Obituary Condolences

Mom, Grandma Ginny passed away on 11/28 following an 18 month battle with cancer at age 86. Preceded in death by husband Mo (Oct. 2005) and daughter Kathy (Nov. 1996), and sister Patricia. Ginny is survived by son Mike (Lisa) and children Jackson and Ellie (Duluth); Patricia "Trish"; special grand-daughters Carolyn (Jake) and Westin (born Sept 2013); Ginny (Marshall, MN). Ginny was an inspiration and help to many as she mentored and sponsored recovering alcoholics during her 40 years of sobriety. Many other relatives and friends of all ages will miss her caring and kindness. Her friendship was a gift. Special thanks to Craig Neils and Russell Pyle who graciously and unselfishly walked this declining path with her.
