We are so saddened to learn of Ginny’s passing. We were friends at St. Paul’s and often sat in the same pew. She always chatted with us, asking after Phil’s health. They compared notes on health issues. I enjoyed hearing her hum or sing quietly along with the choir. She will be so missed among her church family. I’m so glad to have known Ginny!
