Ginny lived in Irving TX for the last 25 years. She graduated from Cobre High School in 1989 and was a starting short stop in three state championships with Cobre Softball. Ginny graduated from Western NM University in 1992 and played softball for the Mustangs, as well. She was described by others as a “great” softball player, an overall athlete, and an even better person. Being so bad, bold, and always trying to be a little bit wiser, she loved living in the big city of Dallas, TX with her loving cat Bunky. She enjoyed listening to music, going to kickboxing classes, and hanging out with friends when she could. She touched the lives of so many people and the memories of her will last forever. Sweet dreams, Ginny.
