I knew Virginia as a fellow member of the Retreat League at Queen of Angels. She was a very sweet lady and a kind soul. I have reached out to Fr. Tom Zelinski, OFM-Cap who was there during the time Virginia served there. He may send you a condolence as well. Peace to your hearts; she lived a good, long and faith-filled life.

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Virginia. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of Virginia's life. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Berghoff family during this great time of grief. May perpetual light shine upon Virginia.
