Virginia Arlene Chaffee, 75, of Eckert, Colo., passed away March 28, 2011 in her sleep, after suffering briefly from congestive heart failure and pneumonia.

“Ginny” was born in Greeley, Colo., in 1936 to Kenneth and Lois Sothman and later moved to Fort Collins, Colo., where she graduated from Fort Collins High School in 1955. She met Jack, her future husband at the “Mishawaka” restaurant in Poudre Canyon. Ginny loved playing softball, bowling, Scrabble, and cards.

Ginny spent the majority of her professional life as a bookkeeper and secretary at First National Bank, Colorado State University, Stout State University in Menomonie, Wis., and retired with Jack to Menomonie, Wis., later moving to Eckert, Colo., where they made many friends.

Affectionately known by her grandkids as “Nonnie,” Ginny and Jack held annual ‘back yard barbeque’ parties for a number of friends and family at their home in Eckert, Colo.

Ginny leaves a legacy of loving her family, serving with Emblem Club and making “Nonnie pickles,” of legendary fame, for family and friends. Her trips with Jack to Mesquite, Nev., built some of her fond memories in recent years. She collected figurines, family photos, and had fun with friends and family on email.

She is survived by her husband of over 53 years Jack; three children Carol of Delta, Colo., Doug (Sue), and Bob (Norma) all of Ft. Collins, Colo.; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren who live in Delta, Colo., Fort Collins, Colo., Ft. Leavenworth, Kan., and Lucas, Tex.
