Virginia Lois Valenti passed away March 6 at the age of 92.
“Ginny”, as she was affectionately known, was born June 13, 1926 in Stamford, to the late Charles and Mary Wood Parkin. She was a lifelong Stamford resident, employed by Sears & Roebuck, where she had a successful career for 40 years. After retiring, she continued to work later in life as a sampler at Palmers Market in Darien.
Ginny had a love of life and always lived it to the fullest. She loved traveling, doing puzzles, watching “Days of Our Lives” and especially loved the company of her little dog “Teddy.”
She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and always enjoyed being with her family. Anyone who was blessed to have known her, would agree she had a heart of gold, an endless supply of inspiration and was kind to every person that came in her path.
