Ginny was a very smart woman. She was beautiful and she had a big heart. I know she felt for people who suffered. I know she put on a face as if she had not a care in the world, but under it all, she understood suffering and loneliness and loss, and she felt the sadness that the people who came for comfort felt. She will be remembered. In knowing that she is no longer a fixture in Northwest Chicago on Belmont Ave. is disconcerting for me, a transplant who is feeling the sun here in East LA, 80 degrees outside, and yet I felt more warmth in Chicago in the middle of winter from the wonderful trustworthy people there than I have ever felt here in California. A little birdie told me you are dong okay up in heaven and you are still doing your magic to help people who need it. Like Clarence, the angel in "It's a Wonderful Life" produced by Frank Capra, you are finding the souls that are most in need and giving them a new perspective on life. You are always there for us, Ginny. You are still in our hearts.

Ginny was my first boss when I served coffee as a teenager with my twin sister Donna and our neighbor friends Liz and Roseanne at the Montclair Funeral Home. She bought us the most delicious pecan coffee cakes to serve to the guests who would come downstairs for coffee. She was a tough cookie, but she was so beautiful and seemed to have it together in a way that impressed me in ways that lasted me my whole life. When I heard that she passed away, I was surprised at how sad I was. I thought I didn't like her because she scared me a little, but on remembering her, I realize that she was my role model. Her grace and beauty and firm discipline with us, the teen-aged girls in the neighborhood, was an example of what it would be like to be a strong career woman in charge. We would work after high school and do homework until the people would come down for coffee, but sometimes we would run out of coffee, so we would sneakily mix tea and coffee together at the end of the night so we wouldn't have to make another big pot of coffee, and I wonder if anyone ever noticed. We thought it was hysterically funny, and 50 years hence, I am still laughing about it. That wasn't nice, but Ginny never said anything about the strange coffee. I miss the idea of her being there even though I haven't been to Chicago in years. I will never forget her. She was my first boss. I was a bit intimidated by her beauty, but she didn't fire me for sneaking all those little pieces of pecan cake to eat instead of leaving them for the mourners. Rest in peace, Ginny. When I think of you, I think of the Bahamas. I hope you are happy in heaven now with all the people you have helped to transition over the years. You made them look so beautiful with your artistic talent with make-up. You were beautiful too- inside and out.
