Together, the couple moved to Jasper, Georgia, and worked for Bill's parents’ business, a general store in Carn's Mill. Bill then joined the Army Air Corps and Virginia became a proud military wife. She enjoyed traveling around the world with her husband. After Bill's time in the service, they later returned to Jasper, Georgia, and opened their own business . They operated the store until their retirement. In 1994, they settled in Warner Robins to be closer to family. Virginia spent her golden years gardening, fishing, playing miniature golf, watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, and playing BINGO.

In addition to her parents, Virginia was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, William (Bill) Henry Lunsford; son-in-law, Howard Gregory; five brothers and seven sisters.
