Virginia A. MacMillan, November 25, 1922 - January 9, 2020

Virginia A. MacMillan
Send Condolence

"My party is waiting for me at the gate. I have to go."

Virginia A. MacMillan, 97, died January 9, 2020 at her daughter’s home in Eau Claire. She was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Chicago. She married Hugh G. MacMillan in Savannah, Georgia on May 13, 1944.

They made their home in Chicago and Wauwatosa before retiring to Eau Claire. She and Hugh were avid golfers and enjoyed playing courses here and in Florida until his death in 2005. She was especially proud of her hole-in-one at Princeton Valley and saved her score card.

Before moving to her daughter’s home, she was a resident of Oak Gardens Place in Altoona. She enjoyed several years with the friendly residents and especially the caring staff.

Virginia is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Laird and Renae MacMillan, and her daughter, Pamela Simon. She was a loving grandma to Jenna Hubbard (Dale), Joshua Simon, Julie Chapman (Scott), Jeremy Simon (Mellina), Jill Wells, and Jared Simon (Nicole). She was always eager for visits from her great-grandchildren Brittny, Lyssie, John, Mia, Ella, Derek, Brandon, Henry and Nora. And that she had great-great-grandchildren, Connor, Mason and Baby McCarthy, was her special joy. They all miss their “Mima”. Virginia’s life was well-lived and she was a woman well-loved.

    Ginny & my mom (Elaine) shared a table at Oak Gardens for many meals.

    As a frequent guest (pest) it was a pleasure to meet Ginny and I always knew I would have someone to share Dairy Queen treats with.

    I enjoyed the tales of the golf course, swimming and many fun adventures she had.

    Although I was sad to see her leave Oak Gardens I know she was looking forward to living with Pam and being around family.

    Thank you for sharing some time with us.

    Elaine, Jeff & Patti

    For many years I called Bingo at Oakwood Gardens. Ginny participated frequently and was definitely one of my "favorites". She was fun and had a wonderful sense of humor. I loved listening to her and her best friend talk about "stuff" they did when they were younger. What a hoot!
    The world was a happier place because Jinny was in it. She will be missed. My sympathy to her family - especially Pam who I saw often.
