After her divorce she headed south to Imperial Beach, California for several years to be with her sister before returning to Lebanon, Oregon and settling down. She remained a resident of Lebanon, Oregon for approximately the last 40 years.

Virginia worked mostly in retail sales and management, she also owned “Yard Friends & Company,” a ceramic shop on North Santiam. She loved hummingbirds and was known for rescuing animals. Over the years she rescued hundreds of stray cats and dogs, when possible would help to find them forever homes. Besides helping animals, she would also crochet baby blankets and afghans for hospitals and the F.I.S.H. organization.
