Obituary for Virginia Gural

Virginia  Gural
103 year old Virginia Koval Gural peacefully passed away on Friday night, June 22, 2018. She was surrounded by family singing spiritual songs and praying the Lord’s Prayer at her daughter’s home in Woodway, Texas.
Visitation will be from noon til 2 and funeral service at 2 pm on Wednesday, June 27 at OakCrest Funeral Home in Waco, Texas. She will travel to Western Pennsylvania and have the graveside service at Beallsville Cemetery in Beallsville, Pennsylvania on Thursday, July 5th.
In 1914 Virginia was born at home in Ellsworth, Pennsylvania to Anna Morosky Koval and John Koval. She was the oldest of 3 children.
Virginia graduated from East High School in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1932. She then relocated to Detroit, Michigan where she thoroughly enjoyed creating pastries in a local bakery. She was pursued there by the love of her life, Joseph Gural.
After marrying Joe on July 21st, 1941, she moved to Cokeburg, Pennsylvania where she resided in the same house for 69 years. In this home she raised her two children, Bob and Jo-Ann, and had her grandchildren, Bob, Tim, B.J. and Paul visit often. She cooked many meals for family and friends, including pierogies, stuffed cabbage, and blackberry pies that you could pick up a slice to eat. Her culinary talents extended beyond the home. Virginia was a cook for Century Inn, a historic establishment located on the Old National Road in Scenery Hill, Pennsylvania.
After the death of her husband, Joe, in 1991, Virginia was able to live by herself in Cokeburg due to the services provided by the Bentleyville, Pennsylvania Senior Citizens who provided, transportation, meals, fellowship and another place to help serve others food.

In 2010 she moved to Woodway, Texas to live with her daughter and husband, Jim. Virginia contributed to the lives of her daughter, her grandchildren, and her great grandchildren for many years. The great grandchildren include Garrett, Abbie, Zachary, and Zoe.
At the age of 97, Virginia became active in the Harrison Senior Center where she served food to the younger members for eight years. She was constantly on the move: cleaning the kitchen, doing her laundry, and helping others up to days before her passing. Virgina Gural embodied the ideal of a strong work ethic, conservation of resources, using wealth wisely and always making something productive of the day.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, Anna and John Koval, her brother, Joseph Koval, sister, Florence Swasko, and her husband, Joseph Gural.
She is survived by her son, Robert and wife, Cheryl Gural; daughter, Jo-Ann, and husband, Jim Williams; her grandsons: Bob Gural, Tim Gural, B.J. Williams plus Paul and wife, Caryn Williams in addition to all her great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Virginia Gural to either Senior Center or the Waco, TX Providence Hospice would be appreciated. The family extends a heartfelt thank you to the individuals of each of these three organizations for enhancing the life of Virginia.
