Virginia Rayna Place
November 23, 1956 - September 3, 2012
Virginia Rayna Place was born on November 23, 1956 in Sterling, CO to Luther and Amelia Price. Virginia loved animals, the beautiful Colorado mountains, and her family. She loved to knit, and to take as many pictures and videos of her loved ones as she could. She made an effort to ensure that every person knew how much she loved them. She enjoyed having gatherings for the holidays, and being surrounded by her family. Virginia was very proud of her career as a stay at home mom, as well as her time in the security department for Aurora Public Schools.
She passed away in her home on September 3, 2012. She was preceded in death by her husband, William K. Place, her son, Clifton M. Place, and her brother, John Conley.
She is survived by her brothers Steve, Allan, and Glen Price, as well as her sister, Terry Price; her daughter in law, Lisabeth Place, and her grandchildren, Melanie, Genesis, and Lucian. She is also survived by aunts, uncles, nephews, and nieces.
A memorial will be held for Virginia on Sunday, October 7th, at 2:00 PM, in order to allow time for family who may travel in order to attend. It will be held at 26900 E. Colfax Avenue, Aurora CO.
Virginias final wish was to have some of her ashes placed with her Husband and Son, and to be spread in the mountains, where Clifs ashes were spread. Virginia will be greatly missed by all who loved her.

Marlis HammVirginia and I go way back. I was the secretary at Kenton Elementary when Cliff went there. She was such a wonderful mother and so proud of Cliff. I enjoyed her friendship and though we didn't talk often, when we did, it was like just catching up. I will miss her and my prayers and thoughts go out to her family, especially to her daughter-in-law and her grandbabies who she loved dearly.
Dawn MillsKeeping the family in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Virginia was always a warm friendly voice on the phone when I would call day or night to say I was working late or extra at Fletcher. We would laugh and joke about our long hours but we both knew we loved our careers. She will be fondly remembered.

David DunlapI am sorry to hear of Your loss. I use to call Virginia
on the phone when I would lock up the building at I
night before I would leave. I didn't know her personally, but I did know Bill. Bill was my supervisor when I first got on with the district in
1986. When I would talk with Virginia on the phone I
would ask about Bill all the time. She had a sweet
voice on the phone and I enjoyed talking with her. I
am sorry for her loss and she will be missed and I
will keep you all in my prayers.
