Dearest Ginny—your warm, sweet smile reflects the beautiful and fun loving woman you were. Your kindness, loving personality and great humor will never be forgotten. Walk in peace now with God. To the family: Your mom was blessed to have such loving & caring children and you were equally blessed with such a wonderful, hard working mom.

My loving mother Virginia Bernadette (Welsh) Lee was the ideal mom, she gave everything she had to raising us right with all the love she could give and more. Her dedication and love to her five children was amazing. My Mother tought us the value of family and she dedicated her life to us. We watched her decorate and cook for every holiday and birthday while singing along to the holiday songs and always keeping that beautiful smile and one of a kind laugh. My siblings and I all followed her ways and are keeping her traditions of making birthdays and holidays exciting,fun,family oriented and something to look forward to like she showed us while growing up. Whether it was my mom letting us bang pots and pans with wooden cooking spoons at midnight on our New Year's Eve party's she had at our house or having us always go get a New Year's pretzel like her parents taught her for new years day, or making sure we had valentine's day cards and candy or hiding plastic eggs with money in them for us to find before taking our food to get blessed at church for easter dinner that she stayed up all night cooking, or celebrating mothers and fathers day, taking us to see fireworks and decorating for Halloween and always having a big family Thanksgiving dinner together that she cooked all herself like no other and her favorite thing, putting up Christmas lights and our tree together as a family as she sang jingle bells her own way,hahaha, she always made it so special and memorable and im very thankful for that. She made every birthday so special for us and made sure we had gifts. She always made everyone laugh and smile,that was her thing and I will miss that about her the most besides her ever lasting love she made us feel. My mom always told us how proud she was of us all, which really helped us all in hard times. She gave us an A+ for taking care of her while she was sick and that all we wanted to do was make my mom feel loved and proud of us. She kept humor till the end and showed no fear. My mom is the strongest person i know and she gave me the strength I show. My mom instilled the value of family in all of her kids that she raised and that value was even extended to our friends who have watched our family through all the years stick together through good and bad times. Although my parents marriage didnt physically last forever, it spiritually did, they never stopped loving each other and I know that for a fact and thats love. They werent perfect but who is. They tought and loved their kids and family and thats all that matters. It was very important for my mom to know that we would always stick together and be family and be there for each other. That really pays off in times like this and especially during this unexpected loss to us all but through this experience we had with my mom, we have grown closer than ever and bonded with each other stronger than ever, so she is still keeping her family close and together like she wanted. As you all know my mom would give the shirt off her back to a stranger and never asked for anything. She loved to cook for her five kids and whatever friends we had over our house. It made her so happy to take care of us and she said she would raise us all again and thats a true Mother. We are all blessed that she was/is in our lives and I know we will all dearly miss her and who/what she was/is in our lives.   Whenever you are feeling down, just think of my mom's smile and her laugh and that will cheer you up. She loved you all so much, I thank you for being who you were to My beautiful mother Virginia (Ginny) Bernadette (Welsh) Lee I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND MISS YOU MOM! Thank you for life and everything you have sacrificed for your children. Love Your Son, Christopher Lawrence Lee
To all, I was thinking about her this past week and was going to give her a call. I wish I didn’t hesitate to try to get a hold of her. Ginny was the best. I met her years ago when our kids were in Ingram school. Use to go to Pips Diner to have breakfast when she worked there. She was like a energizer bunny kept going and going. I wish I would of seen her but she didn’t want that but talking on the phone was good. She made you laugh. I’m truly sorry for your loss. Carolyn Waldner
