Ginny was born in Greensboro on February 17, 1939 the daughter of Bruce and Virginia Holloman. She was raised in Williamston, NC, where she graduated from high school in 1957. After graduating near the top of her class at the Rex Hospital School of Nursing in 1960, she devoted her career to the care of others.
As a registered nurse at Rex Hospital for 40 years, Ginny was respected and admired by doctors, staff and patients, serving in a number of nursing specialty areas before retiring from the Intensive Care Unit in 2000.
Ginny was an active leader of the Hampstead Crossing community, serving as a member and treasurer of the homeowners’ association.
Her hobbies and joys included reading crime novels, the latest electronic gadgets, card games, growing orchids, range shooting, and Captain Stanley’s seafood.
Devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Unwavering friend. Dedicated medical professional. Your spirit, wisdom, curious mind, and jovial laughter brought us such joy. We were inspired by your unwavering values, work ethic, self-reliance and determination, and your contentment with who you were. We looked to you for guidance, when we needed to ‘hear it straight’ or receive a ‘swift kick’ to get us moving again in the right direction. You made us feel so loved! Rest at peace in His kingdom. May we honor you by carrying on your love and legacy, both in us, and in the way we live.
Surviving Ginny are her daughter Karen Evans and husband Doug of Raleigh; son Bruce Rogers and Julie Reaves of Raleigh; grandchildren Brandon Evans, Blake Evans, and Brian Evans; and great grandchildren Haley Evans and Jacob Odom.
