Wolff at the Methodist Church on Park Avenue in Berlin. After her marriage, she lived in Weyauwega, Genoa City, Berlin, and Janesville before moving to Oshkosh.

Virginia enjoyed a long teaching career starting in rural schools and taking teacher positions at several different elementary schools. Family was very important to Virginia. She thrived on making big family dinners and hosting holiday events. When she and her husband, Harry, retired, they moved back to Berlin where they built a home.

Virginia was a devoted wife, mother, and Nana. She took great pride in her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She attended as many of their school and sports activities as possible. She was happiest helping and supporting her family. In her retirement, Virginia stayed sharp playing word puzzles and watching quiz shows. Virginia was a member of United Methodist Church in Berlin, and was very active in the Berlin Alumni Association.
