Emma Douglas


Ms. Emma Virginia Croswell Dorn Douglas was born Sept. 14, 1917, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, a daughter to the late Rev. Roger Thomas and Mary Ethel Croswell. After living for 104 years and 10 months, she entered the divine presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 27, 2022.

At the tender age of 14, she accepted Christ in her life; from that point on, she was dedicated to His word. She received her certification from World Christian Ministries in 1998, becoming an evangelist. Ms. Virginia, as she was affectionately called, was a blessing in the lives of those she met. She served as the organist at Mt. Zion for 50 years before she retired.

Many knew her as “Ma Ginny” or Virginia.

Funeral services were held Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022, at Mt. Zion Independent Church, with the Rev. Dr. Michael O. Press officiating. Interment was in the John Wesley Cemetery, Marion Station, Md.

Her 100-plus years of an exemplary life leave countless cherished memories by three children, Ronald Dorn, Andrew Dorn, and Valeria Jones; a granddaughter that she raised as her own, Andrea Marshall; a nephew that was like a son to her, David Corbin; best friend, Josephine Douglas; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, other relatives, and close friends.

Arrangements are by the Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Accomac.
