Virginia came to know the Lord as her personal Savior in her early teen years. She graduated from Moody Bible Institute and later from
Westmont College and then spent several years doing missionary work in Chile, South America. She married Philip Williams on June 9, 1962. She served the Lord beside her husband while he pastored churches and taught in seminaries in California and Texas before moving back to the Northwest.
Those who knew Virginia will remember her interest in serving others. Her home was often open to dinner guests. She loved to remember others with her kindness and encourage them over a cup of coffee.
She was interested in the spiritual well-being of those who called her "friend." She accompanied her husband twice on mission trips to Bangladesh.
She taught at Tacoma Baptist Schools and Heritage Christian School before going to the International Christian School of Budapest, where she taught English and English as a second language.
A scholarship fund will be established in her memory at the International Christian School of Budapest, so that students may have the
opportunity to hear the Good News of salvation. It was for that purpose that she spent her last years.
