Virginia Dare Berryman Record, known affectionately as “Ginny”, passed away Sunday, July 30, 2023 at St. Elizabeth Hospice in Edgewood, Kentucky. She was born April 29, 1929 in Log Lick, Kentucky. She was predeceased by loving husband Noel Eugene Record and parents Charles and Zella Berryman. Surviving are son Kenneth E. Record and daughter Karen (Terry) Archer.
Ginny was primarily a homemaker raising her two children and had many outside interests and accomplishments. She was a talented seamstress who had a knack for creating anything involving needles, thread and cloth. She was a master planner of the family’s annual vacations which wove great memories that her family cherishes to this day. Once her children were older, she and Gene were looking for something to do together. Gene suggested scuba diving and Ginny suggested square dancing. Much to the delight of their many square dancing friends, she won. They mastered the art as square dancers and Gene went on to become an expert caller and teacher while Ginny provided support who could dance either part. Ginny and Gene were prominent members of the local and national square dance communities. They also organized square dancing trips to various countries all around the world to promote square dancing and fellowship.
Gene and Ginny were the perfect match for one another. They celebrated 75 happily married years together on January 19, 2023.
When Gene was confronted with health challenges, Ginny gave her undying love, support and care to him. Gene would always say, “she is my rock.” To all of those who knew and loved Ginny, her sense of humor and memorable laugh will be greatly missed.
The family of Ginny would like to thank the caregivers at St. Elizabeth Hospital Ft. Thomas and Hospice Care of St. Elizabeth in Edgewood for their exemplary care and guidance during her last few weeks.
