Ginny was a humble woman of strong faith and love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Some of Ginny's most significant characteristics were her easy laughter, continuous frugal living and her calm strength and certainty in any circumstance. Ginny had a wonderful, long life and thoroughly enjoyed the various volunteering positions she had with Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, nursing homes and Meals on Wheels. Ginny loved to travel as often as she could, enjoyed Big Band music, parades and the Philadelphia String Bands.
