Virginia was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Sharon Carraway. Virginia is survived by her loving husband, John Baima, of 42 years.

Virginia is lovingly remembered by her daughters, Jessica Hutto and Bridgette Piatt, her son, Christopher Baima, her five granddaughters, her brother, David Hayden, and her sister, Judith Lindeken.
Virginia graduated from Fort Vancouver High School where she served as co-captain of her high school swim team for two years and, as a senior, was voted "Most Lovable" by her peers. The summer following her senior year of high school, she was selected as one of two delegates to represent her state at the National Youth Science Camp, a STEM honors program, where she met her future husband, John. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Education from Seattle Pacific University in 1979 and utilized this degree to homeschool her three children from kindergarten through 8th grade.
Virginia loved to read her Bible and pray with and for others. She was a prayer warrior with Moms in Prayer International for over 20 years and faithfully supported her church family and missionaries through prayer. Virginia was kind, compassionate, a friend to all, and loved her immediate and extended family greatly. She loved spending time with her family and friends (especially her 5 granddaughters), and serving her community. She was active in her church and spent over 20 years volunteering at a crisis pregnancy center.
