Virginia was born on Jan. 6, 1931, in Antigo, Wis., the daughter of John and Elsie Hartl. Virginia met and married Lee Steinbach following a whirlwind courtship in 1947, while Lee was on leave from the Army. Following their engagement and marriage, Virginia joined her new husband in the Army. She was trained at the Fort Knox Food Service School in cooking and worked as an Army cook until her honorable discharge in 1951. Virginia and Lee lived in many different places, including Japan. A favorite story from their time there includes an incident in which they stopped a lovely man to ask for directions and ended up with a puppy. Virginia and Lee lived lives full of travel and adventure and were typically the life of any party they attended. Virginia was a talented guitar player and singer, often entertaining family and friends around a campfire at Sandy Beach. Virginia was a beloved daughter, wife, sister, aunt and friend who touched every single person who was lucky enough to meet her.
Virginia was preceded in death by her sister, Rosann; her parents; her sister, Irma; her brother, Albert; and her dear husband, Lee. She is survived by her brother Raymond Hartl and a number of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
