Virginia 'Jinny' Hyatt

VINCENNES — It is with great sadness that the family of Virginia (Jinny) Ann Hyatt, 77, announce that she lost her battle with cancer and passed away Saturday at home. She was a loyal, dedicated and loving wife, mother and grandmother.

Jinny volunteered and served her community and family with selfless passion. She was known for her boundless energy, generous service, faith and kind heart.

Hyatt; her four children, Robert Hyatt Jr. and wife Rebecca, Scott Hyatt and wife Susan, Amy Murillo, Beth Flaningam and husband Shawn; and her 10 amazing grandchildren, Ian and Carson Hyatt, Ryan and Emily Hyatt, Connor, Ben and Maddie Flaningam, Alex, Sam, and Kristin Murillo.
