Obituary

Virginia (Gennie) Stiles Pittman, of Dallas, GA, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on February 20, 2022 at the age of 97.

 Virginia was born on December 17, 1924 in Cobb County, Georgia to the late Harley Samuel and Bessie Scroggs Stiles and grew up in a close knit family with her 8 brothers and sisters.  She graduated from Marietta High School and began her career as a bookkeeper with Anderson Chevrolet in Marietta, Georgia.  After meeting and marrying Sidney Pittman she was devoted to being a wife and mother (teacher, mentor, counselor, cheer leader and number 1 fan of all her children).  Together Sidney and Virginia raised a beautiful family of seven children.  She was a long-time member of Awtrey-Westwood Baptist Church where she enjoyed many activities, especially being a member of the choir.  Virginia loved working crossword puzzles, working on jigsaw puzzles (the harder the better), board and card games.  During the past few years playing Skip-Bo became her favorite way to pass the time.  Playing the game with one or more of her children became a daily activity. 

 Virginia is survived by her children Amy Pittman Bennett, Barbara Pittman Bennett (Ron), Joel Samuel Pittman (Vee), Gloria Pittman, Elizabeth Pittman Moss, David Pittman (Wanda) and Marian Pittman Gallman (Mark), 21 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren and 10 great-great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney Luther Pittman, her parents and siblings, her son-in-law, Jackie Glenn Bennett and grandson Benjamin Luther VanBuren.  She is loved by many and will be missed by many.

 Visitation will be Saturday, February 26, from 9:00 am until 10:30 am at Medford-Peden Funeral Home, 1408 Canton Road, Marietta, Georgia 30066, followed by a celebration of life service at 11:00 am in the Medford-Peden Chapel with Virginia’s grandson, Michael Bennett officiating.
