Virginia attended various schools growing up lived in many places. Virginia was a very loving, caring, supportive, straightforward person. Virginia was brought up in the traditional lifestyle, she attended ceremonies, and also powwows for her kids she loved watching them dance. Virginia was very close with her Sister Barbara they had a very unbreakable bond when Barb passed away Virginia was very sad she felt alone, but their baby brother Kenneth helped Virginia they only had each other “Facing the World Alone.” Virginia was close with her Brother Steven (Cote) they had a very strong bond they would always get cheeky with one and other and help one another they were very close in life always making plans to move to new places and guide each other in life and support one another. Virginia's Younger brother Houston (Kakakaway) always got cheeky with her and always told her to go straight and always helped Virginia lots he was a call away.
Virginia and her Daughter Gabriel (Gabe) always clashed in life always fighting, but they never thought anything of it they wouldn't talk for a few hours or a day, they would act like nothing even happened, their strong bond was unbreakable. Virginia and Gabriel always had each other’s back always calling each other “My Backer” or “My Gun” They had more of a best friend bond always stuck together. Virginia was blessed 10 years ago with her “Baby” Kendra Severight (Baby) they were very close Virginia always babied her like she was still a small baby, Virginia always had a lot of love for her no one could fight her or confront her, or Virginia will say “Leave my smallest/baby alone” in a certain tone.
Virginia took her sister Barbara's son as her own, Kenton Severight (Sugar Bear) Barbra told Virginia to look after her son if anything happened. When Barbara passed away she took him as his own “son” loved him as her own and protected him also she always wanted her own boy so she had him and looked after him but it didn't feel right also, Virginia said “After a year when Barb passes maybe it will feel right.” But Virginia loved her three children equally in life. Virginia and her mother's relationship were rough always scrapping one another but at the end of the day they would make up and act like nothing happened also, always helping one another with the kids always supporting one another.
