Ginny was a life-long crafter and homemaker. She loved to knit, sew and cross stitch anything and she was always making things for others. She loved travelling with her family and friends, throughout North America and Europe. She then used her love of crafting to make beautiful scrapbooks to share her experiences with everyone. Raising 3 boys she acquired a love of sports. But even before they were born, she was a die-hard Cubs fan. She dedicated 25 years serving as a church administrator at Edgebrook Lutheran Church in Chicago, IL and Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Grayslake, IL. Ginny was a two time cancer survivor.
A Memorial Service will be held at Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church at a later date. Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society or the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
