AG as we called her was coming into town and was staying at my parents home. My mom asked me to pick up some extra milk on my way home from work because milk was one of AG's favorite things to drink. All of use chatted with AG into the wee hours of the morning over milk. At one point we added Kahlua. In the morning we asked AG how she slept because she slept in my sister's room that had glow in the dark stars and planets in the ceiling. She said at first she thought it was the Kahlua but then she realized that she only had one drink. We all laughed VERY hard. Then she said that it was just like sleeping in the stars. She went on to say, "I absolutely loved it. It was so relaxing." In keeping with AG's fun spirit I raise a glass of milk to toast AG. She was the kindest, classiest, strongest woman I ever met. She helped people through tough times with a smile even though she had struggles of her own. She always had a funny anecdote or one liner to turn every situation into a laugh. AG you are now a star yourself. Thanks for so many good times. Cheers!!! To AG!!

Gini was the first person I met when I went for my New position at AT&T in Alpharetta, Georgia. She was an amazing woman to me. I admired her Confidence, Strength , yet her Sensitivity, Vulnerability. Gini, was the most curious person I knew . Always asking questions, seeking the why and how things were done. She was the “Wind Beneath my Wings” through issues at work loss of my children. We Prayed over Gini’s children and John as they were going through difficult health issues and times in their lives. My admiration in watching Her loving devotion, concern and care for each of her children Karen, Michael and husband John as each life went through crisis times and rallying through surgeries. Gini loved her family soo much and would be there for each one no matter how she was feeling. Her love for Michael and Karen was her heartbeat. Being a good mother was very important to her. Her family overcame many obstacles in their lives. She loved and was so Proud of her Granddaughters: Sierra , Gabby and Grandson, Caden. Bragging on their every accomplishment: their music, school grades, soccer, and theatre even when they baked together. Her family was everything to her. Her life with her husband John, they two beautiful children and three wonderful grandchildren. Gini was at his side until she went home to her Heavenly Father.
The closeness of her sister Diane meant soo much to her before and through her illness. There so many family members and friends that loved Gini and will miss her.
I know for me: Gini was my Friend, Sister, Confidant, Always There, Taught me how to Analyze things, Encourager, we Laughed , Cried , Prayed and Rallied at various success we went through. We Always said, “Thank God one of us is up while the other is down!” Gini, Losing you has been the hardest thing I have had to endure since I lost my daughters Sally Jo and Brenda. Give them a hug for me. Love you my friend, and miss you terribly, Carmela

My best memory of Aunt Gini was playing Trouble with her. I think I was maybe 6. My two sisters went swimming with Karen and Mike, but I had an ear infection and couldn’t swim. AG (as she referred to herself) was trying to teach me (AD as she called me) how to do the “pop o matic bubble.” After about 5 times of not making the dice inside the bubble roll, I pressed it so hard when it popped up, all the game pieces flew out. I was scared, but AG started laughing and said “ maybe not so hard this time.” Good times...my deepest sympathies to Uncle John (UJ) Karen, Mike and family. May you find peace and comfort in all of your memories. 💜 U Ag! AD

I first met Gini when we started working together 12 years ago at Cobb County. She was an amazing lady and I can’t express how much she has done for me and my family. From hemming my wedding dress for my wedding to making countless cakes for all my major milestones such as the grooms cake and all my kids birthday cakes. She loved my kids and came to visit them as often as she could. She even came to both of my kids baptism! When I think of Gini, I think about her love for Halloween and how much fun she had dressing up. She wore the best costumes at work and loved to make everyone laugh. I will miss her always!

Gini and I made so many memories that we shared over the past 65 years. The most memorable had to be all the late night talks we had...all the laughs and tears. I could never ask for a better friend.
