She later married Ward Haub, and they were married for 12 years until his death in 2011.

Virginia worked at the Fine Shirt Factory and then later retired from ICI in Charlestown, Ind. Virginia was quick witted, and you never had to wonder what she was thinking because she would always tell you. She enjoyed crocheting and spending time with her family.
