Her special friends at work include Phebe Sheffield, Fay Finney, Shirley Hawkings, Glenda Pennington, and Gin Tibbett.

Along with keeping her husband, John, straight, she enjoyed spending time with her loved ones, especially her dog, Socks. In her free time, she enjoyed gardening and yard work. She also liked cooking for her family and canning fresh vegetables from the garden. Virginia enjoyed watching football, and her favorite teams were the Dallas Cowboys and the Ole Miss Rebels. She loved to sit and eat with her friends, and gossip with the gals. On a nice afternoon, she could be found listening to Alan Jackson on the radio, or reading a good book.
