DEMOPOLIS – Joining the Bryan Whitfield Memorial Hospital volunteer auxiliary January 1, 2005, Virginia Kidd is one of the newest Pink Ladies on the block.

“I knew some of the ladies on the auxiliary and it always seemed like they were having a good time,” Kidd said.

Thus, Kidd joined Demopolis’ very own Pink Ladies after she retired from what used to be Commercial Bank.

“First I worked at the front desk, now I work in the gift shop,” she said. “I was co-chairman of the jewelry sale and we raised a lot of money for the hospital.”

According to Kidd, the gift shop’s current main task is getting merchandise ready for the Christmas holidays now that the sale is over.

The 63 year old was born and raised in Demopolis and is a graduate of Demopolis High School.

She is married to Robert Kidd, co-owner of Kidd-Robbins Funeral Home, and the couple has one daughter.

Kidd said both she and her husband enjoy traveling to Alabama football games.

“We are big Alabama fans,” she said.

When it isn’t football season, Kidd said she enjoys reading and serving her duties as an active member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Demopolis and the local music and study clubs.

“I stay busy,” she said. “It’s a wonder I even had time to have a full-time job.”

Although Kidd was busy before joining the Pink Ladies and has added another demanding group to her list with her new membership, she said plans to stay a Pink Lady “for a while.”
