Virginia Belle “Ginny” Kasson
December 08, 1938 ‒ December 16, 2017
Virginia Belle “Ginny” Kasson, age 79, died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on December 16, 2017 at the Country Court Nursing Home in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.
Ginny was born December 8, 1938 in Olive Green, Ohio to the late Fred and Mamie (Horton) Griffith.
She graduated from Centerburg High School in 1956. Ginny worked for the Knox Savings in Mount Vernon, for 10 years and served as Deputy Clerk for the Municipal Court in Mt. Vernon, Ohio for 24 years.
She was a lifetime member of the Centerburg United Methodist Church.
She enjoyed bowling, and playing cards with friends, over the years, and enjoyed watching television and visiting with family and friends, as her health declined in the past several years. In the past she and Kenny enjoyed traveling to all 50 states and for many years took a yearly trip to Myrtle Beach S. Carolina.
She also loved her many collections. Her biggest joy was her family, whom will all miss her love and humor, so very much.
Ginny will be dearly missed by her loving husband of 57 years, Kenny; her daughters Kelly Gibson (Desmond Douglas), Becky (Jim) Tennant, sisters Frances “Carol” Williams and Mary Early; sisters-in-law Patti Botts and Dixie (Homer) Shroyer; grandchildren Whitney (George) Holden and Ginny (Dan) Cunningham; step-grandchildren Michael (Tia) Tennant, Jacob (Kara) Douglas, and Anthony (Kim) Douglas; great-grandchildren Alex and Andrew Holden; step great-grandchildren Blake and McKinley Tennant and Rowan Douglas; along with numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and a host of special friends.
Ginny was preceded in death by parents, grandson Ryan Myers, and step granddaughter Brandy Tennant Carr.
Special thanks to the many people from A Touch of Grace, Country Court Nursing Home, and Knox County Hospice for the wonderful care of Ginny.
