Obituary for Virginia F. Topper (Fors)

Virginia “Ginny” Fors Topper, 86, of Hummelstown, passed away Saturday, August 26, 2017, in the M.S. Hershey Medical Center, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Hummelstown on September 23, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Oscar Fors, Sr. and Ruth Nissley Holler Fors.
Virginia was a 50-plus year member of Trinity United Methodist Church and current member of Grace United Methodist Church, both of Hummelstown. She was a former baker at Weis Markets, Hummelstown. Virginia enjoyed monthly luncheons with the “48ers’ from Hummelstown High School, and helping at the Food Bank and Library. Reading was her passion, and she found joy in mentoring children with reading difficulties. Virginia’s entire life was devoted to faith, family, and friends; and she had a wonderful sense of humor that added to her being a warm, delightfully fun person.
Virginia is survived by her husband of 68 years, Ray M. Topper, whom she married on July 15, 1949; two daughters, Leslie D. Fox widow of John K. of Hummelstown, and Emily T. Hicks wife of Larry of Harrisburg; a son, William Douglas Topper of New York City, NY; a sister, Barbara F. Gleim of Indiana; daughter-in-law, Carol Topper of Hershey; four grandchildren, Amber Topper, Courtney Zinn, Chelsey Banda, and Travis Hicks; and one great grandson, Maxwell Banda.
In addition to her parents, Virginia was preceded in death by two sons, Timothy R. Topper and Jeffrey A. Topper; two grandchildren, Kimberly Jo Topper and Zachary Topper; a brother, Oscar Fors, Jr.; and a sister, Lillian F. Russell.
A memorial service will be held Thursday, August 31, 2017, at 11 AM in Grace United Methodist Church, 433 East Main Street, Hummelstown, with The Rev. John A. Schaefer, her pastor, officiating. Inurnment will be in the Hummelstown Cemetery. A visitation will be held Thursday in the church from 10 AM until time of the service.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes to have contributions, either monetary or food, made in Virginia’s memory to the Hummelstown Food Bank, c/o Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, 100 West Main Street, Hummelstown, PA 17036.
