Ginny received her education in the New York City Public School System.

She graduated and then went on to attend John Jay School of Law and later attended Catherine Gibbs School of Business. Ginny also worked in the NYC Dept. of Corrections as a Correction Officer.
Ginny will always be known for cooking and feeding people. She was a “people person.” She also was the dancer of the family. She loved music. Her favorite song was “I’m coming around the rough side of the mountain” by Rev. F. C. Barnes. Ginny loved family; growing up she was very close with her cousins, and they loved to play games such as jumping rope. As an adult, Ginny loved to sit in her window and watch the people at the bus stop. Her favorite show was Law & order. Ginny always had a smile on her face which is why she was given the name “Sunshine.” Her favorite saying was “Thank God for life.”
Ginny was preceded in death by her father, John.
