Virginia was born in Willmar, Minnesota on August 22, 1936. She was one of 5 children of Margaret (nee Burns) and Virgil Olson. After graduating from Willmar High School, she attended Mankato State University where she earned a teaching degree. It was at Mankato where she met her future husband, Eugene McGraw. They were married on April 15, 1961 and moved to White Bear Lake where she started teaching at Webster Elementary School. After a couple years of teaching, Virginia decided to stay home full time and raise her 5 children. She enjoyed volunteering at school and church and could often be found working on house projects or planting her favorite flowers in the garden. She especially loved to play Bridge and read books. Virginia was a kind, sweet and charitable woman. Her family was the center of her life and she particularly loved spending time with her grandchildren in her later years. She will be greatly missed by them all.
