Ginny was born January 3, 1947, in Jersey City, New Jersey to Richard and Eleanor Beck. She and her family lived several different places in New Jersey and would summer in Island Heights.

She taught at Brentwood Elementary and then at Tatum Ridge Elementary before she retired. Her teaching career lasted a total of 45 years, the majority of which were in the 5th grade. Ginny loved teaching and taking her students on field trips out into nature to show them the diversity just outside their doors. Ginny was an avid tennis player, loved to travel, had a beautiful singing voice and loved to sing in the choir. She loved Florida and everything that it offered, especially the warm weather and the ability to play tennis outdoors year-round! Ginny made many friends over the years and had been doing a great job with keeping in contact until Alzheimer's disease started to take it's terrible toll. Ginny was an amazing mother, grandmother, teacher, colleague, friend, and mentor. She was a kind-hearted person that had an incredible smile, and she will be missed by so many.
