Virginia Lee Brown Humphreys


obit-virginia-humphriesVirginia Lee Brown Humphreys went on to an adventure Saturday, Sept. 24, she had long desired. She passed away only to see the one she lived her life for and obtain that passport stamp into Heaven.

Virginia was born on Dec. 22, 1940, to John V. and Doris Brown. She met and married the love of her life, Richard Humphreys, in 1961 in Denver, Colo. Virginia was a faithful wife of 46 years to her late husband, Richard; they had four children together.

The two of them had many journeys and made many memories all throughout the mountains of Colorado. Along with her own children, Virginia was a mother to many. She loved every child as if they were her own. She dedicated her life to serving children as she believed that every child has a special destiny and with the right amount of love and affirmation they would go on to do great things. This included her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that she mentored and spoiled with love every possible moment. As she left this earth, she had the joy of knowing that her family had great respect, love and affection for her.

Virginia will be greatly missed where she traveled the nations doing missions work. Her family will miss all the great times, talks and joking around we had with her. The grandchildren will miss all the special adventures Grandma would have in store for them. Virginia is a very loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, missionary, mentor, author, friend and an inspiration to many.

She is survived by her children: Diane Pollard, of Houston, Texas; Debbie Calavan, of Pagosa Springs; Jason Humphreys, of Phoenix, Ariz.; and Jeremy Humphreys, of Airlie Beach, QLD Australia; 11 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; her sister, Patricia Harper, of Greeley, Colo.; and one nephew.

Virginia’s life was always selfless and knew that her family and friends were scattered all over the world, therefore she requested that there would be no services for her. She asked that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a scholarship fund set up with YWAM Whitsunday for Discipleship Training Schools for young people in memory of Virginia Humphreys. Donations may be mailed to: Debbie Calavan, P.O. Box 1831, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147. Please make donation checks payable to: Restoration Fellowship, with a note included for Virginia Humphreys’ memorial.
