Goodbye Ginny, God Bless

February 09, 2011 - Virginia Hubbard was a truly beautiful person.

Meeting her made an everlasting impression.

She had a magnetism.

At times, she showed a mischievous look in her eyes, a sassiness in her remarks, but her friendliness and kindness always showed through.

We've been swapping jibes for over 50 years. She was quick to point out my faults, and at times, I'd find a hair out of place or an insignificant flaw in her demeanor.

But this lady, Ginny Hubbard, was a very fine human being.

She and her late husband, John, took a tree-covered farm and made it a gem for this community known as the Oxford Hills Golf and Country Club.

I was in a Thursday evening golf club playing at Bald Mountain when the Hills opened. We were quick to come to the Hills in its first year.

The Hubbards and Shermans, along with many area families, shared aging, partying, child rearing and civic promotions for all those years.

Ginny had an enthusiasm to envy forever. She was an up-n-at-em person who never seemed to tire.

She will be fondly remembered for a long, long time.
