Virginia (Gin) Chenoweth Motsinger, age 43, of Richmond, VA went home to be with the Lord on October 22, 2019, in her home. She is survived by her husband Jeremy Motsinger; Daughter Kinsey Motsinger; Parents Darl & Linda Chenoweth; Brother CJ Chenoweth; Sister Eleanor Stobbs and numerous others. She Graduated from Virginia Tech in 1999 and went on to get her CPA license in 2010.
Gin has fought pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) a rare cancer her whole adult life. In August 2013 she had a second abdominal surgery in 6 weeks (her 6th total). She had this surgery because a staph infection grew in her abdomen from the first surgery weeks earlier. Once they had her open, they found there was nothing they could do as the infection was too bad. She was sent home with weeks to live. She went to her knees and gave her life to Jesus Christ with all her heart and soul. The staph infection left her, and the good Lord gave her 6 more years. Even though the years were hard, and she had another surgery she got to experience being a mother the best part of her life. She dealt with all this with such grace rarely ever complaining and never blamed our good Lord but praised him for what she did have. She is an inspiration and her fight against cancer for all these years is what helped turn my (her husband) heart to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is in him that I will draw strength to go on and be the father to my daughter that she deserves and a man of Christ that Gin would want me to be. Gin’s own words “Do not say I lost my fight with cancer” as one who is in Christ Jesus our Lord can never loose there fight with cancer. Cancer did not beat my wife. My wife stood up to it for her whole adult life and though the cancer may have taken her flesh it never got her soul.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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 8:35-39 ESV
And cancer never will.
