Virginia “Gin” Ann North, 68, of Laurel, passed away peacefully at her home in Laurel on Thursday, January 14, 2021. She was born April 4, 1952 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a daughter of the late Helen Welsh Taylor. Virginia worked for many years as a baker, first for Mister Donut and more recently for Dunkin’ Donut. During her career she worked in Wilmington, Salisbury and Seaford and had a reputation for making the best donuts around and worked all night to bake 127 dozen donuts each night to distribute. She stayed true to her Catholic roots and remained steadfast in her religion through the good times and bad.

Phelps and Angela Bednar (Michael); sons, Paul Franklin North, III, John S. North and Jerry Wayne Phippin, Jr.; grandchildren, Tyler Mooney, Michael Fuller, Brandon Phippin, Christopher Kirby, Jared Mooney, Aaron Phippin, Evin Phelps, Emily Phippin, Megan Phelps and Laree Slaby; and a sister, Helen Walsack. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews; and her beloved dog, “Joe,” who also misses her dearly. In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by a son, Eric J. North; a grandson, Paul Franklin North, IV; her twin sister, Pat Ollock; and brothers, Hughy Taylor, Christopher Taylor and Tommy Taylor. Services will be private.
