Ginny Murphy

(1933 - 2015)

You would have known her as Ginny, Aunt Ginny or Gin Gin. Ginny was raised on a farm; one of 16 children. As a child she saw how hard workers earned high praise and Ginny was never a slouch. To the end Ginny believed in being punctual; she died shoveling out her driveway to head to work at Damask Candies. Of course, come holidays you’d find wearing her bonnet and filling Damask to the roof with candies. She had a green thumb: her Christmas cactus bloomed every Thanksgiving. Cleaning the inside of her home wasn’t enough for Ginny; last year she scrubbed down all her exterior walls. Perhaps the only time she sat still is when Lucy Capri would come over and sit on their outside porch and enjoy the evening air.

A young Ginny Hunt was on a date when another gentleman asked her to dance. That dance was with the late Arthur. They married and were blessed with two sons, David (Diane) of Carney’s Point and Michael of Swedesboro. She is survived by three brothers, Samuel (Anita), Walter (Barbara) and Kenneth (Joyce) Hunt; and sisters, Dorothy (Phil) Coppolino and Edith (Louis) Wilson; and numerous nieces and nephews.

    Ginny was a great friend to us for 15 plus years. We quickly learned after moving to Swedesboro that Ginny had her finger on the pulse of the town. Joe always said ‘if you want the skinny, ask Ginny’. I am half her age but found myself in a group of women who were fun to be around, had wisdom worth learning from, and who are genuinely wonderful people. We drank wine, went out to eat, talked, drank Ginny’s iced tea on the porch, and made pumpkin pie from scratch every year. We will miss her greatly!
