During the war years, Ginny was a welder for Graham Trailers in Delphos. While there, she met and fell in love with her supervisor, Paul McKee. They were happily married for 57 years. Ginny was a remarkable wife and mother, always putting her family first. Her kids’ biggest fan, she celebrated every victory and was there to console every disappointment. She was happiest sharing family meals around the table, eating homemade noodles along with fried chicken or pot roast. She was very proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, making sure that their special days were remembered with a card and dollar tucked inside. Their hugs, visits, and phone calls gave her comfort and joy. Her hand painted elves that climb up every family’s Christmas tree will be forever cherished.
The family would like to thank the Meadows of Delphos for the care they provided the last two years.
