Our "Aunt Jimmy" was a role model about loving extended family. Even as she aged, she could talk about multiple generations of family, and her love for all of showed in those conversations. My heart felt sympathy to Doug, Jackie and their families.

We lived next door to Ginny for 25 years and we all thoroughly enjoyed her. My Mom would watch my children during the week and her and Ginny would sit and talk daily. She was always shopping for clothes and telling us about what she bought. She'd knock on our back window if she needed my husband's help -she was a great neighbor and we still miss her after she moved out. Rest in peace Ginny, hope there is more traveling for you to do in Heaven

Condolences to all who loved her, who played bingo or went to the casino or played cards with her, who played kickball in her backyard or way too many activities to mention
