Aunt Virginia (Ginny) was the sweetest person you would ever want to meet. She was always there for any and everyone. I had the pleasure of renting the apartment upstairs of her house when I was pregnant with my son Timothy Brown. She was his God Mother . If anything had happened to me when he was young, she would have taken him and raised him , as she has for so many other kids and families. She is now in GOD’s loving hands and we shall join her one day soon. Sharing with love in memory of her love for us all!❤️

Growing up next to Jenny was like having 2 moms! We always felt safe and loved by Jenny! We never locked our doors, and Jenny's door was always open! We would have to run home when mom would yell out the back door "Becky, Temple, Tony" (we were the 3 little ones) Most of the time we were over at the Turner's enjoying some of Jenny's Fried Chicken!

We will always have great family memories of growing up with Jenny and the whole Turner Family!

Sending Love, hugs and prayers,
All the Doniel kids and our Mom BJ!
