Virginia, or Ginny to those who knew her, loved music, reading, her children, her cats and the church. She will be remembered as a force of nature who stood strong in the face of adversity, who would give her last dime to a person in need and always had an extra chair at her table. She believed fiercely in helping others, that there was always someone in greater need than she was.
