She met and married the love of her life, Jake Wolfe in 1945. Jake was an Iowa boy, fresh home from the war. During the course of their 51 years together, they raised three children, Kim, Scott, and Marcia, who were with her at her time of passing in La Quinta, California, June 5, 2012. At one time she ran the Keystone Trailer Park, helped start WB Anderson Trailer & Marine Sales, and was a strong supporter of Jake's decision to found The Bank of the Cascades. Jake passed in 2001. He, equally, supported her desire to open The Copper Room fine dining restaurant and bar, loving the experience and its patrons, becoming "Ginnyy" to all. They traveled the world in their later years and never stopped having fun while enjoying the spectacle of life and nature.
Her passing was a beautiful time, with her children at her side, holding her hand, with the strains of Amazing Grace in the background. Her dog "Woof" gave her one last kiss, and she slipped away.
