If you ever read a story or thought about everything a mom/grandma should be, she was all of that and more. Our hearts are broken but even though we ache with the most unimaginable and almost unendurable sadness, we take comfort in knowing that she is finally at peace and reunited with our dad again.
Ginnie loved the outdoors. Some of our best memories are family camping trips . Ginnie loved bird watching and gardening. She also loved to sew. She made Halloween costumes throughout the years for her daughters and her grandkids. Ginnie lovingly sewed both of her daughters’ wedding dresses.
At her request, there will not be a viewing. Instead, she will be cremated and a memorial luncheon will be held on Saturday November 12, 2022. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Nature Conservancy or the Audubon Society.
