We always enjoyed our visits from Wisconsin to see Aunt Ginny in Scituate. She welcomed us into her home and entertained us with great stories.
As the years progressed visits were to wherever she lived, always a radiant smile and humor. We will miss our telephone visits and seeing her.
Eternal rest grant her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the soul of all the departed Rest In Peace. Comfort to all our cousins and Aunt Ginny’s friends. ☘️
