Patricia Smith McGinniss

Patricia Smith McGinniss, a longtime resident of King George County, went home to be with her Lord on Friday, March 22, 2013, surrounded by her family.

Born March 13, 1934, in Fredericksburg and raised in Falmouth, she graduated from James Monroe High School, Mary Washington College and received a Master of Education from the University of Virginia. Patricia taught school for many years at the Dahlgren base school, King George Elementary, and Colonial Beach school. After teaching, she was an assistant and then Voter Registrar of King George County for 21 years. Following retirement, she served on the Electoral Board and as an Officer of Election.

You may have been privileged to see her smile; she gave it often. Patricia was a giver. She was generous of her time, money, and love to her family, church, community and even those she never met. An active member of Falmouth, Shiloh, and finally Round Hill Baptist Church, she directed choir, taught Sunday school, led the YWAs, served as WMU President and as Sunday school superintendent. She enjoyed her Young at Heart Sunday school class. Following membership in the Junior Woman’s Club of Fredericksburg, she joined the GFWC Woman’s Club of King George--spending more than 50 years in volunteer community service. She was also active in the James Monroe Original Site Alumni Association.

She loved music, travel, time spent with family and friends, and her God. Her faith gave her courage to face her final illness and the confidence that she would be with her parents, Joseph and Edith Smith; husband Richard McGinniss; “brother” Orvid Powell; and many other family and friends who preceded her in death.

She is survived by her children, Katrina Minter (Ed), Kimberley Turner (Frank), Kevin McGinniss and Keith McGinniss (Tanya); sister Phyllis Dahlgren; special first cousin Jewel Weaver; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Visitation was held Monday, March 25, at Nash and Slaw Funeral Home, King George. A service was held Tuesday, March 26, at Round Hill Baptist Church, with interment in Shiloh Baptist Church cemetery. The Rev. Ted James and the Rev. Richard Headley officiated. A time of fellowship for family and friends followed in the Family Life Center at Shiloh Baptist Church.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Round Hill Baptist Church Building Fund, Box 467, King George, VA, 22485; or to the Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery Trust Fund, 13457 Kings Highway, King George, VA, 22485.
