Having just lost my husband (her brother Michael), I know what Gini's family is going through. My heart goes out to each and everyone of them. She would call me just to make sure I was doing well, that's the type of woman she was. Loving, generous, caring and deeply devoted to her family. She will be missed, but never forgotten.

Gini was the type of person who always made you look good. Hard working with a sense of urgency and commitment never wanting to disappoint. Always offering to help when others wouldn’t. A great smile at 19 with a love of life. Not often you get to work with someone for 47 years. Gini will be missed by everyone she touched. Rest In Peace Gini knowing you were loved by so many.
