Age 88, a lifelong Joliet resident, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 27, 2019 at Senior Star at Weber Place.  Born on May 24, 1931, she was the daughter of the late John R. and Cecile (nee Bannon) Condon.  Virginia graduated as Valedictorian from Saint Francis Academy, Class of 1949. She was awarded a full scholarship to the College of St. Francis, which she chose to turn down.  She spent her working career at Blockson Chemical, Montgomery Wards, Seron Manufacturing and lastly Bergner’s/Carson Pirie Scott in the office.  Virginia was an avid bowler with Town and County Seniors.  Her passion was baking and her specialties included cookies, fudge squares, cream puffs and Heath Bar coffeecake.  She loved to share her sweet treats with her family, friends and even the repairmen.
