Obituaries » Petunia Osborne
Petunia Dinah Osborne, affectionately known as “Tunie”, was born on December 15, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York. She was the fourth child of the late Paul Osborne and Thelma Jane Faulkner Tubbs.
As a young child, her family relocated to Hurt, Virginia. She attended and graduated from Old Northside High in Gretna, Virginia. Her family relocated back to Virginia and, in 2006, Petunia followed shortly after retiring.
Petunia had a heart of gold. She cared more about others than she did herself. She deeply cared about her family. She was proud to be an Osborne. Her caring nature was evident in the profession she chose. She worked for Personal Touch Home Care as a Home Health Aide for many years. Petunia was a God-fearing woman. She was introduced to Jesus Christ at an early age. Her faith in the Lord was incredibly strong. She was a faithful and loyal servant until the very end. She was a member of Family Life Church in Lynchburg, Virginia.
She leaves to cherish her loving memories, her only child, son, Shawn Osborne, daughter-in- law, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
