Virginia Ann Doup
January 10, 1936 ‒ March 15, 2017
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Virginia Ann (Kymer) Doup, age 81, of Mount Vernon, passed away on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the Laurels of Mount Vernon. She was born on January 10, 1936 in Sistersville, West Virginia to the late John and Madeline (Nogard) Kymer. Virginia passed away after a short illness and a broken heart. The cancer hurt her physical health but the loss of her husband and best friend last month defeated her will to live.
Virginia owned and operated Virginia’s Beauty Shop for 51 years and she proudly served her customers into her 80’s. Her career wasn’t about the money, but about the relationships built with her clients who became her friends.
Virginia was a huge sports fan and she loved to sit and watch many of the local softball games over the years. Sometimes she didn’t know a single player, she just loved the game! Virginia played softball into her 40’s and was also an accomplished bowler where she was a member of several local championship teams. She loved to follow her sons whether playing or coaching sports.
She is survived by her sons; Ron (Rhonda) Doup and Greg Doup (Casey Conner)both of Mount Vernon, three grandchildren, Jamie Doup (Adam Simpson) of Galena, Ryan Doup (Cara Miller) of Westerville and Lexie Doup of Mount Vernon; a great grandson, Zach Thomas of Galena; five sisters, Barbara Kymer of Mount Vernon, Bette Magers of Howard, Phyllis Sipes of Oroville, California, Francis Wilcox of Mount Vernon, Karen (Wayne) Gallwitz of Mount Vernon and several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband D. Gene Doup (2017) of 60 years; infant children, Randy Doup and Bonnie Sue Doup.
Friends may call on Sunday, March 19, 2017 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home where a Celebration of Life service will begin at 3 p.m. Mr. Roger Marra will be officiating. A private burial will be held in Amity Cemetery.
