From page A2 | November 08, 2013 |

Feb. 18, 1930 — Oct. 10, 2013

Ginny was the light of her family and friends. She loved to laugh and have fun. Football was the sport for her and she was so excited when that time of year came around. ‘The Manning boys,’ as she called them, were her favorite players and she never missed a game of theirs on TV. Mom was an expert poker player and played with the guys for many, many years. They could never see her coming with that poker face. Two of her hobbies were bowling and doing the daily crossword … sometimes she was even able to complete the Sunday puzzle! She started her work career as a bookkeeper for Sears in Southern California. She then worked for the El Dorado County District Attorney’s office, Sierra Door and Park West before retiring.

Ginny was proceeded in death by her husband, Glenn Miller (no, not the musician, but the silver fox!); her sister, Marlys; and brother, Shelton. She is survived by her daughters, Glenda Miller Real of Seattle, Wash., and Stacy Miller Enzler (Kraig) of Diamond Springs, Calif.; her four grandchildren, Andrew Real (Deanna), Julianne Real Haggart (Ryan) and Kyle and David Enzler; her first great-grandchild, Joseph Real; her sister, Mary Hohn Pierce; many nieces and nephews; and her companion of many years, Michael Plank. Mom will be sorely missed by all who knew her; she was quite a gal!

A memorial service will be held at Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2 p.m. Immediately following the service there will be a celebration of life at the Moose Lodge, 4310 Eight Mile Road in Camino. In lieu of flowers Mom’s wish was that donations be made to one of her two favorite charities, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or Snowline Hospice.
