Ginny Bourdon, born July 25, 1948, passed away peacefully on October 17, 2012. Although a native of Rochester, NY, she worked for 27 years for the Defense Supply Center in Richmond, VA. She greatly enjoyed singing in the St. Edwards Catholic Church Choir. She received degrees from Nazareth College Cum Laude, Boston College, and the Rochester Institute of Technology Highest Honors.
She and her husband Richard had a deep and wonderful love for each other during their 10 years together. They enjoyed retiring to the Va. Beach waterfront community, Ocean Shore Condominium in 2007. Ginny loved her long walks, aerobics at the City’s excellent recreation centers, volunteering at the City’s Animal Adoption Center, working at the food pantry of her church, and the Red Cross. She loved to travel. Ginny was such a kind and gentle person an eye bank donor that she made many, many long-lasting friends.
In addition to her loving husband Richard, she leaves behind a brother, Jim Ehrstein of Rockville, Md., a sister, Rosalyn Deutsch of Rochester, and many relatives.
A memorial service 11:00 and reception afterwards is planned at the Holy Family Catholic Church, 1279 N. Great Neck Rd. on Friday October 26. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Va. Beach Animal Adoption Center, 241 S. Birdneck Rd., Va. Beach, 23451.
She made a real difference in so many lives. I loved you dearly Ginny. I’m just trying to make it through each day. Yours Forever, Richard. Online Condolences may be expressed at www.cremate.org.
