Obituary

Virginia Reaves Greene was born in Brooklyn, New York on November 10, 1945 to Parents Anna Greene and Leroy Reaves. Virginia was the fourth born out of six children, where she grew up with three brothers and two sisters. In her early life Virginia enjoyed working with her hands where she made clothing for friends and family.

While enjoying life, Virginia went on to have three beautiful children in Brooklyn, NY. The oldest David Reaves “Big David” Middle Regina Reaves “Bean”, and the Youngest Ruperto Fuentes “Smiley”. Virginia worked tirelessly to provide for her children. For a short time, Virginia worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yard as a welder, and also contracted with the City of New York to climb and weld city bridges. Virginia would eventually be employed as a Metal Work Mechanic by the Department of Sanitation, City of New York. For many years, Virginia was noted for being the only female within the Sanitation Department to hold a Metal Work Mechanic title, which she took pride in, and often boasted about. In 2011, Virginia retired from the Sanitation Department.


In her spare time, Virginia loved to sew, crochet, and watch movies. Virginia had a special kind of love for daily Soap Operas and often yelled at anyone who changed the channel of her preset recording. However, Virginia’s true passion was volunteering her time with her extended family at the Shorinjiryu Kenryukan Karate School located in Brooklyn, NY. It is there that Virginia enrolled her son, grandsons and great granddaughter to take part in karate classes. Virginia’s dedication to the Karate school also allowed her to witness her son (Smiley) become a black belt in Martial Arts. Virginia was knowing for her kind heart, forgiving and giving ways sometimes she gave too much, at times her very last.

The Lord called Virginia home on November, 11, 2019 one day after her 74th birthday. Virginia is survived by her older brother Alexander Greene Reaves, two sons David Reaves, Ruperto Fuentes, Six grandchildren Raliek Reaves, Antoine Reaves, David Hudson, Derrick Reaves, Robin Fuentes and Virginia Fuentes seven great grand kids, many nieces and nephews and a host of friends and family.
