  1. Ginny belonged to Mary Clap Wooster Chapter NSDAR in Hamden, Connecticut. She was very involved with our Chapter. She was in charge of Sunshine committee. I’m sending sunshine to you Ginny in your memory.Rest in peace . We will truly miss you.

  2. I will miss you Ms. Ginny. You were one of the reasons that Briana and I remained at Whitneyville UCC. From the greeting we received when we first came as visitors, we felt your love. You always asked how we were doing, supported Briana by attending her plays and providing goodies for Briana and friends on 1st Fridays of the month, helping to give Briana a baby shower, and enjoying A.J.’s little hands when he’d said “peace”
    I will certainly miss our times in the kitchen, laughing while washing the dishes, and us both saying UGH, when we had that grey pot which held the soup left to clean. You were always so thoughtful and giving, with food, clothing, calendars and books to help with the homeless.
    WUCC won’t be the same without you.. Especially our time.

    Much love,
