Virginia Z. Weisbroad, 66, active in the theater and patriotic societies, died Tuesday at DeWitt Army Hospital at Ft. Belvoir after a stroke.

She was a former member of the board of governors and a director of the Council of the Little Theater of Alexandria.

Mrs. Weisbrod had produced and directed a number of plays for the Little Theater, including two of the annaul Gadsby's Tavern Restoration plays.

She had won first prize in one of the one-act playwriting competitions held by the D.C. Recreation Department in the 1960s. She also had been a dramatic coach at St. Agnes Episcopal School in Alexandria.

Mrs. Weisbrod was a graduate of the Institute of Genealogical Research, conducted by American University and the National Archives.

She was a past president of the Society of the Daughters of Colonial Wars of D.C. and a past regent of the Continental Dames Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington.

She also belonged to the John Alexander Chapter to the DAR in Alexandria and to Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill.

Born in Ventnor, N.J., Mrs. Weisbrod moved to the Washington area in 1948. She lived in the Wilton Woods area of Fairfax County until moving to Alexandria about a year and a half ago.

She is survived by her husband, Adalbert W. Weisbrod, of the home; two daughters, Virginia Wilson, of Rockville, and Diana Grant, of Springfield, Va.; her mother, Helen M. Coane, of Atlantic City, and four grandchildren.

The family suggests that expression of sympathy may be in the form of contributions to the Salvation Army.
