Ginny Jorgensen , age 96, of Quincy, died Monday, June 22, 2020, at 4:00 am in Bradford Villa.

Ginny was born March 26, 1924 in Paris, Missouri, the daughter of John M. and Margie B. Vaughn Fulton. She married Harry A. Jorgensen on July 16, 1955 in Quincy, Illinois. He preceded her in death on September 5, 2005.

She attended a one-room country school in Monroe County, Missouri through the eighth grade. Upon graduation, she attended and graduated from Paris High School in Paris, MO. Mary left Paris to attend Quincy's Gem City Business School, and Quincy became her home ever since.

Ginny worked at Harris Corporation, Gates Radio, and Moorman Manufacturing. She and her husband also owned and operated a Mobile Service Station in Quincy during the 1960's. She was a long time member of Grace United Methodist Church, where she served on the kitchen committee for several years and as their pianist for Saturday services. After Grace closed, Life Point Church became her home church.

Ginny loved counted cross-stitching, jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles, reading, yard work, and tending to her flowers in the yard and in the house. She also volunteered for 33 years, or 16,782 hours, at RSVP, and at Meals on Wheels.

Ginny is survived by her niece, Janet (Miller) Owings, of Moberly, MO, and their children, Brenda (David) Hitch, of Kingsport, TN, and Randal (Stephanie) Owings, of Mexico, MO; great-great nieces, Elaine Hitch (Brad) Ervin, of Knoxville, TN, Christine Hitch, of Nashville, TN, and Rachel Owings, of Mexico, MO; and a great-great nephew, Steven Owings, of Mexico, MO.

In addition to her husband, Ginny was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Robert Fulton, Uncle James Fulton, and three aunts, Mary Fulton, Ana Ria Fulton, and Emma Knight.

I bought my first house next door to Ginny and Harry 40 years ago. They were very good neighbors. Ginny always walked over to our house with Harry’s big shoes on. As life went on Ginny gave Christmas ornaments to our 3 children for years. We lost touch for a few years, but she always called my husband “Andy” her boyfriend. She said we were the children she never had. I thank God I was able to closely share her life the last couple of years. Ginny may you rest in peace! Love you!

Ginny was the most loving person. I enjoyed getting to know her when I worked a in the office at Adams County RSVP. She taught me a great deal about life, love and hard work. She had a beautiful smile. I cherish my friendship with Ginny!
