Virginia "Ginny" Seely Wetzel(1942 - 2018)


Virginia "Ginny" Seely Wetzel passed away on May 26, 2018, at the age of 75. She was born to Aubrey J. Boles and Faye B. Boles on September 12, 1942, in El Centro, CA.

Ginny was at first, and always, a teacher. Either as a profession or in life, she provided wisdom to others. She thrived as a realtor in the Santa Clarita Valley for many years.

Ginny loved traveling near and far with her husband of 30 years, Harvey "Bud" Wetzel. She would always hug trees and loved being out in nature; so her years living in Pine Mountain Club, CA, were special times for her. She taught her children how to enjoy the simple things like watching the clouds, singing songs and just being silly. She called all her loved ones "Hunny Bunny."

Ginny is survived by Bud and her siblings: Teresa (Kurt) and Jerry (Pat); her children: Rick (Laura), Joyce (Mike) and Janine (Tod). She was known as "Grandma Ginny" to seven grandchildren: Michael, Amanda, Madison, Kayla, Grace, Shane, and Lila and three great-grandchildren: Gabriel, Emma and Meredith; and as "Aunt Ginny" to several nieces and nephews.

Ginny was proud of her 34 years of sobriety. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate, in the name of Virginia Wetzel, to either Kern County AA ( or Santa Clarita Valley AA (
