On February 12, 1947, Virgie was born to Joe and Maria Sanchez in Hondo, New Mexico. She attended Picacho, Tinnie and Hondo schools throughout her childhood. Virgie played volleyball and basketball when she was going to Hondo High School, where she graduated. Virgie later left Picacho and moved to Roswell and made her home there. Virgie was a homemaker that loved having family gatherings and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and all her loved ones; they were her life’s greatest treasure.

Her most memorable moments were the times she spent with her best friends, who preceded her in death, her compadres: Terri and Moises Coronado.
