Virginia was born in Canastota, N.Y. to George Austin Ely and Irma Sadie (Fox) Ely. She spent her early years in the Chittenango, Chittenango Station area. The family then moved to Canastota, N.Y. where she attended Canastota Schools, graduating in 1941. Virginia was also a graduate from Central City Business School, in Syracuse.

Virginia was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Oneida, N.Y. where in prior years she was active in many church functions. In school, Virginia was involved with sports, chorus, drama class, the KE Society, and also taught Sunday School, and sang in the choir. Virginia had a lovely voice and played the piano for friends and family. After high school, Virginia left with a cousin and friends to live and explore the west coast for several years. She loved to talk about her adventures, including attending live theater and concerts, including Radio City Music Hall and bands such as the "Ink Spots" while in California. She adored music, loved the big band sounds and was thrilled to have attended concerts, and met the member of the "Ink Spots" while in California. Virginia was ahead of her time in seeking knowledge, and being a forward thinker. Virginia will be remembered as a happy and social person who loved to learn and loved the English language. Virginia was very well read, and enjoyed writing editorials in the local Bee Journal, Dispatch, and the Syracuse Post Standard. She developed quite a following of readers, and due to her following, was asked to write a weekly column for the local paper. She chose the title of "Raging Couch Potato" as the title for her column, as she completed most of her reading and writing from the couch! As she aged her writing lessened in frequency, however she was always starting and thinking about a future column. In addition to the Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company in Syracuse, Virginia was employed with the Madison County Handicapped Children's Department, Oneida Limited, the former Glenwood Laundromat and many others. She volunteered with the Madison County Elder Care and other community functions. Virginia was a member of the AARP, Madison County League of Women voters, and she and her husband Richard supported numerous organizations for the environment, social injustice, and civil rights. Virginia was predeceased by the love of her life, Richard C. Hoppe on Feb. 28th of 2010. Virginia had a wonderful sense of humor, was a devoted wife, mother and actively involved with her grandchildren. She is survived by her daughter, Sarah H. Relyea of Canastota; a granddaughter, Andrea and Michael Shaw of Oneida, N.Y. and a grandson, Jeffrey A. Relyea of Canastota, N.Y; great-grandchildren, Anthony, Nathan, Natalie and Allison Shaw; one sister, Helen (Ely) Vickrey of Humboldt, Tenn.; one niece, two nephews, and several cousins. At Virginia's request there will be no calling hours. Virginia asked for a simple celebration for family, and the many friends she and Richard made over the years.
