SHEPLEY, Virginia Carol (Ginny)
August 22, 2020

After a courageous five year battle with cancer, our beloved Ginny passed away peacefully at home, Aug 22,2020, with her loving husband Ian by her side holding her hand. Ginny leaves behind her brother Brian (Susanna) and sister Jennifer (Vic). Born and raised in England Ginny also leaves behind countless family and friends across two continents. Her mindfulness towards others and infectious smile attracted many towards her that she made friends wherever she went. Her gentle way of encouraging others to reach their potential shone through in her work with special needs children. Ginny captivated everyone with her storytelling and beautifully hand written messages, each as special and unique as the person she was writing to. She loved to garden and had recently rekindled her joy for painting. We take comfort knowing that she is now pain free and able to enjoy all of the things she most loved. Love you forever Ginny rest now.

    Belated condolences to Ian & family. I had the fortune of meeting you both again at the WICWC just under a year ago. I had the honor to have first met her as a Nova nurse then as a fellow participant in the writing group. I always remember her lovely voice. Peace.
