Obituary of Virginia Lee James

Virginia Lee James passed away at her home in Soquel, California on April 25, 2010. Her work here on earth is done and she is now at rest in the serenity and love of our heavenly Father's arms. Virginia lived in Santa Cruz for the last 50 years, where she attended school, married and raised her children. She was an astute business woman, and entrepreneur. She co-founded two successful businesses, Ahead of Our Time, a beauty salon which she and her partner operated for over thirty years, and Dietle James a fashion boutique which she and her other partner initially created in Scotts Valley, and ultimately located in Capitola. Virginia was honest, caring, loving and passionately generous. In her business endeavors this approach to life created the success she experienced, and produced lifelong friendships which she treasured always. Virginia was married to Omar James. Virginia and her former husband Jim Amadon were blessed with two sons, and three grandchildren, Robert Amadon her oldest son, who lives in Las Vegas, and his two daughters Taylor Amadon and Logan Amadon, and Bryan Amadon, and his son Mason Amadon who live in Santa Cruz. She truly cherished her family above all else, as the most blessed and sacred gift of her life. Interment will be private.
