Obituary Condolences

Of Virginia Beach, formerly of Chalfant Borough, 69, died on December 28 in her first home, Pittsburgh, PA. Ginny was the beloved firstborn of the late Margaret and the late Fred Antolovich, of Chalfant Borough. She was the most loving sister of Penny Antolovich of Chalfant Borough; and wife of John Bodnar of Virginia Beach, VA. She took great satisfaction in being the unofficial matriarch to most of her first and second cousins. In her second home, Virginia Beach, VA, Ginny's army of friends enriched her life, as she did theirs. They included her life-long friend, Beverly Nabors; her forever friends from Bayside Elementary. Her school friendships nurtured during her 32 years as a first grade teacher in the Virginia Beach Schools, the Y Ladies and, of course, the 45th Street Beach Gang. For those who loved her, we were in awe of her indomitable spirit. We take comfort in knowing that our wonderful Ginny is now with God in her blessed eternal home.
