RICHLAND, WA: Virginia (Ginny) Taintor passed away peacefully at home in Richland, Wash., on March 25, 2016. Ginny was born on March 5, 1931, in Manchester, N.H., to Robert and Jessie Beckley. She lived in Londonderry, N.H., for most of her life, moving in 2014 to live with her daughter and son-in-law.
Ginny attended Londonderry schools and graduated from Pinkerton Academy in Derry, N.H., Class of 1948, and Westbrook Junior College in Portland, Maine, Class of 1950. She won the heart of Donald Taintor, also from Londonderry, and they were married October 17, 1954. They had one daughter. Ginny worked for 30 years as a bookkeeper for the Public Service Co. of New Hampshire, while also caring for her family and keeping a warm and welcoming home. Ginny loved following local news, reading, keeping in touch with family and her circle of phone friends, and having visitors drop by for a few minutes or for an extended stay. She will be lovingly remembered for her bright smile, caring, helpful and loyal spirit, and steady Christian faith during an extended illness.
Ginny was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Donald; and her brother, James Beckley. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Rick Wittman of Richland; granddaughters, Aletheia and Zoe Wittman of Seattle; sister-in-law, Marion Guilbert of Londonderry; and many nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will take place at a later date at Pleasantview Cemetery in Londonderry, N.H.
