Her husband's career moves resulted in residences in Kansas, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and a former residence in Barrington, R.I., from 1956 to 1966, when her husband was director of research with Fram Corp. in Pawtucket.

She played the cello in the Barrington Symphony and was a member of the DAR.

They enjoyed sailboat racing and race committee work at the Fort Worth Boat Club, where they were involved in the Skipperettes program, and many other club activities. Virginia was a docent at the Kimbell Art Museum. She was a lover of music, an accomplished pianist and, with her husband, enjoyed Fort Worth Symphony concerts, opera and the Van Cliburn competition performances. She traveled the world and enjoyed island sailboat charters with her family.
