Virginia moved to Stamford in 1973 from Massachusetts and was a devoted member of St. Leo's Parish and a volunteer traditional choir member. She enjoyed their yearly trip to Vermont. She was also an active member of the St Leo's Senior's (previously Treasurerer) and went on many trips with them. She worked part time at the Stamford Hospital years ago and also at the Giftique store. She also belonged to the Chesterfield condominium clubhouse group and she loved to play cards – first in Massachusetts and then in Bridgeport with her sister and cousins and also in Stamford. She loved to feed her family especially spaghetti and meatballs and many different homemade desserts – mostly pies, pumpkin bread and Christmas cookies. She also loved to travel and occasionally won at the casinos. She had a green thumb with her many plants and was a loyal Red Sox fan and boy did she love her red Oldsmobile.
