Virginia loved life and most of all loved her family and friends. She and Darwin along with many family members and friends shared several memories at their cabin "Camp" on the Cedar River. Virginia loved to watch or listen to Hawkeye basketball games, play cards and wear her lipstick and jewelry. She was a very caring, loving and gracious lady who loved to laugh and was loved by all.
