Virginia met Kerry Seibert, and the couple married on November 26, 1969. They were blessed with three children: Eric, Michelle, and Jeffery.

Virginia was a nurse at the VA for 26 years. After Kerry passed away, she worked at Pella Plastics for some time before working for Midwest Sanitation for 15 years. Her family finally convinced her to slow down and retire, so she could enjoy her time with her family.

Virginia loved to cook and have Sunday dinners for her family. She specialized in her homemade chicken and noodles. The family enjoyed every meal she made for them.Virginia Padgett
