Virginia (Ginny) was blessed to have a rich and full life.

They married and later moved their family to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. Ginny enjoyed the Hospitality industry as Reservations Manager for the VI Hilton, Resident Manager of the Water Isle Colony Club, Sales Manager of Bluebeards Castle and Store Manager of the Continental Gift Shop.

They moved to Jensen Beach and then later to Palm Bay, FL.
Ginny had a zest for life and an adventurous spirit. She loved entertaining, cooking, gardening, raising orchids and traveling. Her smile lit up a room and her caring nature was felt by anyone who met her. She touched many lives with her warmth and kindness.
Another angel sits in heaven now and is smiling upon us. Thank you Ginny, for filling our hearts with your love and grace. You will always be part of us.
