Obituary for Virginia Lee Blackmon Temple

Mrs. Virginia Lee Blackmon Temple, 68, of Benson died Monday morning March 4, 2019 at her home. She was born July 12, 1950 in Harnett County daughter of Lena Mae Jackson Blackmon Barefoot and the late Fred Coolidge Blackmon.

Virginia was married for 51 years to her soul mate that she loved deeply. She loved her family and you never left her presence without her telling you so. She was a homemaker most of her life. She loved to work in her garden, flower beds, and watch the birds and squirrels play. She would often take visitors around her yard showing them her flowers blooming and her garden that she worked in almost daily. Most importantly, she loved the Lord and wrote songs and music in service to Him, which she often sang in church. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and wife. When able, she and “old man” would go fishing or an occasional trip to the beach. She lived life to the fullest and took nothing for granted. Friends that would visit never left hungry or without her trying to give you something. She was truly loved by all and will be missed dearly. Heaven surely gained an amazing beautiful angel. We love you mama and we will see you again. This is not goodbye, this is see you later.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 7, 2019 at Skinner & Smith Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Eddie White officiating. Burial will follow in Erwin Memorial Park.
