Virginia attended Leroy High School and graduated in May of 1953. Soon after graduation, she married the love of her life, Wilbert (Bo) Howard. Once married, she began her career as an administrative assistant working at Geigy and later at Olin.
After her career, she was free to pursue her passions in life. Because of her creative nature, and love of beautiful craftsmanship, she developed into quite the artist.
