She grew up in a migrant farm working family physically harvesting crops all over the country. Her father always stressed to his children the importance of getting a good education. She graduated from Texas A&I with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Virginia received her Master of Arts in TESOL and Bilingual Education from Findlay University in May of 1999. She worked for Painesville City Schools as the Director of Migrant Education. She loved her co-workers, inspired and adored her students and reluctantly retired in January of 2010.
Virginia met her future husband Mike in Kingsville, Texas in 1972 while he was in the U.S. Navy. They loved each other so much they were married twice. First on August 27, 1977 at Hope Ridge Church in Mentor and then a week later they traveled to LaVilla, Texas to say their I Do’s once more on September 3rd. She and Mike moved to Painesville where they would start their family.

Virginia will be forever loved and greatly missed by her children, Victoria (Adan) Gomez, Michael (Cierra) Hoose Jr., Kassandra Hoose and Justin (Ashleigh) Hoose and her grandchildren, Gavin DeBarber, Viviana Hernandez, Aidan Gomez Hoose and Jacob Hoose.
