Virginia was born in Torrington, CT on February 17, 1944. She was the daughter of the late Elizabeth and Asa Hall. She was preceded in death by a sister and brother.

Ordained in the New York Conference, she served the following United Methodist churches in Connecticut:  First UMC in Stamford, Summerfield UMC in Bridgeport, Middletown, Winsted and Derby. She retired in 2016.

Ginny's friends and pets were her family and she loved none more than Poppy, George, the Gee, the Goo and the Goose. According to her friends she was a gifted preacher, an eloquent writer, and a talented artist. She was intellectual, witty, and had a deliciously mischievous side. The honor of which she was most proud was The Reneen Steinberg Humanitarian Award for excellence in human services.
