She was active in Sweet Adelines, was a long-time member of the North Bend Birthday Club, attended PTA meetings, and loved being a mom. After Virginia and Richard retired to Ellensburg in 2006, they enjoyed taking many lengthy daytrips via car.

She is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Richard; sons Steven (Lisa), Terry (Gail), Douglas (Denise); sister Patricia Young; brother Philip Johnson; sister-in-law Juanita Weiss; brother-in-law Donald (Marcia) McConkey; grandchildren Erin (Justin Floyd) McConkey; Scott (Maiara) McConkey; and Ahnya, Mitchell, and Issabella McConkey.
