Sr. Mary Pat Volz, C.R. Niece of Virginia Drager.

I have very fond memories of "Ginny". She made the best pickles and shared her recipes with others. She also, did many crafts and would show them to me when I would come and visit. She always had time to listen to you and take interest in what was going on. She also, gave our family time when My mom was at home and we needed some on to stay with mom during the time of her cancer and dad needed to go to the farm and take care of things there. She will be missed.
