Ginny enjoyed traveling, the beach, reading, music, photography, cats, and spending time with her family and doting on her precious granddaughters. Ginny and Tony would travel to the great west numerous times to take in the splendors of the National Parks. She put her natural talent to use taking pictures of the wonderful sights she saw. Her love of reading brought her to a place, where she had to keep a log of the books that she had read. Her love of music she brought into her home. Some of the fondest memories for her children is the music and laughter always present in their home. The love of traveling, reading, photography, and music she instilled in her children and grandchildren.
