Virginia Griffin (nee Todd) is the daughter of Anna Matilda Henderson and Albert Henry Todd of Gordon Head. She had a sister, June. The Todd family lived at 4344 Cedar Hill Road, near Mount Douglas. Virginia married Norman Griffin in 1941, and they lived in Macleod and Calgary during WWII. Norman was part of the ground crew at the RCAF station in Calgary.

Virginia and Norman bought land and built a house on Midgard Avenue with a loan received under the Veterans Land Act. The land was purchased from a Mr. Porter for $600, money saved by Virginia during the war; the house was built with the loan. Virginia and Norman had a son in 1946.
