Virginia was a long time resident of Stockbridge, Mass. She worked as an RN for the late Edward Knight, MD, at his office on Main Street in Stockbridge. She then joined in the opening of The Suburban Internal Medicine in Lee, Mass., as an RN for Dr. Knight, Desmond Tivy, MD, William Baker, MD and Charles Stratton, MD, where she worked for many years.

In December of 1984 she moved, with her daughter Debbie, to Virginia Beach, Va. While there, she worked at Westminster Canterbury and Beth Shalom Nursing Facility until retiring in 1997.

Virginia was a supportive, loving and caring mother. She leaves three sons, David of Great Barrington, Mass., Jay (Chantal) of Stockbridge, Kevin (Kathy) of Toano, Va., and two daughters Debbie (Curtis) of Virginia Beach, and Laurie of Salem, New Hampshire. She also adored and loved her nine grandchildren and one great grandchild.

The family would like to thank the Freda H. Gordon Hospice and Palliative Care of Tidewater for their kindness and comfort to Virginia and her family during this time.

They would also like to express sincere gratitude and a very special thank-you to the entire staff at Sentara Rehabilitation and Care Center in Chesapeake. Especially, the team of Garden Springhouse for their kindness, devotion, and dedication to the care of their mother.
