After graduating from Richlands High School in Virginia, she worked in Marion, Virginia, at a hosiery factory. After Virginia met her first husband, "Gene", she moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked at the Naval Annex as a secretary until Gene was transferred to Denver, Colorado, with the Glenn L. Martin Company. At that point, they married and moved to Denver. During the following years, she was a homemaker and wife, raising 3 children until Gene passed away in 1972. After his passing, she again worked as a secretary.
In 1975, she married Ellwood Richardson and moved to Slidell, Louisiana. She was a homemaker. They moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and then back to Littleton, Colorado. Ellwood passed away in 2008.
Virginia enjoyed spending time with her family, especially with her grandchildren. They were her world, and she spent as much time with them as possible watching movies, reading books, coloring, and generally doing anything they asked her to do. Virginia had a large circle of friends who she saw regularly. She often traveled to Virginia to visit family and remained very close to them all. She enjoyed gardening and raised beautiful roses and wonderful potted gardens. Some of her hobbies included needlepoint, stained glass, knitting, collecting Department 56 Christmas Villages, Beanie Babies, and reading. Virginia was a very giving and caring person, spending a great deal of time caring for others who needed help or a friendly visit. Virginia was a member of Littleton United Methodist Church and attended as long as she was able.
