Virginia was working at the Dream Theater in Russell, when she met Reese Scott.  They were united in marriage on June 26, 1953 in Russell.  This union was blessed with two children; Brad and Reesa.  They made their home in Russell.  Reese preceded her in death on August 23, 1982.

Virginia was a Legal Secretary for the Holland & Holland Law Firm for almost 50 years.  She was a member of St. John Lutheran Church.  She also was a Life Member of the Russell V.F.W.
