Virginia “Ginny” Ann Harper

Date of Death

July 21, 2018

Virginia “Ginny” Ann Harper passed away peacefully Saturday, July 21, 2018 at the age of 66, after a brief but serious bout with cancer, of which she said, “It just sucks”.

Despite it being cut short, Ginny lived a life that she wanted – not because she was always dealt a good hand – but because she truly believed in doing what we can to be happy, and persevering when life knocks the wind out of us.

Whether immersed in a novel, enjoying spirited conversation, or dancing in the moonlight, Ginny made a point to find joy in all of life, and she spread that joy to those around her.

She was inspirational in her caring and sympathetic nature, and will always be remembered for her supportiveness and her dedication to friends and family.

Ginny had a beautiful mind and an even more beautiful spirit, and that spirit will live on through her sons, Stephen and Brian, her siblings, Bill, Nancy, and Leta, and her parents, Harold and Dortha, as well as her many friends and extended family.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 11th at 1:00pm at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara’s Sanctuary, at 1535 Santa Barbara Street. All are welcome.

For those who wish, donations may be made in her name to Sarah House of Santa Barbara.
