Born April 1, 1935, Virginia passed away February 16, 2023 suddenly, from heart failure. Dearest wife of the late Leonard for 66 years, mother of Carol (Dr. Jorge) Zuniga; Grandmother of Annie (Patrick) Harrison. Sister of Frances (Russell) Chiesa. Predeceased by sons: Gary John and Joseph Leonard DiGiuseppe; grandson: Andrew Leonard DiGiuseppe, daughter-in-law: Mary DiGiuseppe and brother, Leonard Tagliavia. Virginia was a loving and devoted wife and mother, a loyal and trusted friend to many, and an accomplished professional technical writer and university instructor. She beat to her own drum and was tireless in her pursuits to ensure that she, Leonard and her children had all life could give. Virginia began college courses as a young mother and studied through to a PhD in English Literature at WSU. She was on staff for more than 30-years at WSU while also applying her writing and organizational skills in industry as a technical writer and training specialist, until retiring at 83. A devoted mother, she participated in her children's activities from scout leader to sports advocate and education mentor. She loved to entertain in their home, hosting friends, family -- small groups and large. She cherished visits from her granddaughter Annie who lives in Arkansas. She was not shy to share her pride in her daughter's accomplishments. Helping and giving to others made Virginia happy and she would bend over backwards for her friends and family. She and Leonard led a full life, they traveled extensively traversing the world on more than 30 cruises, loved cards, theatre and shared a wonderful group of friends. Their support for each other never wavered through the loss of their middle child at 14 to leukemia, business challenges, and the tragic losses of their grandson and eldest son to auto accidents. In her downtime, Virginia was either working on a crossword puzzle or making a list of tomorrow's to-dos. Virginia's beloved Leonard passed in 2021 from COVID-19. Despite the devastation of his loss, their life and the selling of her treasured family home of 55 years, she reinvented a full life with her wide circle of friends who shared her passion for bridge, books, women's issues and more recently was traveling again. PLEASE NOTE UPDATED DATE AND TIMES Viewing will be held at Charles Verheyden Funeral Home in Grosse Pointe on Friday, February 24th from 2:00pm - 8:00pm. Funeral service will be 10:00am Saturday February 25th at St. Lucy's Church in St. Clair Shores. A final resting prayer at Resurrection Cemetery Chapel (18201 Clinton River Road, Clinton Township) will begin at Noon, immediately followed by a luncheon for family and friends to celebrate Virginia's life at the Mirage Banquet Center (16980 18 Mile Road, Clinton Township).

My heart is sad.
Carol and family- May the love and memories you hold dear in your heart bring you comfort at this difficult time,

I met and became friends with Virginia at DTE. We shared some interesting times together.
My husband and I enjoyed playing bridge with her and Leonard or meeting for dinner.
Rest in peace dear Virginia.
Marsha and Herb Feyer
