VIRGINIA (GINNY) LOUTTIT (published on February 28, 2011)

VIRGINIA (GINNY) LOUTTIT November 20, 1951 - February 24, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ginny on February 24, 2011 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. She passed away peacefully after a brief illness and spent the last few weeks of her life continually surrounded by her family. Left to celebrate her memory are her husband Weldon; daughters Jacqueline (Dale) Winters, Cathryn (Jordan) Mund, and Linda; sisters Jill (Jim) Gwynne, Vicki (Bill Landin) Wallace; as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins, aunts, and friends. Ginny was born November 20, 1951 at Cartwright, Manitoba, to Harry and Sylvia (Boxshall) Wallace. She attended Cartwright School and spent summers at the family cottage at Rock Lake Beach. After graduating from Grade 12 at Killarney, she attended the University of Winnipeg where she first met her husband Weldon, but when he initially asked her out she said no, convinced he wasn't her type. It wasn't until they met again when working at the Motor Vehicle Branch that the relationship developed and she realized he was actually the love of her life. Ginny moved to Gimli with her husband Weldon in 1980, where together they raised their three children. She was blessed to have found her true calling in being a wife and mother and relished every moment that she spent with her family. She always felt privileged to be a stay-at-home mum and knew that she was doing the most important job in the world; and she did it well. Even after her children grew up she still played a very active role in each one of their lives. Music was always a big part of Ginny's life. When she was young she sang with a group of friends as The Cellar Folk and she had a strong singing voice. She led music and worship in her church for many years and was active in Women's Aglow doing music for retreats in the Interlake, Winnipeg, Thompson, and Thunder Bay. Her close relationship with Jesus Christ was an important part of her life. Ginny was a great listener. She was an exhorter, an encourager, and a good friend and mentor to many women. Her friends and family will miss her big bright eyes and radiant smile, as well as going for walks, out for coffee, her laughter, and her unconditional love. Her daughters will miss their #1 fan and supporter. A memorial service will be held at Gimli Bible Camp on Wednesday, March 2, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a Christian charity of your choice. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms... Gilbart Funeral Home, Gimli in care of arrangements.
