    I worked with Virginia “Ginny” for many years from the early 1990’s to the mid 200o’s at an insurance company. She was a good worker, pleasant to talk to, and a very nice and decent person. I will always have good memories of her.

  2. My condolences to your family. I remember the fun times Virginia and Frank had with my parents during the square dance days.
