May it comfort you to know others are thinking of you at this difficult time. Prayers and thoughts to the family. Beth Blaine-Niksa and Bob Niksa, Crystal Lake, IL
It was a great pleasure to have worked with Ginny for many years. She was thorough and diligent in every way when she was at her job. But, she was also much more than that. She was kind to everyone, she was thoughtful and wise, and she was invariably straightforward and honest no matter what situation was presented to her. Without a doubt I was better at my job because I was fortunate enough to have known and worked with Ginny.
My wife Beverly and I only knew Virginia for 3 weeks and we believed her to be the epitome of grace - a truly fine lady!

We were so sorry to hear of Virginia passing. She will always be remembered by her lunch ladies from ‘57 Whitehall with her cheerful smile and happy laughter. We really enjoyed having lunch with her

Thoughts and prayers to each of Virginia's family and friends. She was a very special and dear child of the Lord's. Ruth Wilson
Dear Family, this will sound silly, but I always remember how well turned out Virginia was. At Sunday service (to which I was privy most of my childhood!), she had her hair done and a nice outfit. She was a good example to a young girl of how to put your best foot forward. Virginia was also a dear friend to my mother Carol. The good times the two and them and the other cousins had are too numerous to name here. But, I remember their laughter! Mostly, us kids had no idea what the joke was but our moms were happy together and that was good enough for us. Thank you, cousin Virginia, you will be missed by all.
Family and Friends of Virginia, My condolences for the loss. Virginia was an example to me of a woman with a cheerful spirit even amid hardships. I am grateful for the last few months of Bible study with her because it strengthened me to not only with more faith but with remembering to always find the good even amid hardships. Judy Sturges
I’m saddened by Virginia’s passing...she was a wonderful sweet woman...but I’ll always remember the times we talked when she and the family were at the Bible House for the conventions.
It's hard to say good bye to Bible study buddie. Looking forward to the resurrection morning! Love and prayers for the family. Kathy Larkin
