Virginia Crossley



In case you missed it, Garth Lax shared the following sad news at the end of his first 2013 convention email message:


Virginia Crossley of Rochester Hills, Michigan, passed away
on October 23.  Virginia was one of the principal figures of the
Paper Doll world. An avid collector and a very active participant
in Paper Doll events, she played major roles in National Conventions,
particularly in the MidWest. Virginia will be missed by all of us.
For those who may wish to express sympathies, there is an on-line
guestbook at www.modetzfuneralhomes.com. (Go to Visitations,
then type Crossley in the Search Box, and you'll be at the Guestbook)

I didn't know Ginny Crossley well, but I have seen her collection referenced in guide books, and I've come to know people who knew her well, such as Elaine Price, also a knowledgeable collector.

"Dotty on Parade" was part of the Crossley collection that was auctioned a couple of years ago. To see more of the Crossley collection, click here.
