Virginia Call

Virginia Call is celebrating her 90th birthday. She was born on Jan. 22, 1930, in Williston, North Dakota, to Frank and Chris (Alexander) Prim. The family moved to Lynden when Virginia was 12; she went to Northwood and Lynden schools and graduated from Bellingham High. She has been a church and The Firs volunteer, living on Lake Whatcom for 65 years. She was married to Donald (Tony) Call for 66 blessed years, from 1949 to his passing in 2015. Daughter Kristy (Howard) Milewski is of Bellingham, son Thomas Call of Ferndale; and Virginia has five grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She has a living sibling, Wayne Prim. She attributes her longevity to "faith, a wonderful husband, the love of family and friends, and a good cup of coffee in the morning." There will be a family dinner celebration at the Bellingham Country Club.
