  1. I enjoyed knowing Ginny in our Fenton Library reading group where we had some great book discussions. She was part of the Red Hat Ladies group where we had some very fun get togethers. I will always remember Ginny as being so kind, smart and always ready to have a good time. My prayers and condolences to the family.

  2. Ginny was one of the sweetest Ladies I have ever met.
