Members of Month: Nathan & Virginia McKinney

Nathan and Virginia were long time residents of Morrisonville, IL until 2010 when they moved to the area to help their son and his wife start up the Bethel Baptist Church in Taylor Springs.

Before retirement, Nathan worked as a Christian County Highway Mechanic, and Virginia was the head cook at Morrisonville school. Together they have two sons, Randy and Greg; two nieces whom they raised, Crystal and Mary; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

The McKinneys have walked daily for many years. Before, when they lived in Morrisonville, they would walk every morning outside if weather permitted. Now, they enjoy being able to walk any day despite weather conditions, and do normally walk 2 miles 5-6 times a week here at Fusion.

Currently, they are looking forward to a church revival coming up in May, and this summer they plan on staying busy in their garden where they raise potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, and more.
