Virginia Lee Dechant

Virginia Lee Dechant, age 72, of Hays, Kansas, passed away on April 9, 2024, at Hays Medical Center. Born on January 1, 1952, in Hays to Virgil and Barbara (Pfeifer) Dreiling.

She was a seamstress at Stromgren in Hays. Despite facing the challenges brought by a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis at a young age Virginia remained steadfast in her pursuits, demonstrating a remarkable spirit. In her leisure time, Virginia found joy in simple pleasures. Thrift shopping and exploring yard sales brought excitement to her days, as did the companionship of her beloved fur baby, Bear. But perhaps her greatest source of happiness was found in the precious moments spent with her grandchildren. Whether it was babysitting or simply sharing in their laughter, Virginia cherished every opportunity to be with them.

She is survived by her son, Brian Dechant, of Hays; and her daughter, Michelle Schultz, of Russell, KS; her brother, Virgil Dreiling of Hays; her grandchildren, Ciera Pfanenstiel, Cassandra Guy, Lacy Herndon, Brittany Dechant, and Brandon Dechant. Additionally, she leaves behind great-grandchildren, Gage and Riggens Pfanenstiel, Brynlee, and Annabelle Guy, and Adrianne Clark.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Virgil and Barbara, and her sister, Jodi Blake.

A memorial service to honor Virginia's life will be held at a later date, with details forthcoming from Keithley Funeral Homes and Crematory-Brock’s Chapel 2509 Vine Hays, KS 67601.
