Kas and Ginna moved to Spokane in 1977 and then moved to Anchorage in 1980 where she worked for BP at construction camp #2 in Prudhoe Bay for 6 years. She returned home to Lake Stevens in 1989 after retirement.
Ginna was a long time member of the Salmon Bay Eagles and was a 50 year member of the Kellogg Marsh Grange. She enjoyed trips to Reno with her family and also loved Hawaii. The most important thing to Ginna was her family and what she enjoyed most was spending time with all her kids and grandkids.

Ginna had a special gift of making everyone feel loved. She never met a stranger and never forgot a name or special occasion. Her laugh was infectious and she always had a kind word. She will be sorely missed by all her family and friends.
