Virginia was named for her grandaunt, Virginia Hanks Taylor, but has always been called Ginger. She grew up at Bailey's Prairie and Columbia and appears in Brazoria County in the household of her parents as a seven year old in the 1930 census.3 She graduated from West Columbia High School as Valedictorian and attended Texas Woman's University in Denton. Ginger enlisted in the WAVES during World War II and served in San Francisco and Hawaii. After the war, she earned a degree in education from the University of Houston. After her children were grown, she earned a degree in library science from the University of Houston, Clear Lake. She was a librarian at an inner city elementary school in Houston until her retirement in 1984. Ginger is very interested in family history and has generously contributed to the writer's efforts. She and her daughter Kathy enjoy bird watching and traveling, their most recent trip being to England and Wales in 2002.
