Virginia worked for McKelvey's in Youngstown and Livingston's in the Liberty Plaza. She was a member of St. Rose Church. Virginia enjoyed playing cards with her friends and family, as well as ballroom and polka dancing. Her greatest joy in life was her family, always being there for her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed helping with the cub scouts and girl scouts when her own children were young, and as a grandmother she never missed an event that her grandchildren were a part of. The neighbor kids loved coming to Virginia's house, where she would always have food and special treats for them. Virginia was known most for her big heart and giving spirit, lending a helping hand to all who knew her, hosting parties, reunions, charity and neighborhood events throughout her life. In her later years, she enjoyed telling stories of her childhood in Briar Hill to her many nieces and nephews. She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Charles R. Kohut, of Canfield, Clarence "Lance" (Pat) Kohut, of Sagamore Hills, Ohio and Cheryl (Richard) Asente, with whom she made her home, and her grandchildren, Joseph Asente, Justin Asente (Jade Tibbs), Cody Hernandez, Angela Queneau and Katie Ziegler.
