One response to “Virginia B. “Ginger” Yount”

  1. To the families of Ginger and Lee,
    I am at a loss for words but would like to somehow convey my deepest sympathy.

    I’ve known Ginger since she was born. Our paths kept crossing as our families were also friends and church family at Calvary Baptist Church. Then Ginger and I both worked for Richmond County Schools and our paths would cross there. She is among the sweetest of God’s children.

    Although we have not been in touch very often since retirement, I am already missing her. But I know she is with Jesus and her precious Jerry.

    My Deepest Sympathy,
