Virginia L. Smith (nee. Bolger) passed away on June 27, 2020 at the age of 99. She was born and raised in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania. She received an RN degree from Sharon General Hospital and worked for many years as a registered nurse in hospitals and nursing homes in various locations.

In 1942, she married Charles B. Smith and they spent the early years of their marriage in Altoona, PA and later moved to Hermitage, PA where they built a home and raised two children. After Charles retired, they moved to Florida where Virginia lived for several years, even after Charles passed away.
