Ginny was a voracious reader and passed this trait down to her children and grandchildren. She was heavily involved with the local Christian Women’s Club and many church related activities including managing the book collection at her church as volunteer librarian for many years. Ginny felt it her civic duty to help with elections and worked as a part-time election worker for many years with the Grand Haven Charter Township Clerk’s Office. Virginia resided at Christian Haven Home in Grand Haven since 2014 where she enjoyed the comradery of friends and staff and loved to participate in the many events provided there. She especially liked to take walks, attend and facilitate Bible studies, and garden: her two large garden boxes were known for their beauty and the variety of her flowers. Virginia delighted in the company of her family and friends and will be missed by many.
