They were together for 37 years; their children and friends that new Ginny and Doug said they were very much in love. Together they started a support group in Birmingham, Maine that continues today in their memory.
Ginny was a loving sister, mother and daughter that loved to go skiing when she was younger, was a wonderful swimmer and in the final years of her life volunteered at a soup kitchen. Ginny worked for the State of Connecticut and Doug worked for the Town of Colchester, Conn. They lived in Hebron, Conn. They retired to the state of Maine in 2004. Doug has five children from a previous marriage: Alvin Wagner of Moosup, Conn., Bernice Williams of Pensacola Fla., Patricia Bradshaw of Corpus Christy, Texas, Barbara Wagner of Storrs Conn., and Douglas Wagner Jr. of Colchester Conn. In addition she is survived by nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Doug's children describe her as a very loving wife and mother for the 37 years of their marriage. Ginny and Doug were always there for the children with advice and gave them a foundation of family.
Arrangements to honor Ginny will be made in Connecticut at a later date. Condolences and tributes may be shared on her memorial wall at www.wilesrc.com. Cremation care has been provided by the Wiles Remembrance Center, 137 Farmington Falls Rd., Farmington.
