DEAN-PETERSON, Virginia N. "Ginny" Virginia passed away peacefully on Wednesday (July 1, 2009) at home after a five year battle with ovarian cancer. By her side were her loving husband Ron, and very caring and professional hospice R.N., Jenny Hoppe. Ginny was born in New Haven on April 2, 1951. She graduated from Enfield H.S. in Enfield in 1969. She also graduated from Windham Nursing School in 1971. She worked for many years at St. Francis Hospital in Santa Barbara as an LVN. Her last employer was Bega-US in Carpenteria where she was a purchasing agent for seven years. She is survived by her soul mate and husband of 18 years, Ronald Peterson. She is also survived by her sisters, Debbie Dean of Oak Bluffs, MA, Andrea Booth (husband Tim), of Oldsmar, FL, and Robie Kelly of Silver Springs, FL. Also her brothers, Holgate Dean (wife Bernie) of Costa Mesa, CA and Mike Dean (wife Pauline) of East Windsor. Also her sister-in-law, Bethel Rooney (husband Tom) of Fairfield.

She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, and step grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Huestis, and father, Richard Dean. Ginny became a beacon of strength and compassion to many. Life surely would not have been the same without her sense of humor, laughter, caring nature and thoughtfulness to friends and family alike. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of the Neptune Society. The family wishes to give special thanks and appreciation to the Doctors and Staffs of Hany R. Khalil, M.D. of Simi Valley, Ramsey C. Ulrich, M.D. of Ventura, and the TLC Home Hospice of Moorpark. Their professional and compassionate care given Ginny will never by forgotten.
