Virginia A. Cameron, 70, a retired nursing supervisor and managment analyst at St. Elizabeths Hospital, died April 11 at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Washington. She had been hospitalized since suffering a stroke a year ago.
Miss Cameron, who lived in Alexandria, was born in Cameron, N.C. She moved here in 1938 and took her degree as a registered nurse at St. Elizabeths. She specialized in neuro-psychiatric work.

From that time until her stroke, Miss Cameron was a nurse's companion for private patients to whom she was referred by the Senior Citizens Employment Service of Alexandria.
Miss Cameron was a member of the Smithsonian Associates and the Friends of the Arena Stage.
