Ginny and my mom were pals at Hampton Fields. Ginny, always the joker, provided much needed comic relief for us all! And, she looked out for my mom, for which I am forever grateful. Rest in peace, my friend.

Aunt Ginny became a regular in our lives when I married Brad. She always welcomed our family with a smile and loved watching the kids play. She loved stickers and sweets! My husband adored his great aunt Ginny. Praying that she is dancing with Jesus in heaven now!

I have many, many memories of aunt Virginia
I must start with the fact she said how she felt, she was a true spit fire and that was one quality I admired in her
Kelly you gained weight never subtle lol

My favorite memory was how she always took care of Grandma (Mary Jane) she was always there to decorate her house, laugh, tell stories and jokes.. I miss those days and it was the love she had for everyone even when she snipped at aunt Julie for fun, that I’ll forever hold near and dear

I admired her work ethic, her caring nature, her laughter as she had one of the best laughs ever!!!

She had an amazing grin and smile and was a great story teller

Rest In Peace aunt Virginia
I love you and will forever hold our memories near to my heart

I know your in heaven and surrounded by all your siblings who you missed and longed for as well as all those who went before you

Until we meet again
