I was blessed with the privilege of living next door to the Comptons for over 20 years. We met them about the same time we became parents. What wise loving role models they were in every area--parents, in-laws, grandparents, aunt, uncles, friends, Christians, teachers, coaches and neighbors. They knew how to do it all!
I offer my prayers for Ginny's family. What a loss but what a joy knowing she is with Jesus. She was loved by many and will be sorely missed.
Rest in peace Ginny.

She was the perfect mom. I wouldn’t have changed anything about her.

My sister, Laurie Compton, loved Ginny so much. My brother-in-law, Ginny's son Jim, is such a warm funny guy, it's not hard to understand what Ginny was all about.
God bless Ginny.

Ginny was a wonderful person who was a next door neighbor while I was growing up and a good friend. I had the opportunity to fall under the influence of Ginny and Dee and they impacted positively on my life. Because of Ginny and Dee I went to Butler, became a teacher and coach, went into administration and stayed in contact with Ginny and Dee throughout their lives, always benefiting and being inspired by our contacts.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family during this time of loss. Ginny lived a good life and helped many along the way. She will be missed but leaves a fine legacy with her family.

Ginny’s son Jim is married to my sister, Laurie and the past few years Laurie and Jim have hosted a combined family Thanksgiving Day feast.
2 Thanksgivings ago after we had all stuffed ourselves we sat around the dining room table as Ginny told the story of how she met Leroy. She had a charming ability to draw me back in time. Such a warm memory as I think of how happy she must be now that she is reunited with Dee and her son, Ted too. Rest In Peace, Ginny.
