Virginia was born and lived in Camas, WA, with her brothers Joe and Ben and sisters Amy, Lorene and Peggy.
She attended Clark College and graduated from Oregon State University. She began her teaching career in California and in the early 1960's moved to the farm in Ridgefield, WA and continued teaching eventually retiring from Ridgefield High School. After retiring she moved to La Center and was very active volunteering her time with the La Center Library and Ridgefield Plank house to name a few. She enjoyed participating in garden, bunco and friendship clubs. Virginia was a farm girl at heart and loved to be with her family, help her friends, take care of her animals, garden, and bake. When visiting, you most often left with food or a plant. She was a Mother and role model to many and a Friend to all.
