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 was born Jan. 25, 1936, in Washington, the daughter of Nellie and James McGrath. She married the love of her life, Bob Hyatt ,on Sept. 25, 1960. She graduated from St. Mary’s School of Nursing in 1957 and was the assistant head nurse of pediatrics at Good Samaritan Hospital until she retired in 1997. Jinny was an active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, and the recipient of the Mother Theresa Service Award in 2013. She spent most of her free time enjoying her family and grandchildren, swimming in her pool, playing cards (with the Methodist ladies) and was very active in her church. Jinny volunteered and served her community and family with selfless passion. She was known for her boundless energy, generous service, faith and kind heart.

Jinny is survived by her husband of 53 years, Robert C. 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.
