Virginia Marrero Lobb

Virginia Marrero Lobb, 84, a resident of Waxahachie, Texas, and parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church, died peacefully at home on Monday, Nov. 30, 2020.

She was born in Waveland, Mississippi, and was an alumnus of St. Anthony’s in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She and her husband lived in Kentucky, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia, Florida, Delaware, and ultimately Waxahachie, Texas, where they moved to with their children in 1981.
