Virginia was born on June 9, 1925 to Paul and Regna (Staven) Oberg in Zurich. She was raised on the family farm in Zurich and attended school there. After finishing school she taught at the country school house in Lloyd for a short time. On December 29, 1945 Virginia May Oberg married Amede Louis D'Hooge in Chicago, IL while he was on leave with the US Navy. After the war ended the couple lived in Tennessee and Seattle before making their home in Havre; where they raised their 4 children.
Virginia was a disciplined and faithful woman. She spent her time caring for her family and volunteering in the classrooms at St. Jude as well as with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H over the years. She was a member of the Catholic Daughters and "The God Squad". She dearly loved her friends from the Havre and Hi-line communities. New and longtime residents at the Eagles Manor became her friends quickly. They supported her during her retirement and welcomed her stories, clichés and of course advise. Before retiring there, she enjoyed fishing and camping in Beaver Creek, Glacier and Canada. You could always count on her to root for the underdog. The Mariners were her favorite team. She knew the players' stats and would often times call her sister to discuss the games. Virginia dearly loved her children, grandchildren and many nephews and nieces. Her love and affection will be greatly missed by many.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and brothers, Russell and Sterling.
She is survived by her children, Sandra (Larry) Curtiss of Havre, Patricia (Thanash) Meras of Gig Harbor, WA, Robert D'Hooge of Billings and Jane Linville of Columbus, OH; grandchildren, Michael (Anne) Curtiss, David (Maria) Curtiss, Gretchen (Gianluca) Onstad-Interlandi, Lukia (Jeff) Roth, Jessica Onstad, Sjanetee D'Hooge, Christopher (Jenna) Linville and Ryan (Tori Danneker) Linville; 9 great-grandchildren; and sister, Lois Konecny of Seattle, WA.
