Virginia P. Mouros, 92, of South Bend, passed away on Wednesday, November 29th in her home with her family by her side. Virginia was born July 7, 1925 in South Bend to the late Sophie (Kohan) and Frank Wilk and was a lifetime area resident. In 1948 as Virginia Wilk she married Chris Mouros who preceded her in death. She is survived by her children, Linda Mouros, Chris Mouros (Laura) and Paul Mouros all of South Bend and Theodore Mouros of Berwyn, IL; and her granddaughter, Athena Mouros of Oak Park, IL.
Virginia grew up in a loving, caring, nurturing family of the depression. She adored her sisters and many brothers all of whom were employed by Studebaker. Virginia also worked at Studebaker and was proud to tell people she worked on the "Weasel" during WWII. Virginia saw the good and bad growing up but always remained positive and was the glue that kept our family together. Someone once said, "I lived my life my way". Mom truly lived her life this way, be it raising four children or being there for anyone. Virginia was not afraid of anything and died on her own terms. Mom was the quintessential best mother. She was passionate about environmental issues, animals, eating Happy Meals at McDonalds and especially her family and was so proud of her granddaughter Sophie Mouros. Virginia instilled love in everyone she met and cultivated many friendships along the way. She did not have a jealous bone in her body and was not envious of anyone! She loved to cook, bake, knit, sew and was an avid quilter. She loved to watch Jeopardy, and was especially phenomenal playing Wheel of Fortune. In her spare time, she was very adept at playing the stock market. We once asked mom how she got her middle name of Pearl. She said that when her mother gave birth to her, she reminded her of a pearl. The best thing about our gem of a mother was that she never stopped being a mother. She earned her "wings" so to speak until her final day and our entire family wishes her a safe trip to heaven to be with her many family members and friends. Virginia went to eternal rest, at peace with herself, on her couch in her cherished home. Lastly mom, we all loved you so much with all our hearts and know that we will never forget you and your beautiful spirit/memory will last forever. Many thanks to Wellbrook of South Bend and Beacon Home Care.

Our condolences on the passing of your beloved mother and aunt. I first remember your mother at our home. She was in the kitchen wiping dishes while my mother washed. I tried to help , but I was awfully little.
She was such a graceous person, and had only nice words for anyone.
I, Ruth, went to her home once, and she taught me how to knit. I made an afghan for my husband.
She was always warm and cordual. My mother thought the world of your mother.
George, Maxine , and I will forever remember her great spirit.

Dear Linda, Chris, Ted, and Paul. I happened to be looking at Welsheimer's obituaries due to a friend passing away at our church. I was so surprised to see the passing of your mom but happy to know that she lived a full life into her 90's. When I saw her picture it immediately brought me back to Sussex Drive and Coquillard School in the 60's. Please know we will keep you all in our prayers in the coming days.

Dear Linda, Chris (Gouda), Ted, and Paul,
Please accept our heartfelt and sincere sympathy regarding the passing of "Virg". We have good memories of her when we lived on Canterbury. We would walk around the block during the week and always stop and sit with her on the porch step. Linda, sometimes you would be out there also. Everything was a topic of conversation and we shared great laughter. When Dustin was born, she knitted a Christmas stocking for him which we always hung. Now that Dustin and Virg are gone, it does hold a very special meaning for us. Time goes by quickly and our lives are always changing. The loss of a loved one is never easy with happy and sad memories to cherish. We have learned anything can bring a tear to the eye. Again, we are very sorry and wish you all Peace, Love and Comfort. Babe and Debbie
