Obituary For Virginia Allene Jacobs Tynes

Virginia Allene Jacobs Tynes passed away peacefully in her home in Birmingham, AL on June 26, 2022 following a brief illness. She was born to George William Jacobs and Margaret Avis Freeman Jacobs in West Point, GA on November 8, 1936.

She graduated from West Point High School in 1954, where she was a cheerleader and vice-president and salutatorian of her graduating class. During her senior year, she went on a blind date with Hubbard Armstrong Tynes, an Auburn mechanical engineering student from Birmingham, AL. They discovered that they both loved tennis, waterskiing and quail, dove and duck hunting. She loved riding horses and he loved racing and collecting motorcycles. She attended North Georgia College in Dahlonega, GA and he graduated from Auburn. They became engaged and were married on May 13, 1955 in the First Baptist Church of West Point. They were married for 37 years until Hubbard’s passing in 1992. Together they raised 3 children and as a family enjoyed all those interests that originally drew them together. She supported their family as a homemaker and managed the active school and athletic schedules of their children. She chaired and co-chaired fundraisers for the private school they attended. She and Hubbard played in many doubles and mixed doubles club championship tennis matches and taught dozens of friends and relatives to water ski.

She was always an active member of her church and during her lifetime spent in West Point and Birmingham, was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, West Point Presbyterian Church, The Church of the Resurrection (West Point) and currently, of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Homewood. She was an accomplished pianist and seamstress in her younger years. Throughout her life, she was an avid gardener and reader and was a member of garden and study clubs in both West Point and Birmingham. She loved working as a volunteer at Grandview Medical Center since its opening and was thankful to its team of physicians and staff who cared for her in her final illness. She inspired her family, friends and medical providers with her graciousness, her courage and her confident faith in her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her brother, George William Jacobs, Jr. (Sherralyn) of West Point, GA, her children, Thomas Hubbard Tynes (Karen) of Mountain Brook, AL, Lynn Armstrong Tynes Nickoley (Ross) of Georgetown, TN and Nancy Jacobs Tynes Peterman (Mark) of Chesterfield, MO. She was adored by her grandchildren, Amanda Tynes Nickoley Griffin (Alvin Daniel Griffin, SSgt USAF), Austin Armstrong Tynes, Franklin Alan Nickoley (Chandler), Samuel Ryan Peterman (Emily), Dr. Jordan Marie Tynes (fiancé Joshua) and Ashley Grace Peterman. She loved her 3 great-grandchildren, Alvin Ryan Griffin, Colten Daniel Griffin and Michael Fischer Nickoley.
