She spent many years supporting Tom’s business and the children’s academic and athletic endeavors. Ginny also enjoyed playing golf and tennis with Tom and with Ladies groups. Ginny was affectionately named Gigi by her twelve adoring grandchildren. Gigi has a special bond with her grandchildren who she loved very much. Gigi also loved her many pet Labrador retrievers, but especially her favorite, Dooly. Ginny was a great supporter of Penn State and created a scholarship in the College of Health and Human Development to support students there. She supported her Church, St. Ann’s and was appreciative of their pastoral care in later years.
