She was born on April 5, 1942 in Thomas, WV, to Christine and Anthony Susman.
Virginia was a very active member of St. Paul’s Church.

For many years, she was also an active volunteer at Sage Point nursing home in La Plata, MD, and other nursing homes throughout the area.
She enjoyed gathering information on her family history. Her family came here from Slovenia, a country that she came to know and love, even learning the language. She and her husband actually went for a visit to there in 2001 and visited with family members. This was one of the greatest times of her life.
Virginia is survived by her husband, Hunter (Skip) Roland; son, Joseph Roland; daughter, Jeni Nelson; and brother, Toni Susman. She is also sur vived by two grandchildren: Kaylan and Alex Nelson.
