Virginia “Ginia” Beth York

Virginia “Ginia” Beth York 6-13-1940 born in Brownwood Texas 10-26-2017 passed in Forest City. “Go Look Into The Mirror” she said. “Now, make sure you are looking directly into your eyes.” Repeat after me, “My Mother Loves Me!” If it weren’t for the fact that the whole exercise seemed so silly, I might never have done it in the first place, but this simple little act of love and humor at the same time has shaped who I am today, and continues to work wonders of self-love in Ginia’s family. From her daughters to her great-grandchildren alike, Ginia always had a way of sending love along with her wild sense of humor. She never wanted any of us to take life so seriously that you can not laugh at yourself or through any tough situation. Her legacy is live, love, and laugh! It has saved us all a countless number of times! Ginia loved children, especially teenagers with whom she worked with as a nurse at Hidden Valley H.S. in Oregon. She changed many lives. Whether working in the garden, canning, fishing, driving the golf cart, storm watching, noticing all the animals on a drive, helping anyone she needed to, playing my little ponies, making special pastrami sandwiches, entertaining bugs in the pockets, or even eating chocolate. Her most favorite thing in the world was her family. Those whom she left behind include two brothers, three daughters, five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, loyal friends till the end, and her little dog Toby. We will carry her in spirit and look forward to seeing her again to share how many more times we have visited “The Mirror” and have taught it to many more. Cremation rites have been accorded. With special thanks to Linda, Theresa, Tonya, Becky, Donna and Tamara.
