Virginia "Ginna" Wescott was known by many as Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Godmother, Friend, and most important of all a loving Wife, Mother, and Nanny (Grandmother). Her memory will be forever with us, we will remember her telling us how she loved racing cars in Colorado and of her travels to Las Vegas and most recently to Puerto Rico to attend her son's wedding. For us, her children, she will be remembered for always making sure that we got to practice/ games on time, for making sure we got home before the street lights came on and always seeming to know exactly what we were up to and making sure that we kept on the right path. Our lives were filled with our time with her at family gatherings, annual camping trips with our entire extended family, and Sunday dinners. She was most excited of her role as Nanny to her two Grandsons and Granddaughter, having them in her arms brought her the greatest joy. We are and will forever be blessed to call her our Mom.
