She married Paul W. Stark of Kansas City, KS on October 1, 1949. Paul owned and operated Koch Heating and Cooling. When her children were born, Virginia became a full-time homemaker. She and Paul raised five children in KC, KS. After Pauls retirement, the couple moved to Shawnee, KS to enjoy friends, children and grandchildren.
