She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and also enjoyed gardening and theater.
Virginia was predeceased by her husband, Angelo Belvito, in 1985; parents, Anthony and Rosemary (Ferry) DeBottis; and brothers, Francis, Robert and Richard DeBottis.
Surviving are her daughter, Lisa (Henry Newman) Belvito of St. Paul, Minnesota; sons, Michael Belvito of Syracuse and Richard (Tess) Belvito of Camillus; grandchildren, Joe, Colin, Derek, AJ and Madison; great-grandson, Cameron; and several nieces and nephews.
