About Councilmember Virginia D. Onley

Virginia Onley is serving her second term on the Rockville City Council. She hails from Libertytown, Maryland, a small town in Frederick County. After moving to Rockville in 1993, she fell in love with the citizen participation form of government and decided to make Rockville her permanent home. She resides at the Americana Centre Condominiums.

Virginia retired from the IBM Corporation after 35 years of service. She also worked at the Naval Base in Bethesda, home of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. As a part-time team member at the Navy Exchange, Virginia served our men, women and their families as an ambassador of military benefits.

Virginia has one son Claude “Ted “ Onley, Jr.; daughter-in-law, Cassandra; and grandchildren, Claude “Terence” Onley, III and Corinne Onley.

Virginia began her community involvement in Rockville twenty years ago at an Americana Centre Association meeting. Since then, she has made a life of serving Rockville and her community.
