Sorry to hear about the passing of Ginny. We here at Cook just found out about her passing. I worked several years with her before her retirement.
Thoughts and Prayers to her family and friends.

Even though I have not known her long. I have enjoyed being the same Sunday school class with her. She is home now with our Heavenly Father.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. I knew Virginia from attending Broadway Nazarene with my family. I remember her as a sweet and wonderful lady.

Virginia was truly a fairy godmother to me. She had such a tiny foot and I was the only little girl I knew that had real high heels when I was only 7-8 years old. She was also the personification of a Godly Woman. My life was much richer in knowing her. My sympathy goes out to Mary Ann and Margaret and all the other brothers and sisters but I know that my mother and Aunt Gert and a bunch of the Broadway Family are rejoicing at her arrival.

Virginia was one of the most amazing women I have known. I cherish our friendship and memories of working together so many years in Nazarene Missions International. When she accepted a responsibility, she carried it through to completion with excellence. So much could be said of her, and all of it is good! Our great loss is Heaven's gain.
