Virginia Dzengeleski passed away at home on September 14, 2020. She was born, one of five children, to Leonard and Anne Pappas on February 24, 1952, in Detroit.
Ginny, as she was known to friends and family, graduated from Cooley High School in Detroit in 1970.

She never lost her characteristic cheerful disposition, facing her illness with a remarkable strength that inspired her many close friends and family.
