She was the daughter of James and Evelyn Lynch and spent her childhood in Bloomfield, NJ, graduating from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, Newark NJ.

She had a lifelong commitment to the service of others by volunteering at her church, Swimming River School, Riverview Hospital, local nursing homes and Spring House.
As a member of Beacon Hill Country Club with her husband Peter, Ginny became an avid golfer and enjoyed the many social evenings there with friends and family. Ginny had an artistic soul that was expressed through her many paintings, crafts and gardens. Above all, Ginny loved her family and treasured her time spent with them.
