On July 2, 1950, Virginia married the love of her life, Albert Gough. Together, they raised two sons, Carl and Michael, in a God-fearing home with loving kindness, structure and order. Virginia, who believed that it indeed took a village to raise a child, later cared for Calvin and Preston Chase. She took great pride in raising the boys to always look out for one another. Virginia loved spending time with family.

She later went on to become a member of St. Matthew's Free Gospel Church in Leonardtown, MD under the leadership of Pastor Randolph Strong. One of her favorite scripture was Psalms 121:1-2 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills. from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
