Virginia was an avid gardener and her love of color was on display, from her brilliant flowers in shades of red, orange, and yellow, to her bright red gardening clogs.

She is survived by her children Julia Roebuck of Salt Lake City, Kathryn DeMond of Sheridan, Brad DeMond of Selah, Washington, and Suzanne DeMond of Olympia, Washington; and grandchildren include: Joshua and Andrew Roebuck, and Christopher, Erica, and Megumi DeMond.
