Virginia Sue Brosius

Virginia Sue Brosius, 63, of Jamestown, passed away on April 17, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Virginia was born July 18, 1950, the daughter of Robert J. and Edna P. Baughman Brosius. She spent her early years in Oil City, Pa.

Virginia is survived by a daughter, Rayele Willey Bartholomew and her husband, Orlo Jason, and several grandchildren.

She is further survived by several sisters: Sarah (Edward) Kulinski, Darlene (Merle) Simmons and Katherine Andres; two brothers: Thomas (Carolyn) Brosius and Richard Brosius; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents, two daughters: Tracy Ross Culver and Kathie Ross Porter; a brother, Robert “Jim” Brosius; and a sister, Barbara Ellington.

There will be no viewing. One of Sue’s greatest wishes is a cure for cancer and thus she has donated her body to the University at Buffalo School of Medicine for research.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Hospice of Chautauqua County, 20 Fair-mount Ave., Lakewood, NY 14750 or the Chautauqua County Humane Society, 2825 Strunk Road, Jamestown, NY 14701.
