Virginia “Ginny B” as her husband called her, loved baking cookies and candy. She also enjoyed playing bingo, cards and gambling. She also loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She requested that there be no flowers or calling hours. She asked that you just remember the kind things she did for friends and family and not to mourn her passing, but go on in life and keep her forever in your memory and heart, which is where she kept all of us, always in her heart.
