Charles B. Virgin

Charles B. Virgin, 84, Mulberry, passed away Tuesday, October 25, 2022, at Mulberry Health and Rehabilitation.  He was born January 20, 1938, in Mulberry to Hanford and Miriam (Maguire) Virgin.  He married the love of his life, Anita Thompson on April 7, 1956.  She preceded him on April 24, 2005.
