Virginia Chenoweth Motsinger
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.

❤️FLY HIGH GIN ❤️
Gin was such a sweet soul and she touched my life with her devotion to our Lord. I will always remember asking her to join me for coffee not knowing she was ill, and being blessed with her friendship ever since. She carried herself with such grace and in great faith. My walk with the Lord was strengthened by her life and how she lived with dignity and gentleness.
My heart goes out to you Jeremy and Kinsey. I know the pain of grief. It isn’t that you ‘lost’ her..as she is definitely Victorious in her salvation through Christ. The physical separation is oh so difficult. That we live and honor the person we will meet again by living our lives being the best example we can be for others is a precious gift. Find joy in your love and faith, and remember how to laugh and keep your heart light. We have today. I love you. Aunt Shelley
My Love, my family’s love, and Dan’s love are certainly with y’all and known by Gin. My Joy is great as is my grief. Love you. Xo
Ginny, you are loved and missed greatly! Thank you for the blessing you were to your family and friends. Your faithfulness and strength will continue to be a witness to the hope we have in Christ Jesus! Until we see you again!
Ginny I will miss you! You’re a great friend! I love you !!thanks for being my you!
So many childhood memories include Ginny… such a wonderful friend with such an infectious smile… my thoughts and prayers for all her family and friends and the countless others who smile with her memories…
I will lift up mine eyes to the hills from which comets my help, my help cometh from the Lord, the Lord which made Heaven and Earth…Psalm 121: 1-2
I am Ms. Lauren, children’s storyteller and craft teacher at North Park. I am so deeply sorry and saddened of the passing of Ms. Gin. She would bring Kinsey to crafts and just to visit and later as she was transitioning her mother and I became really close when she would bring Kinsey and we would play games and read books and do crafts for the many hours they were there. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I would love to take Kinsey out for lunch or even just hang out with her at the library sometimes. I love her very much and just want to continue to be there for her. May God continue to give you all peace and comfort during this time.
Ginny, still devastated by the loss of such a great woman, even though I know we lost touch after high school. Prayers are with your husband and daughter and parents at their time of need.
I have learned from Virginia so much; I have received so much more than I tried to give, I apologize I couldn’t do more…….
You did more for Ginny than you may ever realize. You extended her life by years!!! Which allowed her to be a mother to my sweet niece Kinsey, and allowed her family members many more beautiful memories with her. Ginny thought the world of you and missed you very much when you had to Part ways. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such good care of my sister for as long as you were able to.
My beautiful girl. The heart of an angel. Thank you for blessing my life. I gained a very gracious and an amazing daughter when you joined my son in marriage. I will miss so many things about you, and will rejoice with you when we meet again. I Love You.
This breaks my heart that I, literally, am just hearing of Gin’s passing. We live in the same neighborhood (I once served on our HOA Board) and met at a neighborhood party some years ago. Saw and chatted with her again (met her daughter) at another neighborhood get together about three years ago. She and Jeremy are the nicest! This condolence is LATE but I felt moved to at least convey to Jeremy and daughter heartfelt sympathy on my behalf and that of the Ashbury community.
