    To the family of Virginia. What a wonderful, caring person your mother was. A very caring neighbor when we lived on Glendale Dr. and a super supporter to us as teachers. She was always so wonderful to my mother, Mrs. Gibbs and they seemed to enjoy each other so much in the church choir. Virginia will be missed by you her family and in the community. Our thoughts are with you during this sad time.
    Gary and Jan Kersey and family

    Ginny will be forever in our hearts. What a dear, sweet and funny lady. She could tell a story like no one else – with a straight face and then cause us to all laugh together when she was finished. A true Christian warrior who lived her faith always. She is sadly missed by all but we rejoice in knowing she is healthy and alive in her new heavenly home. Our prayers are with all of you on this journey of grieving and missing a wonderful mother, grandmother and dear friend. Mike and Diana Kelley

    Our minds and hearts cannot wrap around the fact that Ginny is no longer with us. We will always remember her laughter, kindness, humility, and deep insight into spiritual truths. Our Bible studies together have been enriched by her knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and we have learned from her example of a life built on His Word. We will sorely miss her, but we rejoice knowing she is with our Lord, eternally singing His praises with her new voice.
    With our deepest sympathy,
    Fred and Carol Downs
