    Our family chain is broken,
    And nothing seems the same,
    Another link went missing,
    The day God called her name.

    Our dear Virginia will be missed more than words can say. We will always remember her as the calm, gentle lady who quietly went about doing what had to be done even in the excitement and sometimes chaos of Mom's Christmas Day kitchen. She never needed fanfare or great pat on the back; she just knew what needed doing and did it. I always admired her for that and she will remain my role model forever.
    Our hearts go out to you Fred, Linda, Griffin, Ashley, and Russ as we make our way through the very difficult journey ahead....our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Paul and Diana

    I have so many fond memories of Auntie Ginny; from weekend fun at Granny & Grandpa's, family Christmas' to holidays taken together. One that comes to mind and always brings a smile to my face; is that one time our families spent winter break in Palm Springs together. We tried hard to tan our pale Canadian skin and ended up with a burn instead. Auntie Ginny told us that putting vinegar on a burn would soothe our skin and turn it into a nice golden tan. Well, of course, we wanted to return home with this golden tan. With no vinegar in sight, we turned to pickle juice! We dabbed that pickle juice all over hoping for the elusive golden tan. We smelled like we worked in the Bicks pickle factory but dammit we were going to have a tan!
    Sending light, love and comforting hugs. I am so sorry for your loss. Will miss you, Auntie, Leanne Shepel.

    I used to play bingo with Virginia. Absolutely the nicest lady you will ever meet. Always a smile, kind words from her. My condolences to her family, she will be missed.
