Virginia loved the Lord and went to school to become an ordained minister. She served as a co-pastor with her husband, James, at several Leon County churches. Together they would minister to the lost and had the pleasure of leading many people to Christ. Virginia enjoyed singing in the choir. She owned a grand piano when her children were younger and spent many hours playing and singing. Even when she was stricken with dementia in her later years, Virginia would often sing songs walking up and down the hallways of the nursing home while visiting with her husband and family. In her younger years, Virginia enjoyed gardening, canning and was an expert seamstress, quilter and embroiderer.
