    A great lady who will be missed by so many. Her humor and compassion were just two of her great attributes. A former co-worker at the nursery in Middletown Hospital and a long time friend who never finished a story after I fell asleep on her at the camper in Hillsboro. Only Ginny could keep that story secret all these years. She will be missed by family and friends. May your memories outlast your sorrows. Goodbye dear friend. God Bless.
