Ginny was the kind of lady you would have wanted for your mom. She knew how to create a warm family life and chose to be a homemaker most of her life, even though she had earned a master's degree in zoology.
Her strong faith was her guide as she helped her family find their way in life. She was a very active member of First Lutheran Church.
Ginny felt called to be a foster family through Lutheran Social (Family) Service, and over the course of nine years cared for babies who came to live with her family until they were adopted.
As a 37-year TOPS member, she influenced many to keep their weight in check and become healthier.
Ginny and husband Pete had five children, Karen (Garth) Aronson, Cheryl (Bob) Zapf, Pam (Bob) Johnson, Leigh (Julie) Haug and Chad Haug; 15 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Peter; grandson, Erik; and her parents, Guy and Lula Uber.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial to First Lutheran Church or Lutheran Family Service.
