She was an avid bridge player, a member of the St. James Episcopal Church of Midvale, and an active member of her local PEO chapter. Virginia is survived by her only child Virginia (Ginny) and son-in-law Craig Smith, grandsons Jason and Jeremy Smith, and her two sisters Katherine Croghan of Nevada, Iowa and Marian Barger of Denison, Texas in addition to numerous nieces, nephews and friends who loved her. She joins her parents and beloved husband Fred who passed on before her. The family would like to thank all those who helped with her care and visited her in her final days.
