Dear Beske Family, Ginny was a blessing in my life. A true friend and always said what was on her mind. I loved those things about her. She was always there for me and I tried to do the same with her. We talked nearly every day...I will miss that. She was my "Eating Out" partner and we shared many a meal together. We were good company for each other, laughed and cried together. I would never wish her back. She had gone through so much pain and suffering the last couple of years. Now she is dancing up a storm!!! LOL She took a part of my heart in her passing and that's ok, because she filled a bigger part of my heart. Love and prayers to all the family. God keep you all in His care.

I had the privilege of knowing your mom through the hospital. She was a very special person and a lot of fun to be around. I saw her a year ago and she was so happy that she could retire and spend time with her grandchildren and great grand child. She was very proud to work at Beaver Dam hospital. I am sorry for your loss. I am sure she was special to all of the family.

My sympathy to all who loved her. I'll always remember her working side by side with my Cousin Debbie at the hospital. So great they remained friends all these year. So nice of you to mention Deb in the obit. It's so hard to lose a parent. My thoughts & prayers are with you all during your time of grieving & beyond.
