In addition, Ginny loved to travel being the unofficial tour guide of the family. An avid reader, she had an extensive book collection. Her biggest joy was her son Michael, his wife Kim, and her granddaughter, Madeleine. Ginny spent most of her adult life in Huntington Beach, California. She moved back to Santa Cruz in 2008.
