It is with great sadness that the extended family of Virginia A. Riegert announce her
passing on February 9 at the Villages Regional Hospital in Florida. Ginny or Gin-Gin as
she was known by her nieces and step-grandsons was born in Latonia, Kentucky
across from Cincinnati on September 24,1946. Ginny will be deeply missed by George
Riegert her husband of thirty-six years, step-son Christopher, step-grandsons Evan
and Griffin and step-son Michael Riegert.
Ginny was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Virginia F. (Burlew) Moore and
Robert F. Moore. She is also survived by her sister Roberta and her husband Jim
Titus as well as sister Nancy and her husband Jim Cooper.
Ginny graduated from Holmes High School in 1964 and entered the work force shortly
thereafter. Ginny kept many friends from those long ago days but one grade and high
school group known as the ‘Girls of Summer’ would travel to such places as
Las Vegas and a hot air balloon excursion, with one special New York trip to honor and
remember those lost on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Ginny rose to Assistant Clerk of Court within the Kenton County judicial
system and completed time working for the Commonwealth of Kentucky at Boone
County court system before retiring in October 2013.
Ginny and her husband moved to the Villages in May 2017, after spending more than three
years in a condo unit overlooking the ocean on Jensen Beach.
Ginny became involved with the “Decorating Divas-South” and the “Lunch Bunch”
and valued all the new friendships!
Ginny took great pleasure in being reintroduced to a childhood hobby that she loved as
a youngster – drawing and painting, both watercolor and acrylic being her favorites.
She completed her best work this past Christmas – a winter scene of a country home
with falling snow!
Ginny had a love of any kind of animal but, in particular, dogs. Ginny found a Yorkie Poo
to buy in late December as a mate with her nine year Westie Mickie. Ginny would only
be with the new puppy, who was named Misty, for several weeks before being tested
positive with Covid-19.
A Memorial and Celebration of Ginny’s Life will be held at a later summer date in
Every night before falling asleep, Ginny would read a few pages that she had read
before over a number of years from a book called God Calling .
