She graduated from Antioch High School in 1941.

Attended Dominican College until her parents moved to Sacramento and bought Bachman Printing and Box, which became Kramer Carton Company, where Virginia worked with her father.

Virginia loved to travel the United States and Europe. 

She enjoyed antiquing and “junking” …Loved a “FIND”!

She also enjoyed Tahoe… laying on the beach and floating on her raft.

She was affiliated with Young Ladies Institute, the USO, Alpha Zeta Beta, Mercy Guild, Loyola Guild (2 times President) Soroptimist Club and Assistance League (Sapphires).

 She was always meticulously dressed, known in her later years for her beautiful scarves and jewelry. People were always surprised at her age.
