Ginny was born on December 7 1916 in Cincinnati Ohio to Thomas and Rosalind White. She was one of four children.

In 1952 Ginny and her family moved to Grand Rapids and became early members of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish. Ginny loved Grand Rapids and IHM where she met and cherished her life-long friends always regaling them with her one-liners even into her 90s. One of her favorites was I still have a tongue in my head and I intend to use it! Ginny lived a full life traveling the world with Carl and scoring a couple of holes-in-one along the way. She was always there for her family and friends and by the grace of God was able to express her love for them almost until the day she died.
