Virginia was born on December 3, 1925 in Hoboken, New Jersey to Patrick and Josephine Ricciardi.

Virginia taught courses at Douglas College on parliamentary procedure. She was an entrepreneur and a leader in her beloved town of Hoboken. Virginia was the President and Owner of The Hoboken Garment for 30 years. But her most cherished and influential role was wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

She loved nothing more than spending time with her family, traveling the world with her husband, Anthony, and giving back to her community. Her presence was felt in every room she walked in, and she was a woman well ahead of her time. She lived a wonderful life, leaving so many lasting memories and stories that will live far beyond her years. The unconditional love she gave and the values she taught will live in the hearts of all she knew and loved. She will be forever missed.
