Virginia was born on August 14, 1943, the youngest child of Orlie and Dorothy (Gower) Bryan of Williamsport, PA.
Though small in stature, Virginia had a huge heart and loved her family dearly. She will always be remembered for her gentle ways. She always kept a cookie jar filled with her homemade cookies for her guests. Virginia found comfort watching the deer and birds browsing in her backyard. She was known for her strong faith and was a long-time member of the Painted Post United Methodist Church.

Hallgren, Sr. In addition, she is survived by four children, Guy (Tammy) Hallgren of Campbell, NY; Bryan (Teresa) Hallgren of Painted Post, NY; Cristine Hallgren-Updike (James Updike) of Gillett, PA; and Beth (David) Johnson of Warrenton, VA; six grandchildren: Brittany Sutryk, Nickolas Hallgren, Kristen Currie, Andria Hallgren, Mikaela Johnson and Gage Johnson; and six great-grandchildren: Tegan Smith, Kylin Sutryk, Nolan Sutryk, Garret Lanager, Coltan Hallgren and Isaac Currie. She is also survived by her sister, Shirley Craig of Dillsburg, PA, sister-in-law, Terri Bryan of Muncy, PA, along with nieces, nephews, and extended family.
In addition to her parents, Virginia was predeceased by her brothers, Harry (Mae) Bryan and Edward Bryan.
