Virginia was a devoted grandmother of six children and nine greatgrandchildren with numerous nieces and nephews who loved her and nurtured her all the way to time of her passing.
Virginia’s profession was a realtor/broker in CA and in FL. Her sales record for the first year of her licensing allowed her to be inducted into the Million Dollar Club. She later became a broker and helped many young up and coming realtors learn the ropes.
She was an avid amateur genealogist and served on the leadership team for the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter in Brevard County. She enjoyed bowling in her younger years and was a frequent high score roller on various teams.
