She was born in Grafton September 6, 1924, the daughter of Earl D. and Della (Smith) Chellis. She was raised in Grafton and Canaan and educated in area schools. Virginia met and married Albert "Bert" Vorron after high school. She worked at Briar Pipe and later at Hoyt's Electric in Penacook, retiring in the early 1970s.

Known as "Aunt Jinx" to all the neighborhood kids, she was a loving and doting mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who always kept her house full of special surprises for her little ones. She took great pride in her home and yard and particularly enjoyed working in her many flower gardens.
In addition to her parents, Virginia was predeceased by her husband in 1980; brothers Herman Chellis and Shirley "Stubby" Chellis; sisters Irene Chellis and Elizabeth "Nip" Terreault; and two sons who died in infancy.
