Virginia Faith Balster

Virginia Faith (King) Balster

Died on March 31, 2018, at the age of 82.

Virginia was born April 22, 1935 in Ortonville, MN to Joesph and Hilda King. It was in the fall of 1955 when she married her high school sweetheart, William Otto in Colorado Springs, CO. Virginia, along with Bill, raised and nurtured two children, Kathleen (of St. Louis Park) and Steven (of Minneapolis).

Working as an office manager gave way in her forties to, her thirst for more education when she enrolled at the U of M School of Management. Graduation was a very proud moment. Virginia was a kind and curious person who always had that twinkle in her eyes. Humor was prevalent. More importantly and true to her middle name, faith was always strong in her heart. Her faith in her family; her faith and belief in God never wavered. It was with astounding courage and constant reinvention that she managed as best she could in her last years the challenges of Alzheimer’s.

Virginia is survived by her children, Kathleen and Steven; brother, Herbert King; sister, Victoria King; brothers in-law, Chuck (Karen), David (Marilyn); sister in-law Ann King; many nieces, nephews and friends all of whom she remembered and loved so very much.

A private service will be held later this spring.

A very special thank you to those who made our mom smile and feel so loved. To friends of Steven and Kathleen, bless you for all of the support you gave to us both.
