My sympathy goes out to all of "Ginny Babe's" family. I worked for Ginny during high school and learned about working hard, but also to enjoy what you're doing. Ginny was a fantastic cook and a warm, generous person with a great sense of humor. I will always remember her with love.

My mother is Ginny's youngest sister. Aunt Ginny was a fantastic cook. I will fondly remember her fried potatos which my son loves now when my mom makes them. Many hugs to Tammy, Becky and all of Ginny's family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We know each of you will dearly miss her. May you find moments of peace in your loving memories. Praying God will give you strength,comfort and peace during this difficult time.

To All Aunt Ginny's family,

We will all miss this wonderful woman, her smile, her humor, her love. I always could count on her being the 'ornery' one at our family reunions & was so happy she was living next to mom in her last few yrs. I still feel like part of the family & she was still a part of me.

My love, prayers & support to all of you for God's comfort. I hope to stop today to see you all.

To the Wiseman Family,

Aunt Ginny was an amazing woman who influenced my life in the short time I got to see her this summer. She was sweet and caring towards my mother when we returned for her sister's funeral. I will miss her little grin she always had.

Dear Jack & Family, Becky,
It is March 11 and I just discovered your Mother's obituary from February 15 while using my I-pad to read the Post & Mail that I just subscribed to. If I would have known, I certainly would have come to the funeral to see your family. You have my deepest sympathy. Love, Cousin Debbie
