Virginia was a supportive military spouse; a devoted mother and grandmother; an avid reader, collector of epitaphs and a lifelong learner; a talented artist and published poet; a quick wit who loved to evoke laughter in others; an engaging listener to strangers; and a faithful child of God who studied the scriptures throughout her life.
