She dedicated part of her life to take care of patients with Alzheimer’s as a nurse’s aide at Jane Phillips Memorial Hospital and later served as an activities director at Heritage Manor Nursing Home in Bartlesville, OK. She attended New Hope Assembly in Dewey, OK, where she made sure to volunteer and create strong bonds and friendships within the community of her church.

Virginia Lee Hollandsworth was a beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Throughout the years she stood mindful of her kids’ and grandkids’ milestones, making sure to attend every ball game and important event to them.
