Virginia Lee Sprouse Plasha, 93, of Oak Hill, WV passed away on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, at Tranquility at Kennesaw Mountain Hospice in Marietta, GA.

She was born June 20, 1926, in Kingston, WV, the daughter of the late Jacob A. Sprouse and Dixie M. Sprouse. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Henry G. “Hank” Plasha; her siblings, Mary Lou Sprouse, Vivian Doris Nugen (Albert R. Nugen), Billie Rachel Winters (Thomas E. Winters), and Jacob Thomas Sprouse (Judy L. Sprouse); and her son-in-law, Charles D. “Chic” Peart.

She is survived by her daughter Susan Plasha Peart of Kennesaw, GA; her nephew, whom she helped to raise, Thomas “Bart” Sprouse, (Jennifer Kniceley Sprouse) of Bridgeport, WV; and her grandchildren, Jason C.

Nugen (Sheryl Nugen), and Debbie Tonelli (Ed Tonelli); sister-in-law Irene Sprouse; and several great nieces and nephews.

She often spoke fondly of growing up in the coal camp in Kingston and always enjoyed attending the Kingston Reunion. A graduate of Kingston High School, she was a long-time employee of Sears where she served in various positions, starting first in Oak Hill and retiring from the Beckley Crossroads Mall location. In her later years, she spent her winters in Flagler Beach, FL. She was devoted to her family and friends, and never hesitated to help when needed. She had a keen sense of humor and enjoyed telling a good story. She was also an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs and the West Virginia Mountaineers.
