Virginia Martin Alfredson (you probably know her as "Gina"), 85, of Aurora, entered into eternal life on Thursday, August 30, 2018.  Her spirit is carried on by her three children, Sonja Giles, Helen Sauzek and Bill (Stacy) Alfredson, all of Aurora, CO. 

Virginia was very close to her extended family, nieces, nephews and friends.  We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Virginia during her 85 years, relating to life, love and happiness.

She was born on November 9, 1932, in Lexington, NE, the daughter of Grant and Alice (Neff) Martin.  In 1951 Virginia graduated from Lexington High School.  She attended Nebraska Weslyan College in Lincoln, NE for 1 1/2 years.  She moved to Colorado at the age of 19.  She worked as a loan officer in the banking industry, retiring from UMB.  She sang passionately with the Lamp Lighter's Quartet and Sweet Adeline's both in Denver.  She was always willing to turn up the radio and start a dance party in the kitchen.  Virginia enjoyed needlework, sewing, gardening, swimming, dancing and cooking sweets.

She never forgot her roots, watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers was a must.  Every Sunday, in the fall Virginia served as a loyal Denver Bronco's fan.  Her love of sports grew as her children had babies of their own.  Virginia stood on the sidelines as the number one fan during each grandchild's football, basketball, lacrosse, baseball games, cheer leading competitions and dance recitals.

She is survived by her children; her brother Bob (Glenda) Martin, Lexington, NE; and her grandchildren, Brittany (Jesse) Dittrich, Rawlins, WY, Tanner Giles, Aurora, CO, Tyler Giles, Aurora, CO, Robert Sauzek, Aurora, CO, Brody Sauzek, Aurora, CO, Cameron Alfredson, Aurora, CO, Caitlyn Alfredson, Aurora, CO, and Grant Alfredson, Aurora, CO.

She was predecesed by her parents and her sister Phyllis Fagot.

A Celebration of Life will be held at her daughter's, Sonja Giles home at 6307 S. Walden Way, Aurora, CO 80016, on Sunday, September 9, 2018 from 1-4 p.m..

In lieu of flowers please send memorial contributions to the Alzheimer's Association.
