Virginia was one of three children born to Matt Herbert and Lillie June Timperley in Irvington, Nebraska. Her siblings were Phyllis June and Edward Abbott.

Virginia was married to James Arthur Polhemus on December 9, 1945 in Omaha, Nebraska. Her children were Jane Anne, James Arthur, Jr., Mark Frederick, and Mathias William. She and her family moved to Pasadena, Texas in the 50's. She was divorced in the late 1960's and did not remarry.

Virginia died at home alone, of heart failure. A neighbor noticed she hadn't accepted her meal delivery and phoned the police, who discovered her body. The investigating officers found no information as to who might have been the next of kin, so her children didn't learn of her death until a few days later when a son stopped by and was informed by the neighbor.

Rest in peace, Aunt Virginia.
