I am saddened to hear of Mrs. Svec's passing. I was fortunate to get to know her and her family in the past year. Mark Mateya

I was shocked to hear of the passing of Ginny. She was a very sweet lady and will be missed. I was Ginny's Avon lady for many years. I also knew her husband Jimmy as well and she often spoke of her Jimmy. They are now reunited and will live happy ever after together. It was a pleasure knowing both of them and being able to serve them as my customers. We lose our loved ones, but great memories last forever. May it comfort you to know that other cared for her very much. Thoughts & prayers to her Family. Naomi Krom

Mrs. Svec was a great woman who will be missed by many.  She is with Jimmy now, for that is what she truly wanted.
