Virginia was born on February, 10, 1936 in Copalis Beach, WA. Virginia was preceded in death by her mother; Beatrice Virginia (Jones) Robinson; father, George Ivo Gillem; beloved husband, Clair C.

Virginia was a creative and skilled homemaker, and an excellent bookkeeper. Life was never dull when she was around. Virginia was adventuresome, loved to travel, and strived to learn new things. Some of her many adventures included riding in a hot air balloon, traveling alone across country in her Ford Explorer (without a working gas gauge or cell phone), and competing in an accordion players convention in New Hampshire. While living in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, Virginia taught Sunday School at the Catholic Church. To provide care for her beloved son Daniel, Virginia sought and completed training to enable her to administer home dialysis to him, in his time of need. Virginia was a certified Dental Hygienist. She was a self-taught accordion player, loved to entertain people, and enjoyed trail hiking and biking.
May Virginia rest in peace with her husband Clair. Many thanks to the staff of CHI Franciscan Hospice-Tacoma, and Enumclaw Health and Rehabilitation Center for their loving care and extraordinary kindness to Virginia and her family.
