Virginia L. (Thomas) Thorsen, 85, of Willington, CT passed away peacefully on Friday, May 13, 2016 at Woodlake at Tolland. Born in West Haven to the late Arthur and Charlotte (Grady) Thomas, she moved to RI as a young child when her father started working for the Providence Journal. She grew up in Cranston and graduated from Cranston High School. She lived in Johnston RI until her retirement when she moved to South Carolina with her son before finally returning to CT and settling in Willington eight years ago. Virginia was a hard working woman and was employed at the former Induplate Co. in North Providence for many years. She was an active member of the Willington Senior Center and enjoyed knitting and traveling especially her trips to Alaska and Ireland. Virginia was fascinated with Native American culture and spirituality and she collected many tribal artifacts over the years. A loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she will be dearly missed. She is survived by her son Thomas Thorsen and his wife Rita of Simpsonville, SC; her daughter Katherine Gregory and her husband John of Willington; her grandchildren Joshua Gregory, Andrew Thorsen and Renee Crane; and her great-grandchildren Connor, Rebecca, Olivia and Lucianna. Services and burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. Memorial donations can be made in her name to Woodlake at Tolland 26 Shenipsit Lake Rd.
