Virginia “Ginny” L. Chick
March 20, 1930 – November 25, 2022
Virginia “Ginny” Lee Adamson was born on March 20, 1930, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Mabel and Red. She was the middle child with an older sister, Mary Lou, and a younger brother, Gene. Ginny graduated from Roosevelt High School and started working at Northwestern Bell. There she met Don Chick, fell in love, and they married in 1952. Don and Ginny had two daughters, Debbie and Dee, whom they loved with all their hearts. While raising the girls, she volunteered wherever there was a need in school, at church, and
Scouts. Golf, playing cards, and cheering on the Big Red were activities she shared with friends. Virginia and Don enjoyed golf trips and wintering in warmer climates.
Grandchildren Kelli, Kristin, Morgan, Kevin, Molly, Matthew, Emily, and great-grandchildren Reagan, Olivia, Grant, Ezra, Abby, June, Ben, and Charlie were her delight. They knew that GG was there to love and support them in their lives and every endeavor.
Virginia was happiest when she was busy. Golf, volunteering at church and Lakeside Hospital, and playing bridge and dominos with friends filled her days. Friday nights were reserved for her younger friends, Joyce, Nancy, and Jan. Monday evening was Wine and Whine with her good friend, Mary.
She lived her last four years at The Heritage at Sterling Ridge. She found a group of friends who shared her sense of humor. The family thanks the Heritage staff in the assisted living and memory care units. We appreciate your kindness and love toward Ginny (and us). And to the CHI Hospice team, thank you. You came alongside of us and gave her dignity and space to complete her life on earth.
Mom, you were a strong, practical, fun-loving, kind, caring woman, and we were blessed to have you in our lives.
