Ginny was a very special person and a "Colleyville Lion". You didn't have to ask for her to help with projects; she was already helping. She was a worker in our club and truly knew how to serve her community. She was an example to all she met. When she retired from the public eye, she still helped whenever and however she could...We need more examples like Ginny in our world! Ginny exemplified the Lion motto "We Serve!" The world is a better place because of her service. Blessings....

I was honored to be one of Ginny’s caregivers for a couple of years. She was indeed an amazing woman, mom, grandmother, sister, friend, and one of my dearest friends I called my family. Ginny was full of life, adventurous, loving, smart, hilariously funny, full of wisdom, and adored by many. We miss you, dear Ginny. May you rest in peace. Kelley Fisher & Family
