My grandfather remarried before I was born. Her name was Virginia – she was this tiny little thing, with a strong voice and even stronger opinion on life.
I remember her being very healthy, and a blessing for my grandfather.
My grandfather passed away in 2004, and sadly, we lost her to cancer just a few years ago. I miss them both dearly. I wish they could have meet my girls, but I know they’re watching over us now.
Last night, I had this urge to start searching for any family history I could find. See, my grandfather was a Holucoust survivor and was never able to find any of his family. It’s not the first time I’ve tried searching, and not my last either.
After my step-grandmother passed away, my mom mentioned something about her being a stripper, or something like that. I remember hearing that when I was younger too, but never thought anything of it.
Well, the internet is a crazy thing now. There are many images and even YouTube videos of her. Some that have been added in just the last few years. I mentioned something on Facebook last night, and you guys said I should share who she is, or was.
Her name was Virginia “Ding Dong” Bell.
These were the least explicit photos I found. The video below is a burlesque show she did at the Roxy. There are quite a few on YouTube, if you search her name.
Yep, that’s my grandma. She was a fox! I can see why my grandfather wanted to marry her. Okay, so they were both much older with young children, but you get the idea. ;)
Do you have any famous relatives?
