    Ginny and I were neighbors for many years and friends for over thirty. I have so many memories it is hard to pick just one.

    Ginny being the Browns fan she was and my kids father (June) a die hard Steelers fan, made game days ( and being neighbors) so much more. When those two teams played against each other Ginny and June would rub it in when their team was doing well. Ginny had this HUGE blow horn and would run up to my door and blow it towards the window every time the Browns got a touchdown!! It was so funny!!

    She was an amazing friend. She taught me how to start a grill fire the right way, and I’ve done it that way ever since. We raised our kids together, spent holiday dinners together, every summer we took our kids to beaches, road trips galore, cooked out every chance we got, fireworks, Kings Island, late nights on the porch just hanging out and talking, She was always there when I needed a friend and the best neighbor I could ask for. She was so funny and I thank God that we met.

    She is deeply missed and I am grateful for our friendship! I loved her like a sister and can’t grasp the fact that she is no longer here. I love you Ginny!

      My best memories of her were when Katie and I went to see Rocky horror picture show together. Well Katie was running late and she was telling me all these facts about the movie. She was such a sweet lady.

    • Stephanie says:

      Thank you so much for your kind and sweet words.

      • Sandy says:

        Ginny and I have been friends since high school. We got along from the start. We were in the choir together at Timken Vocational high with choir director Mr. Wilgus. We loved to listen to music and play yahtzee. If we had enough players we would play cards. I think our best time our families spent together was when we get together and have breakfast. She loved my home made sausage gravy and fried potatoes. She enjoyed so much in life. I will never forget you. Always in my heart.❤

      I just found out about Ginny. What a shock. Ginny was my sister in law many moons ago. Sorry I couldn’t make it to her celebration of life. It was this evening and I didn’t know about it until after it was over. My condolences to all the family. I often wonder how everyone is. I talked to Ginny at Tub’s funeral. Kind of kept tabs on her through a mutual friend. We’ve messaged each other. She was always happy and bubbly. She loved her family dearly. I know some of you claim not to remember me. I’m ok with that. Doesn’t mean I still don’t think of all of you. Ginny never turned her back on me. Your family has suffered so many losses recently. My heart go out to you. Please accept my concern about all of you. You will be in my prayers. Miss you and your laughter Ginny. Say hi to Mark and Tub. Until we meet again in heaven. May God grant all of you peace and understanding in your sorrows.

    I met Ginny in Ellisdale (where I think half of Canton has lived lol) she was a great lady and always a sweetheart we seen each other several times over the years and no matter how much time did or didnt go by it was like we just seen each other yesterday. I just cant believe this but I know you are in Heaven looking down on your wonderful children. Look over us all until we meet again Ginny R.I.H.

  5. Rosanna King says:

    I met Ginny when I became friends, now best friends, with Stephanie. I was 14 years old and my home life was a mess. Steph’s house was my safe haven. I loved watching how Stephanie and Ginny interacted, soaking in their conversations and how attentive Ginny was towards Steph. My mom left when I was 6, so seeing Ginny and Steph showed me what a real mother/daughter relationship was. My favorite memories with Ginny was driving around listening to old school rock and listening to her and Steph talk about memories, or even Ginny telling me stories of her teenage years. I’m gona miss her laugh.. the way she would tell me stories and laugh at herself while telling me.. I’m gonna miss Ginny.
