Remembrances are pouring in for an upstate woman who was killed when a car struck her on Main Street last weekend.

Ginny Byrne had lived in Greenville for more than forty years, and especially loved attending shows at the Peace Center and Little Theatre, delivering meals for Meals on Wheels, and attending mass at St Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Simpsonville.

Born in 1939, the 79 year old was devoted to her husband Len and her son Christopher.

But as family says, there was far more to her than a simple obituary could entail.

She won first prize in the National for her beautiful hooked wool rugs.

She once got a hole in one during her lucrative, though unprofessional, golf career.

And she was always willing to give out a hug and some kind words to anyone who needed some love in their life.

A minster of the Holy Eucharist at her church, she was known for her encyclopedic knowledge of the Bible and for being an active leader at her Women’s Bible Study Group.

More than that, Ginny was always a friend to all she met. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you consider sending a donation to the Byrne Family Foundation, Ginny’s favorite charity.
