Virginia Rosser (Ginger) Obituary

Virginia Moore Rosser (Ginger) died in Vicksburg, MS, on Friday, November 3, after a decades long battle with breast cancer.  She was born in 1940, the daughter of Dr. James A. Moore and Sara Norvell Moore and grew up in Dyersburg, TN.  She was a graduate of Dyersburg High School and attended the University of Tennessee at Martin, then moved to Vicksburg in 1964. 

Ginger was the consummate free spirit and it was fitting that her birthday was also Earth Day!

She loved waterskiing, connecting with friends, design and lamp making, and was known as the Lamp Lady of Vicksburg, as she enjoyed fashioning lamps from wonderful objects and repairing lamps for her friends.  She had a flair for making things beautiful.  She worked as a realtor with Varner Real Estate and then at Peterson’s Art and Antiques in downtown Vicksburg, where her very dear co-workers were like family.. 

She was an Episcopalian, attended Cursillo, and was a long-time member of Church of the Holy Trinity in Vicksburg, where she served on the Altar Guild for 40+ years.

Ginger is survived by her three daughters, Mary Scott Shepherd (Tommy) of Jackson, Sara Jane Parker (Gene) of Vicksburg, and Ginny Abraham (Bobby) of Oxford, and by three grandsons, Banks Shepherd (Jenna) of Winston Salem, NC, Martin Shepherd (Randle) of Nashville, TN, and Luke Abraham of Oxford, and one great-granddaughter, Polly Shepherd, as well as her two nephews, Louis (Cindy) Fumbanks and Jimmy Fumbanks.  She was preceded in death by her parents and her older sister, Jane Moore Fumbanks.

A funeral service in celebration of Ginger’s life will be held Monday, November 6, 2023, at 11:00 am at The Church of the Holy Trinity in Vicksburg, with visitation in the Parish Hall at 10:00 am prior to the service.
