To Gary and family I just found out about terrible loss and my heart is so heavy for you all. I always remember Ginny coming up to Green Bay for shopping or errands and would always stop in the office. Her smile and joy when seeing her husband, I felt was like seeing a young new bride looking at her husband. She was always so thoughtful and kind. When Gary talked about his family it was with the greatest love and pride. The love that Gary and Ginny shared will live on with their children and grandchildren.

I always enjoyed my time with Ginny, whether it was judging the kids’ Halloween costumes in Butte des Morts, serving food at the Lions Club events, or working with her on Butte des Morts Historical Preservation Society events. She always was willing to give whatever she could with a smile and a twinkle in her eye. I enjoyed listening to her share family stories. I will treasure our last conversations we had about life after she received her diagnosis. She was a brave and delightful person to be around. She will be greatly missed in our community. May she rest in the peace she so well deserved. My thoughts are with Gary and family since we cannot be there to celebrate her life with you all.

I have known Ginny for over 30 years. We were neighbors and friends in Butte des Morts. She had one of the kindest spirits I have ever known. She took her faith seriously and put it into practice every day. Wheneversomeone was in need, she was there. She was active in her community helping always to make it a pleasant and happy place to live. When the community needed sewers to assure our people and resources were protected, she was working hard to talk to people about the importance of the project from a public health standpoint and pushed calmly through the controversy to make her case. When her church, civic organizations, and causes needed help, no one had to ask. She was just there to give of herself. And whenever anyone as in need, whether it was an individual or a community organization, Ginny was always there. And in her last months, after she knew her fate, she expressed gratitude for the life she had lived, her family friends and community and was not afraid to face what she knew what was coming. Her faith and spirit gave her that courage. We will all miss her dearly. I extend my sincere symparhies to Gary and the kids for this terrible loss.

We have had the opportunity to enjoy some of the great legacy and wonderful life she led through our friendship with Andy and Amy and seeing their kids grow. We hope you can remember all of the good times and laughter she packed into all of her years and tell stories for years to come. God bless the family, and God bless her.

On behalf of the EAA Medical Unit we submit our condolences and heartfelt sympathy. She was an intricate part of our family. Her energy, twinkling eyes and mischievous smile will greatly be missed. She laughed and worked hard. She always gave great care to all of the patients. She helped us annually with our "MASH" like unit coming to set up, pick up shifts and close down. Her and Gary will forever be in our hearts. She was a true "Nightingale." Once when it wasn't safe for a confused couple who needed care in addition to drive home she stayed overnight with them until a family member arrived the next day. That is caring to the next level which we are sure she will ever be. Vaja con Dios Ginny our friend. Until we all meet again.

On behalf of Mercy Medical Center we all send our sympathy. Ginny worked tireless hours in various departments to help the hospital. She was most noted for her years in the cath lab working with the Cardiologists, Xray, ICU, 4South/PCU1 and the patients. Working cardiac was no irony as she cared and kept everyone near and dear to her heart. Thank you Ginny. Connie Campbell

I worked with Ginny in ICU . What I remember most is she would drink her Pepsi thru a red licorice. Said it tasted like a cherry coke. So sorry for your lose. She was a great person.
