Grandma Virginia had a very warm and outgoing personality. She loved people and made friends easily. She enjoyed cooking, camping, boating, Wendover trips, shopping at the DI, football, and soaking up the sun especially by a pool. Always full of surprises. She loved to give surprises, you never knew what random surprise she meticulously picked for you, sometimes making you laugh and always a reasoning behind it.
