When we moved to Lancaster from California in 1971 and joined St James Episcopal Church, Ginny and Tom were our assigned mentors and greeters. With a year old baby we were so happy with the warm reception we received and the time spent with the Atkinsons both at church and at their home on Mayflower Circle. Ginny was involved with nursery care at church for both of our girls. A wonderfully woman and our prayers go out for her family and her soul.

Although I hadn’t seen Ginny for a few years now, I was always very fond of her. I will remember Ginny for her easy smile, her wit, her wisdom, and her obvious love of family. May God comfort you now after her passing.

JIM AND I WERE SO VERY SORRY TO LEARN OF THE LOSS OF YOUR WONDERFUL MOTHER. I KNEW GINNY FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS. SHE WAS AN AVON CUSTOMER OF MINE BUT MORE THAN THAT, SHE WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN MY CHILDREN AND NEVER FAILED TO ASK ABOUT THEM. I ALWAYS MADE HER THE LAST CUSTOMER OF THE DAY AND WE WOULD SIT AND CHAT FOR AWHILE. SHE WAS PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN MY DAUGHTER’S JOURNEY THROUGH MEDICAL SCHOOL. WHAAT A DELIGHT SHE WAS TO TALK TO. THE LAST TIME I TALKED WITH HER SHE WAS LIVING AT WOODCREST BUT I DID NOT REALIZE SHE WAS ILL AND DIDN’T KNOW SHE MOVED TO THE MASONIC VILLAGE. SHE WILL BE MISSED.
