After graduating from Albion College at 19 years of age, she continued graduate studies at Northwestern University, University of Michigan, Universities in Denver and Chicago, University of Southern California, Middlebury and University of Illinois. Virginia married her husband, Earl Williams, in 1968 in Macomb, Illinois. In 1969 she accepted an invitation to join the founding faculty of Yavapai Community College as History Department Chair.
