Virginia Louise Mobley Dumas

Virginia Louise Mobley Dumas, 92, of Port Lavaca, went home to be with Jesus, Sunday, June 30, 2019.

She was born August 10, 1926 in Brownwood.

Virginia was a longtime resident and small business owner with her husband John Dumas. The inseparable couple owned Dumas Used Cars and Drop It & Lock It in Port Lavaca.

She was the spark in any room she entered. Her smile, laugh and pure joy of being around her family was contagious.

Virginia loved her family more than anything else. She was there for little events, big events and if she wasn’t there, she was sure to call or send you the best hand written card or letter.

She and John were members of the First Presbyterian Church of Port Lavaca. She was a woman of faith.

Virginia is preceded in death by her husband Johnnie “John” Elbron Dumas, parents William Henry Mobley and Evelyn Juanita Martin Mobley and great-granddaughter Alaina Barecky.

She is survived by her son Duwayne Dumas and wife Tisha, of Beeville; daughter Cathy Stapp and husband Paul, of Port Lavaca; brother Billy Mobley and wife Myrtle, of Stephenville; and sister Wanda Solley, of Stephenville; grandchildren, Chris Dumas and wife Jenny, of San Antonio; Jason Dumas and wife Cari, of San Antonio; Ashley Barecky and husband Aaron, of Port Lavaca and Ross Stapp and wife Samantha, of Port Lavaca.

Virginia is survived by nine great-grandchildren, Tyler, Dylan and Jordyn Dumas, Sarah and Lyndsey Dumas, Anna and Allison Barecky and Kenley and Rylee Stapp.

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
