I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Virginia. She was always a great friend of my mother, Helen Donahue. My mother just passed away on January 22 nd. I’m sure these two wonderful friends are catching up with each other in heaven! They were both wonderful Christian ladies.

Ginnie was a quiet person, but always dedicated to her attendance and church functions; we will certainly miss her and we will also miss her wonderful pies and treats that she baked for all of us.
