Virginia Elizabeth (Brown) Tindall was born on March 25, 1924 in Sioux City, Iowa. After graduating from East High School in 1942, Virginia was employed for forty years as a bookkeeper at various businesses in Sioux City. Most notable was her work at the Sioux City Stock Yards where she supervised a group widely known as “Goodie’s Angels”. In 1953, she won “Queen of the Industry” and was awarded a trip to Cuba.
An August 1964 marriage to Leonard Brown of Merrill, Iowa ended far too soon in 1971 due to a boating accident. In November 1989, she married Dr. Robert Tindall and they enjoyed family and friends for the next thirteen years while splitting time between Lake Okoboji, Iowa and Punta Gorda, Florida until Robert’s passing in late 2002. Since then, Virginia had made her home in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she was quite active in many church and volunteer activities.
In addition to the two husbands, older brother Royce Anderson was a person of great influence and importance throughout her entire life. Virginia was also loved and admired by many beyond her immediate family for her devout faithfulness, honesty, integrity, and tireless effort. She also had one heck of a wit (but was a lousy golfer).
Virginia is survived by a nephew, Steven Anderson of Wichita, Kansas and his daughter Amber; a nephew Robert Anderson and his wife Melanie of Tulsa, Oklahoma and their three children, Justin, Kristen, & Michelle and her husband Brandon.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Oscar Palmer and Elna Cecelia (Newberg) Anderson; her husbands, Leonard Berger Brown and Dr. Robert Nelson Tindall; her brother, Royce Clark Anderson and his wife Marjorie Carol (Kraft) Anderson.
