Memories Timeline


  1. In all the years we have known her, she has always been giving to those in need She will definitely be missed. God bless her, and you her family.

  2. We always remember and appreicate Ginny’s great kindness in looking out for my Dad, Elmer Staats. We thank you for everything you did and know that you are in our prayers in your time of loss.

  3. She was perhaps the sweetest woman I have ever known and I am blessed to have had her as my Grandmother. I will always treasure the lessons and love she shared with me and wish I could hug her one last time. Her kindness and memory will be carried on by many. She was truly an angel.

  4. Dearest Grandma and Great Grandmama, Thank you for all the smiles, hugs and laughs. I will always cherish the lessons you shared with me and (when she gets a little older) i will pass them along to your great grand-daughter. We love you… love Gretchie and Kayla

  5. She was the most loving, caring, giving, generous, devoted, wonderful, extraordinary mom a family could ever have, and while those who love her share a profound sense of loss, she wants us to celebrate her life, rather than mourn her death. Her dedication to Christian charity was blessed as she departed in peace, in her sleep, following a banquet with old friends. No doubt she is at work in God’s garden, nurturing the flowers she will use to grace the Sunday altar.

  6. What wonderful memories and lessons she has left to all of us. Aunt Ginny was a loving, giving, true southern lady, with emphasis on lady!! She was elegant, strong, and had a huge heart. She surely will continue to live in all our hearts. Love to all. Debbie.

  7. Aunt Ginny was one of the few people I know that lived her life to the fullest. She never took a day for granted. She was a kind, gracious, loving lady who was so dear to all of us in the family. She loved God, her family and friends. She always treated everyone with the upmost respect. I know that she is in God’s Kingdom because she earned her wings long before she reached heaven. She will be missed but never forgotten. I was so blessed to have her in my life and I have a lifetime of wonderful memories that will keep her alive in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers are with all that knew and loved her.

  8. Ginny Johnson, “my Sister In-Law, my Sister, my Friend”. SHE will always be held close within my heart. Always so gracious and giving of herself, we will miss her smile, her gentle voice saying “Darling” in her sweet southern voice. She will always live in our HEARTS. Cathy Wisener Duke Latham
