields. Virginia was beautiful, vibrant and joyous! She was a contestant in a “Miss Hebron” beauty pageant. She met her steadfast love, Edward Fiori of 70 years, at the Sharptown Carnival Bingo Pavilion.

Virginia lived a selfless life of love in Jesus. She was devoted to her family unconditionally, and she never met a stranger! She was an avid bird watcher, lover of animals, and enjoyed gardening and canning. Her favorite place was always at the beach!

Virginia is survived by her loving, devoted husband and caregiver, Edward Fiori of 70 years; her daughter Judy, former husband, Ben Burris of Seaford; her daughter Darla, husband, Bob Ellis, from Seaford; her daughter Sharon, former husband, Sean Gibson of League City, TX; grandchildren, Benjamin, Christopher, Christa and Zack; great-grandchildren, Chloe, Maddy and Rob. She is also survived by her sisters-in-law, Barbara Rayne and Geraldine Cannon and many nieces, nephews and friends of the family.

She was preceded in death by her brother Charles Rayne.
