Virginia Ann Woods



Virginia “Ginnie” Ann Woods passed away at her home in Lower Lake, Calif., on Dec. 19, 2012.

Born on Sept. 19, 1946, in Oakland, Calif., Ginnie grew up in Alamo and graduated from San Ramon Valley High School.

She moved to Lake County in 1974 and fell in love with Lower Lake. Throughout the late 1970s and 1980s she raised and showed champion rabbits and goats.

Ginnie was kind hearted and it showed as her profession was caring for developmentally disabled adults for the last 34 years. A lifelong learner, she was a avid reader of history, science and politics, and had a gift for remembering read facts when in conversation. Her empathetic, spirited character and laugh will be truly missed.

Ginnie is survived by her son, Mark Jacobson (Ramona); her grandson, Jack Jacobson; and her sister, Marie Cleverdon (Barry).  

Ginnie is predeceased by her son, Payton Jacobson; her father, Francis Woods; and her mother, Florence Woods (Jordison).

A memorial service will be held on Jan. 12, 2013, at 1 p.m. at the Brick Hall in Lower Lake.

Family prefers donations be made to Advocates for Independent Living, 4795 Gaddy Lane, Kelseyville, telephone 707-279-8822, in memory of Virginia Woods.
