Ginny was born on December 16, 1930 in Fairmont, WV and passed away on June 24, 2020 surrounded by her family. She and her husband Frank began a family in Newbury, to which she was a resident for 69 years. Her involvement in the community extended from her 69-year membership in the Kiwanis Lake Women’s Club to her 50 years served at St. Helen Catholic Church. She loved serving her community and was proud to have ran the kitchen at Longo’s for 20 years and cook for the Manor House for another 20 years. Her love for the community did not stop there. She would bake neighbors’ special treats whenever she felt it was just what they needed that day, and buy candy for the cross-country teams, to which her husband Frank would pass out and get all the recognition. Although she loved her community her grandchildren and great grandchildren gave her the most enjoyment in life. Ginny was there for everyone, and as her Parkinson’s progressively worsened her son Gary was right by her side with assistance from caretakers, Char, Nikki, Erika, Gayle, Sue, Michelle, and granddaughters Karrie and Kristin. Ginny was a wonderfully dedicated women, and for that she will be dearly missed.
