Virginia Sue Tadano
Tadano, Virginia Sue 58, passed away on September 10, 2011 in Phoenix, AZ. She was born on March 22, 1953 in Santa Cruz, California. The family moved to Arizona 3 years later. She grew up in Phoenix, and attended Maryvale High School, where she met the love of her life. She married Charlie Tadano, her high school sweetheart on July 24, 1970. She was a member of Calvary Community Church and taught Sunday school there. Charlie & Virginia owned Triple T Promotional Marketing for 15 years. She volunteered with the Japanese Friendship Garden and on July 24, 2006 amidst family and friends she and Charlie renewed their vows within the Garden. Virginia was an avid gardener herself... (which made sense since her favorite color was green). She loved hummingbirds and attracted them to her home with many flowers and feeders. She loved to be outdoors and enjoyed volunteering & instructing with her SALT (Study of Ancient Lifeways & Technology) group. Next to her faith in Christ, her greatest love was her grandchildren and she made a point to see them ALL... often. She and Charlie would drop in for a grandkid "fix" several times a week even if it was only for 10 minutes. She was "Grandma Ginnie" to all of the neighborhood kids & to her grandchildren's friends. They all knew her and loved her & she loved them unconditionally like they were her own. Virginia was a giver... of her time and her heart and we are devastated by her loss, but rejoice in knowing that she is in Heaven with Christ Jesus. She is survived by her loving husband Charles, son Michael (Lisa), daughters; Jennifer (Roy) Brown and Julie (Brian) Read, mother- in- law Rena Tadano and grandchildren; Jason, Jonathan, Christopher, Abby, Ryan, Kylie, Kade, Gunnar, Taylor, Seth, Amaya (and one on the way) Huck. A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, September 16, 2011, 6:00 PM at Calvary Community Church 12612 N. Black Canyon Hwy Phoenix, AZ.
