She graduated from Draper High School in 1945 and also attended Union College. Virginia was a longtime, faithful member of St. Madeleine Sophie Church and its Rosary Society. She enjoyed interior design, music, gardening, reading and babysitting children. She also volunteered at election day as a poll worker. Above all else she was devoted to family and treasured time gathering for holidays, Sunday dinners and family celebrations. All who knew Virginia loved her kind nature. She is survived by her sons, Gary (Joann) Giorgio of Rotterdam, Gregory (Kate Provencher) Giorgio of Altamont and Michael (Emilia) Giorgio of Guilderland, her sister Rita Rambler and brother Phillip Martinelli. She was blessed with and is survived by five grandchildren: Nicholas Giorgio, Justin Giorgio, Briana Haluska (Steven), Vincent and Gabby Del Bene.
