I was so saddened to hear the news, but was also comforted because I have no doubt where Ginny is and that we'll see her again. I considered it an honor to provide and participate in programming at FVC. Some of my best memories of Ginny were in bible study that she attended faithfully and always had something to share. Anything from little nuggets of wisdom to a challenging question that would have to be studied and brought back the next time with an answer. =D I cherished her candor in every conversation and her love for God. Sooo many memories of coffee chats (and Linda I'm eternally grateful for all of your help over the years) and memories of one-on-one conversations. Linda, Jim and the entire family please know that I am praying for you. Thank you for sharing your mom with us. She truly was a blessing to know.

Virginia was in my bible study at Friendship Village. She came every week. I learned so much from her. She was so wise and knew God’s word. I admired her so much. She loved hearing stories about my 2 grandkids and during our last zoom visit she actually got to visit with my 2 year old granddaughter Olivia. That brought her so much joy. She had the sweetest smile and best hugs. Virginia I am going to miss you so much but I know that you are with Jesus. Linda, Bob, and Jim she always spoke so highly of all of you. Family was everything to her. Thanks for sharing your sweet mama with me. I will never forget her. I will keep you all in my prayers. 💕

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”

I had the pleasure of knowing Virginia when I worked at Friendship Village. She was a “regular” at Bingo and always added to the discussion at our weekly Coffee Chats. She had a beautiful smile and a wicked sense of humor that I enjoyed tremendously. My condolences to her devoted family.

I was so blessed to know her. She was always kind and had a smile for me when I came into work. She had such strong faith and I know that got her through some very difficult times. Her family meant the world to her, she loved you all very much.

She always looked forward to her Women's Bible Study at Friendship Village. Those ladies lifted each other up, shared their faith and I always loved hearing them sing songs together too.

I loved her and as much as I will miss her, I know she is now with her beloved husband.

I share the same thoughts as Patti but cannot come up with the words to express them as graceful.
Virginia was the life of any gathering . She was always joyful and could captivate you with her humor and stories. She was classy.
My wife Vicki remembers her as one of the first of the family to greet her when we dated. Vicki was grateful for her kindness and welcoming nature. She appreciated that.
She was fun to be around and we are all better people as she shared her life with us.
I love the 10 year comment. That is classic. I can hear her say it; pure Virginia.

Virginia was a wonderful, funny, loving woman with a amazing laugh. I credit her with saving my sanity raising my children.
She told me that if it isn't going to matter in ten years, don't worry about it. I started applying that to EVERYTHING and life seemed to be better. I so looked forward to visiting with her at the Ernst reunions. When they were able, she and Bob didn't miss a one. She was so easy to talk to and always had something to say, and her laugh was so joyful for a lack of any other word. I could pick her laugh out of a crowd still and unfortunately hadn't heard it in a long, long while. I imagine her just visiting away up there in heaven. God is lucky to have her with Him. She was the best.
