I will greatly miss my Grand Aunt Virginia (Aunt Ginny). She was a large presence in my growing up years and I'm grateful that we reconnected later in life. Aunt Ginny was a formidable and funny woman and I will carry her spirit with me.

I'll always remember (Great) Aunt Ginny as a strong, independent woman who was quick to smile and laugh. My fondest memories of her are when we played games at her kitchen table when I was a child. I will miss her.

We will always remember our Vermont Grandmother. She was such a wonderful person and we always enjoyed our little chats with her. She will be greatly missed. We are sending our prayers to her family at this difficult time.
