Ginny was born June 21, 1931 in Buckeye Lake, to the late Charles Theodore and Blanche Beulah (Woolard) Leindecker. She passed away on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at Mount Carmel East Hospital.
Ginny grew up in Buckeye Lake and lived most of her adult life in Hebron. She was a member of the First Community Church of Buckeye Lake and was also a member of the Hebron New Life United Methodist Church. Ginny retired from AT&T after 32 years of service. Life began for her after retirement. She took line dancing, tap and jazz lessons at Harmony Hall at Buckeye Lake and the Licking County Aging Program. She danced in recitals at the Sweetcorn Festival and for seniors at the Center. She was a member of Curves of Buckeye Lake for a long time. She walked the Indian Mound Mall floors for many, many miles. Ginny enjoyed life to the fullest and exercise kept her young.
Ginny spent lots of time shopping with her friend, Pam VanSky. She loved all of her great-grandkids dearly but was closest to Carmeron who was her buddy. Her last goal was to see him graduate and she did! She was loved by many and will be greatly missed by many more. Fly Home, Miss Ginny, Fly Home!
She is survived by five children, Deborah (Gerald) Hughes, Tom (Rita) Baumgartner, Jane Spivey, John Spivey and Jim (Angie) Baumgartner; grandchildren, Angie, Stacey and Steve; great-grandchildren, Racheal, Cameron, Ryleigh, Harmony, Noah, Jenna and Cash; a special niece, Dottie Schoop; many other nieces and nephews; and special friends, Pam VanSky and Sharon Linville.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John; six brothers and four sisters.
