After Virginia graduated from Balboa High School, San Francisco, CA in 1935 she moved with her family to Bellevue, WA and in 1940 received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Washington, where she was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and became an avid Husky fan from then on.  She excelled in interior design at the UW, which led to a long career as an Interior Designer in the Seattle area.

She was preceded in death by her husband Jerome in 1969, son John in 1988, granddaughter Kelly in 2005, and sister Marjorie Keeler in 1998.

Her family meant the world to her and she loved it when we all got together.  She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
