Virginia R. Haines, 89, of McAlisterville, passed away at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at her residence surrounded by her family.
Born on December 7, 1931 in Turbett Township, Juniata County, she is the daughter of the late Joseph and Jennie (Bitner) Ard.
On August 28, 1971 she married her surviving husband, Charles L. Haines with whom she was blessed to share almost 50 years of marriage.
She is survived by her children, Kimberly A. Dressler and her husband Eric of Mifflintown, Barry Landis and his wife Jeanie of McAlisterville, and Rick Landis and his wife Gayle of Mifflintown; eight grandchildren, McKala Dressler and her companion Nathan Ehrenzeller, Madison Dressler, Tammy Marshall and her husband Paul, Scott Landis and his wife Mandy, Brad Landis and his wife Lindsey, Tyler Landis and his wife Staci, Mike Landis and his wife Brenda, and Brett Landis; twelve great grandchildren; two sisters, Joyce Fox of Middletown and Grace Schoffstall of Somerset; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one brother, Bill Ard and three sisters, Mary Jane Ard, Nancy Fleisher, and Carol Reed.
Earlier in life, Virginia was employed as a Seamstress with the Shellenberger’s Dress Factory in McAlisterville and later was proud to be a homemaker.
She loved tending to her garden, chickens, and camping; however, her greatest joy was spending time with her family.
Public Graveside Services will be held at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at the East Salem Cemetery with Pastor Jodi L. Strawser officiating.

I married Virginia's oldest son in 1967. I will always remember Virginia as some one who was gifted in so many ways. She was always so good at making her home look beautiful & she worked hard to make sure everything was well taken care of. She worked hard all her life. She had the most beautiful garden & canned lots and lots of things. At Christmas time there were always the very most wonderful home made cookies, fudge, & often times hand dipped home made candy! Her house at Christmas time was always breathtakingly beautiful! She loved babies & children. I could go on and on, but will finish with this: When my mother died, Virginia hugged me and told me not to cry - she said that she would be my mother now. I loved her for that. Because of her, I married the love of my life. Because of her, I have 3 children that we love beyond all else. We will miss you, mom. And pray God will comfort all of her family! She was a one of a kind woman ! And that is for sure. Love to our beloved mother, with love, from Barry and Jeannie Landis
