Mick preceded her in death in 1990 after 43 years of marriage. Caring for and loving her family and grandchildren were her utmost joy.

    Ginny enjoyed being outdoors, parks, trails and also searching for her cardinal each season. She instilled a love of reading, music, cards, Scrabble and dancing with her entire family.

    She is survived by 2 daughters: Margaret "Peggy" Cox and Lynn Van Grinsven. Grandchildren include Kirstin Cox (friend: Brent Haddow), Kostia and Maria Van Grinsven.
