Virginia Carol Rust was born in Houston, Texas on January 18, 1956. She married Randal Rust on January 31, 1987 and they were married for 32 years.

Virginia was a member of First Baptist Church Elgin and was part of various small groups and bible studies. She launched an outreach program to Elgin Elementary to help mentor children with academic needs through reading. IGNITE, as it would come to be called, was a rousing success.
