Virginia was strong in her faith and a devoted member of the Catholic Church her entire life. She will always be remembered for her strong work ethic. She worked many years at McCains and could always be found in the berry fields and potato fields. She had a strong love for the outdoors and was often found in her garden. She loved family dinners and was always cooking, baking or putting something down. Family was everything to her and she had a unique way of making each and everyone of her children and grandchildren feel special. Although she had many interests, she could often be found knitting (she made countless Christmas socks), playing Bingo, and always within reach of a deck of cards.
