Being greeted every morning by her beautiful smile, made the day much brighter. Ginny was loved by all. Can still hear her voice over the intercom.
May you rest in peace sweet lady.

Dear Nancy,Sue,Masha,Jen and to the entire family of Ginny,
I remember your Mom so well from Alpha Ind 1984. It seems like it was yesterday. The first day I went into fill out application she was wearing a kelly green pant suit with a scarf and jewelry to complete the outfit. She was friendly and kind to me from the start. I know she will be missed and it is the saddest time to loose a loved one but I believe

I am so sorry for the loss of this beautiful woman. Her presence brought joy & even now a smile as I think of her. Her legacy will live on thru her wonderful children & grandchildren. I had the pleasure of getting to know her & some of them while working @ Rosewood. I remember commenting on the natural good looks she obviously passed on to her children, not an ugly one in the whole lot & then her responding

I received the news that your mother passed away. My condolences to you and your family, as you know she was loved by me and all the other members of the nursing home. Please know that she's in a better place. It was a real pleasure to have taken care or her along you and your family. Please know that as a family and daughters you guys did a wonderful job.

I'm so grateful I go to spend time with Ginny over Thanksgiving. She always loved and appreciated special times at family parties! She had a huge presence, typically surrounded by her beautiful grandchildren, her children and close family friends! And she had great style and interest in everyone! I loved that she used her gym membership all these years (that's true dedication), golfed and formed countless friendships with so many! She loved and was truly loved! Blessings to all of Ginnys friends and family. She will be missed.

Ginnie was the voice and the presence that made Alpha Industries a classy place to work.Her voice & smile brightened the lobby & she was loved by everyone. She welcomed me to Woburn & taught me lots of insider things.The world is shedding a tear for losing her beautiful spirit.Well done Ginnie, Rest in Peace.

I was heartbroken when I heard of Virginia's passing. I will miss her daily visits to the lobby (my "office") after lunch with any one of her wonderful daughters or grandchildren. I will also miss her sweet smile and her compliments on my many pairs of shoes. She could also be quite funny and would sometimes lack a filter on some of her comments which would make Marsha practically turn inside out in embarrassment. I appreciated some of those unfiltered

I met Ginny last Christmas. She was a joy... very spry and full of spirit. She has a wonderful family...her children and grandchildren are her living legacy...a credit to Ginny's enduring role model as a loving mother...grandmother...human being.
May God Bless Ginny

So very sorry to hear about Virginia's passing. She was one in a million. Always, fun and caring of others. She was so creative with her projects with me, she really had fun doing creative things. Virginia was very lucky, to have such a caring and loving family always there for her, and others at Rosewood. That is such a tribute to Virginia as a person. We all appreciated the Virginia we grew to love over the years. She will be missed by so many. Always grateful ,Denise Carye Activities Rosewood
