Ginny was the sweetest person to anyone who had the privilege of meeting her. Her kindness and humility were gifts she shared with all who knew her. Growing up in Delano, she was the class Valedictorian and soon after, married the love of her life, Clarence “Buzz” Matter. The city girl became the farm girl. Working alongside Buzz she raised a family of five Dan, Debbie, Denise, Duane and Darcy. She was the best mother anyone could ask for.
