Virginia was a wonderful person, we spent many hours at aunt Rosie and Uncle Charley's on pine street, playing cards and sharing laughter. She was a very loving person, and she will be missed.

I worked at Westgate where she was. She always brought a smile to my face when I worked and just warmed my heart completely. She had such a way about her that touched me every time I saw her. It all happened so fast that i just can't even believe it. I wish I could go to the service, but I am in school far away out of state. I wish the family best of luck and so sorry for their loss. xoxo

Gina was a wonderful, funny aunt who loved a good joke, especially if it was a little off-color! We miss her already!

I worked with Ginny many years ago at the "old" bookstore location at the University of Maine campus. I always loved working with her and she was always so helpful to me as I was just learning the ropes.....I will keep her in my prayers. Blessings to the family, Margaret (Cyr) Colman

I am so sorry to hear of Virginia's passing. I have lived acroos the street from her on Pine Street for over 40 years. She would always make a point to come outside whenever I was working in the yard to say "HI". Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

We are deeply sorry to learn of Virginia's passing. I have lived across the street from her on Pine St. for over 40 years and I will miss her smile. Whenever she would see me working around the yard she would always make a point of coming out and saying "Hi". Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

Gina loved going to Parades, one year at the Old Town Homecoming Parade the Mill was throwing toilet paper out to the spectators, Gina's arms were full of rolls of Toilet Paper, guess what I got next year for my birthday-TOILET PAPER FROM THE PARADE. She certainly was a one of a kind Aunt!
