I remember Ginny very well even though I was a few years behind her ('50). But she graduated between my older brother ('46) and sister ('48) - and she and Eloise were close friends for several years. They spent a lot of time at our house after various athletic games and practices. She was a great gal and I am sure she will be missed by all who knew her. I will keep her family in my prayers.
