Julie and Rex, I'm sorry for your loss, looks like a long live well lived. My positive thoughts for healing are with you and your families :)
Ginny was a smile and warm welcome whenever you walked into Farmers Savings Bank in Beaman. As a novice bank teller, she was my mentor, friend and most excellent example of customer service. Her joy of living and giving is the best tribute I personally strive for every day. I am so honored to have been taught by the best.
I always enjoyed her smile and our talks about vacations.
