Ginny opened a new door for me when she hired me to teach 3 year-olds at St. Mark's in the early '80s. That led to a career as a Kindergarten teacher in Naples, Fl that lasted until a few years ago. I am thankful for her guidance and support as well as many fun memories. She led with grace and dignity. May she rest in peace.

Ginny and her family visited us in South Gate in about 1957, I think. After they left for home, Ginny promised to write to me and we became pen pals for a while. I remember her telling me about the Dolfinettes, a water ballet group she was in.

I thoroughly enjoyed corresponding with her and looked forward to her letters.

My last memory of cousin Ginny though many years ago is an indelible and pleasant one. My mom, Edna Russell was her dad Bob’s sister. Mom drove us to Vero for summer family visits back in the late 1950s. Ginny must have been about 16 and I about 14 at this time and I thought she was very grown up, glamorous and pretty, especially in her bathing suit. After a week or two of fun, including time on the Indian River on Uncle Bob’s cabin cruiser, we were saying goodbye. As she got out of our car, she suddenly kissed me on the cheek. I remember being frozen in my seat while that spot on my cheek glowed warmly for several miles down the road. Puppy love and kissin’ cousins. Wish I could have told her about that moment.
