Ginny was born in Essex England in 1933. Soon after completing Secretarial College, in Cambridge England, she and her family moved to Canada and settled in Vanderhoof BC. In Vanderhoof, she met the love of her life, Vic, and in October of 1953 they married. They welcomed their son Rick in 1954 and then in 1958 their small family moved to Kitimat where daughter Jill was born. They moved to Terrace BC in 1960. In the late 60’s, Ginny began working in the office at the Skeena High School and later moved over to BCTel where she worked for 25 years as a secretary in the network office until her retirement in 1994. Ginny was an avid reader and gardener.
Her beautiful garden and very full bookshelves show that passion.
