HAMPTON, Va. -- Virginia Sullivan McAllister "Dinny," 1935-2018, passed away on February 8, 2018.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, William E. McAllister (Mac); and her parents, Hal Norman Sullivan and Barbara Anne Sullivan.

Gilliland; her great-grandson, Waylon Edward Wagner; a beloved niece, Betsy McAllister of Hampton, Virginia; her much loved dog, Zoey; and multiple family and friends in Paducah, Kentucky.

Dinny was her children's biggest fan, never missing a ballgame, dance recital or school function.

Dinny graduated from Columbia College and loved being an Army wife. She was a past president of the Officer's Wives Club and the Altar Guild of the Chapel of the Centurion at Ft. Monroe. She was part of the Committee that was instrumental in the installation of the "Ruth Window" at the Chapel Casemate on Ft. Monroe.
