Virginia Blake will celebrate her 90th birthday on Sunday

Virginia Blake, Ronceverte’s beloved, well-known icon will celebrate her 90th birthday on Sunday, Dec. 11, between 2 and 4 p.m. at the Clifford Armory at 301 Edgar Avenue in Ronceverte. Hosted by the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation and the Ronceverte Women’s Club, the public is invited to join the festivities in honor of Virginia.

In a phone interview, Virginia exclaimed, “I was flabbergasted when I was asked to attend a birthday celebration and found out it was for me!”

Born Dec. 15, 1921, in Ronceverte, Virginia Blake (nee Butler), has remained an active participant in her hometown affairs for many years. Virginia’s engaging personality and persistent promotion have lent support to many town events. “She is a remarkable woman,” enthuses Sue Ella Miano, a fellow Roncevertian and a friend for many years. “Anyone in Ronceverte will tell you Virginia is an incredible recruiter. She can get you to do something you may not have thought you wanted to do,” Sue Ella said. “I have the greatest admiration for her.”
