Later, Virginia drove school bus for 36 years, retiring at the age of 72. The years on the school bus were her happiest, and she would yodel every year for the kids.
The couple travelled in their camper to McAllen, TX every winter for 13 years. There Virginia entertained visitors in three different parks with her yodeling and singing. Loren died December 12, 2017.
