Virginia was raised in Roslindale, MA by her father (Ralph Stanley Miller) and step-grandmother, “Nana” because her mother (Alice C. Whittemore) died in childbirth when Virginia was age 4. She raised her family in Stoughton, MA. Since 1973, Virginia resided in Westminster, MA. Her retreat and legacy was her family cabin in Limerick, ME.
Her education included five years at Simmons College in Boston resulting in an RN and Bachelors degree. Later in life, Virginia switched to teaching. She earned a Masters of Education from the then named Fitchburg State College (Fitchburg University) in 1975; proving you are never too old to learn and inspiring others to further their education. Her forays into expanding her knowledge and skills included participating in far too many classes and seminars to list here.
Her work experience included working for Milton Hospital as an RN in the Emergency Room, CCU, and more. When she became a teacher at Montachusett Vocational Technical School in Fitchburg MA, she would work part-time on the weekends at Birchwood Manor Nursing Home to maintain her nursing skills.
Most recently her activity calendar included participating 3 days a week in the Circle of Artists in Westminster, MA. COA is an organization which encourages artists of all abilities to come and improve their skills by sharing with each other. Virginia took violin lessons weekly and was a member of the Fitchburg State Community Orchestra where she played second and third violin. This Orchestra is comprised of students, faculty, and community members who practice once a week and perform various concerts in the area.
