December 04, 2012

Jeanette Etchison Grimes, 65, died Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, of acute leukemia.

Born Dec. 23, 1946, in North Haven, Conn., she was the daughter of Jane Etchison and the late Bruce Etchison.

She is survived by her husband, William E. Grimes; stepchildren, William B. Grimes and Zona Olmstead; brothers, Craig Etchison and Page Etchison; and her mother, Jane Etchison.

After graduation from Lynchburg College, Mrs. Grimes worked more than 20 years for the Virginia Department of Social Services. She subsequently spent many happy years as a partner in her husband's business. During that time, they took numerous wonderful trips in their camper all over North America.

During her life, she quietly helped many who were less fortunate or in need; indeed, helping others right up until her death. Our world is a little better for her many acts of compassion, both large and small.

Memorial contributions may be made to Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, P.O. Box 937, Verona, VA 24482.
