Most people knew her as Nanny and Lil’ Ginny. Nanny was loving, caring and would give you the shirt off her back. She was devoted to her grand kids and lived her life for them. Nanny took life as it came and never complained no matter how hard the situation got. She not once judged any of us on the decisions we made and loved us even more for the bad ones. She opened her home to so many when no one else would and never asked for anything in return. Although short in size, her heart was the size of the universe. Nanny will forever be missed but never forgotten. Rest peacefully Nanny because we will be ok. – Family.
