    Mike and family – my condolences to all of you. Ginny is going to be deeply missed. She touched the lives of many with her kind and giving nature, always there to lend a hand. I feel very fortunate to have known her and the time spent with her.

    Ginny was a delight to work with and will be missed by many, many people. I worked with her in the orchard, at a Master Gardener booth and other venues. She was always friendly and kind.

  3. Terra Brett says:

    Ginny was one of the coolest, funniest, most giving people I’ve met. She loved working with the Master Food Preserver program, and she helped train me and so many others. She will be missed by all of us. She always had a sly smile or funny comment for me, and loved my tattoos. Wishing you well wherever you are, Ginny.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    I met Ginny through Master Gardeners and was always impressed that she always took a moment out of her day to be thankful, grateful and positive.

    Such a Blessing!

    Ginny was one of my favorite Master Gardener people and I always looked forward to seeing her. She frequented my Home Depot garden center on Warner ave and always made me laugh. Ginny was just a wonderful real person and I will miss her. I feel blessed and fortunate to have known her. Thank you, Mark LaMorte

  9. Stephanie Prideaux says:

    Ginny, you’re such a beautiful soul. Thank you for always being kind, friendly, spunky, and just you. I’m saddened to hear of your passing, but happy it was spent with loved ones. You will be missed.

    To Mike and Family
    Thank you so much for sharing you wonderful wife and sister with me, she will be sorely missed. Always smart as a whip and fiesty, but so thoughtful and kind to others and ready to help when she can. I looked back at all the times spent volunteering with her at Orange Coast College, planting, transplanting, helping out at the Spring and Pointsettias Plant Sale. Her guidance and advice for classes that I’ve taken with her has been so helpful. I’ve always admired how smart and quick she was with her answer and response. I called her phone last week to let her know that I will be graduating from the Master Gardener Program but her voicemail was full and and being Ginny, she was probable busy doing taxes and that I’ll see her at the OCC Spring Plant Sale. The last time I saw her was at John Kabashima retirement banquet, we would pile out plates high with food and desserts and laughed cause we love to eat.
    Sincerely, Esa Kiefer

  11. John Kabashima says:

    To Mike and Family,
    I was saddened and surprised when I found out that Ginny passed away. I remember when I first met her, she was one of my students in the Orange Coast College Pest Management class. She told me of her accident and how horticulture was a therapy for her as she was recovering. She became a friend of my wife and I and one of my dearest Master Gardeners who always made me smile when I saw her mischievious smile. Ginny had all the qualities one could wish for in a friend; intelligence, humor, loyalty, honesty, and someone you could always count on. I will miss her dearly.

  12. Norma Yarbrough says:

    Ginny was a kindred soul. I always enjoyed talking to her on just about everything. She was so considerate and thoughtful. When persimmons were in season, she would drop some off at my house as she knew I loved to dehydrate them for my mother (may she rest in peace). Life is too short and friends like Ginny don’t come around that often. I cherish the time I was able to spend with her.
