Virginia Ruth Adams was born in Maryneal on Aug. 25, 1928 to Buster and Jewell Adams. She had been a life long resident of Maryneal. She married Billy Drake Muncy of Slidell in Maryneal on Aug. 21, 1948. She and Billy were involved in ranching in Nolan County their entire married life. Gin, to help supplement the family income, worked in Sweetwater in the 1970s for Fashion Shoes. In the 1980s she began filling in for the postmaster in Maryneal and ultimately serving as Maryneal's Postmaster for 13 years before she retired in 1991.
Gin was always active in the community and the county. A 1946 graduate of Highland High School, she remained a loyal supporter of Highland School playing the piano for graduations and Highland Halloween carnivals over the years, cooking hamburgers and frying pies with the booster club and helping with Highland homecoming planning for decades. She was an active member of the Maryneal Community Center and always helped with event and fundraiser planning for the community. She was a musician and would make an instrument of music out of almost anything, frequently filling crystal water glasses with water and playing them. She began playing the piano at age four, taught by her mother. She played by ear. "If you can hum it, I can play it", she'd say. Her mother had to make her quit playing as a child, having to remind her to eat and play somewhere else. She wrote music, poetry and history of the family, the community, Highland School and was a contributor to Nolan County's history. She loved this country and patriotic music. She was a faithful member of the Maryneal Church of Christ her entire life. Her greatest joy in life were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; they called her GinMama. GinMama was an avid quilter and all the grandchildren got a quilt when they married and a baby quilt for each child they had. Her last quilting project was hand and footprint blocks for each of her 23 great-grandchildren. She enjoyed life with gusto. Her hands and mind were always busy with some project. She continued to mow her own grass well into her 80s. She loved having drop-in visitors but said, "If you're coming to see my house, make an appointment!" She always had a dog or three around. They were her companions and she treated them like they were kids!
The Going Home Celebration of her life will be at 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9, 2015 at McCoy Chapel of Memories in Sweetwater with Jeff Jenkins officiating. The family will accept visitors on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015 at McCoy Funeral Home from 6-8 p.m.
Pallbearers will be her grandsons, Greg Wright, Cody Muncy, Jason Martin, Derek Montgomery, Jeff Stone, Ki Bartlett, Garrett Muncy, Raef Wright and Paul Rothe.
Burial will be in Maryneal Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome and appreciate donations to the Maryneal Church of Christ, Maryneal Community Center, Maryneal Cemetery fund, Maryneal Volunteer Fire Department, or .
