Virginia “Ginny” David
formerly of Lake St. Louis, MO and Creve Coeur, MO
Virginia May David waved goodbye on May 4, 2023 at the age of 90. She was born on September 9, 1932 in Old Monroe, MO and raised in Moscow Mills, MO. She was the eldest daughter of John Baptist Fanning, Jr. and Anna (nee Diederich) Fanning. Ginny was married to her blind date and fellow traveler, the late Joseph W. David for 60 years. She is survived by three children, Teri (Terry) Pray of Menomonie, WI, Kevin (Sue) David of St. Louis, MO, Michele (Tom) Sonderman of Apple Valley, MN; 4 cherished grandchildren Kacie, Clifford (Anne), Tanner, and Aidan; 2 great-grandchildren Ava Lia and Theodore; 1 brother Jerry (Joyce) Fanning; 2 sisters Mary Lou Turpin and JoAnn Marr plus several nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, parents and one brother, Thomas Fanning.
Ginny loved nature, the Native American Indian culture, travel, and her Irish/German heritage. She had a caring soul and continually searched for knowledge. Two of her favorite places were the bookmobile and the swimming pool in Creve Coeur, MO. Many people will remember the wildly entertaining parties she organized. We will miss her fun-loving spirit and celebrate all her many wonderful traits. We hope and pray that she has found peace in her struggle with bipolar disease.
WHAT IS LIFE
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.
It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset - Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator
