Virginia Margaret Belluso, 85, of Lawrenceville / Decatur, Ga., died September 23, 2013. She was the only child of John Fred and Evelyn Wiltshire Fehr. Her parents were musicians and as a child she was an aspiring instrumentalist, learning to play the violin at age 4. She married her husband of 66 years, Nicholas M. Belluso, and became a convert to Catholicism. Prayer to God was central in her life. She was devoted to the Lord and His Mother, Mary and was a firm believer in miracles. Many of her years were spent assisting others through various parishes as a Eucharistic Minister and working with the poor. She wanted a large family, and as a mother she was tireless in her efforts for her children. Her support is best described in Corinthians 13:, 4-7. "Love is patient , kind and does not seek its own interests. It is not jealous. It does not rejoice over wrongdoing, but rejoices with the Truth." As a wife, she assisted her husband with his Tax Business on Wesley Chapel Rd. In later years, she opened her own office on Killian Hill where she had many loyal and appreciative clients. She was preceded in death by her beloved daughter, Rebecca and her husband, Nicholas. She is survived by her sons, John Ella Belluso, Andy Gerri Belluso, Tom Belluso, Nick, Jr. Jenny Belluso; daughters, Deborah Joel Gunnells, Kammy Mike Alfonso, Kiri Rodney Cooper.
