Virginia passed away in her sleep on March 13 in Kenwood, at the age of 87. She is survived by three sons, five grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. She was married in 1949 to husband Elmer, who passed in 2008, sharing many happy decades.

Virginia was an avid folk dancer in younger days, where she met Elmer. In the 1970s and 80s she became involved in food service, first as a volunteer at a hospital, then later as a hospital cook, and then a manager of school kitchens in Sonoma County.

In the 90s, her interest was fabric art. She was a member of the Redwood Stitchers and the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild.

Virginia taught us the most important things. The rest we had to discover ourselves.
