OBITUARY: Virginia "Ginny" Langford

Virginia “Ginny” Langford, 90, passed peacefully into the arms of her Lord and Savior on March 8, 2012.

Virginia shared a home in Carson City, Nevada with her children Sandra Goodwin and Joel Klempner for four months. Prior to that, they lived in South Lake Tahoe, California for many years. Ginny was a lovely lady who could best be described as “the sweetest woman”. She was generous, kind, and concerned, and above all she had a loving heart toward family and friends that showed too in her love of animals.

Ginny was born to Clem and Odena O’Harran in Dubuque, Iowa. In her early years in Dubuque, Ginny was a business owner and we saw her fun side when she performed admirably as a “radio disc jockey.” She and her husband worked for many years developing a waste management company in the San Fernando Valley in California.

She was predeceased by her husband, Osborne Langford, her parents Clem O’Harran and Odena O’Harran, her brother John O’Harran and her sister Dorothy Sharp. She leaves behind her son and daughter; her granddaughter Sonya Klempner; grandson Paul Klempner; granddaughters Kelly Favela (Daniel), Kerry Goodwin; two great grandchildren Anthony and Ashley Picoy; her nieces Linda Straley, Ellen Bryson (T.K.), Cynthia Waddick, Pamela Haig; and nephew Robert Cotrell. Also, her remaining sister Elizabeth Cottrell; sister-in-law Norma O’Harran, and step-daughter Lana Seay (Joseph). Ginny was greatly loved and will be sorely missed.
