VIRGINIA MAY SHUSTER Born in Ashland, Kansas on June 17, 1910, Virginia passed away in Riverside, California on October 22, 2011 at the grand age of 101.

Married to Gentry Shuster in 1927, they moved to Kansas City, Missouri where Virginia continued her career as a photographer. When the depression and the heat got them, they moved to Alaska, where for the next 20 years Virginia worked as a photographer, and later as an office manager for Safeway Airways, a company her bush pilot husband started, where she also sold airplanes and motorcycles. During her spare time she wrote many short stories, articles and poems which were published in various magazines. Also, many of her photographs were used as magazine covers, In 1956 Virginia moved to Riverside and became one of the original employees for the Harris Co. at the Riverside Plaza. Since Harris Co. didn't sell airplanes or motorcycles, she worked in the china, crystal, and silver department where she became their prize-winning sales lady until her retirement in 1982. Virginia was very proud to be a charter member of Wesley United Methodist Church.
