Virginia Castillo Miranda, of Round Rock, passed away on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at the age 96.

She was born in Maxwell, Texas on January 10, 1921 to Maria (Sanchez) and Jesus Castillo. She is preceded in death by her husband Florencio Miranda, parents and siblings, Juanita Suarez and Avelina Lozano. Survivors include her children, Palmira Chairez and husband Carmen, Martha Maldonado and husband Miguel, and Carmen Miranda; 6 grandchildren and 11 Great grandchildren, and 9 Great-Great grandchildren; her siblings, Angelita, Jesse, Concho and Mary Castillo; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Virginia was a hard-working business woman that wasn't afraid to provide for her family. She was the first Hispanic woman to open her own business known as Virginia’s Beauty Salon at the downtown square of Seguin in 1942. Her beauty shop was a local social gathering place for many young adults in the area as far as Lockhart. She provided a friendly hang out, sponsored a few parties as well as servicing ladies with their hair-cuts and set. She later moved and opened another Virginia’s Beauty Salon also located on the downtown square of San Marcos. In addition, she worked with her husband Florencio who eventually had a very successful photography studio named Miranda Studio.
The studio was well known throughout the hill country area. She enjoyed traveling in her younger years, in which she actually lived at some time, in New York City and New Orleans. She will be missed greatly by those that knew and loved her. Visitation will be held at Palmer Mortuary Chapel on Saturday, January 13, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The Holy Rosary will be recited at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. with the Funeral Mass to follow at 11:00 a.m. The Burial will be held at San Geronimo Cemetery.
