Albany-Virginia (Ginny) L. Stoddard- On Sunday morning, November 24, 2019, Ginny went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Ginny was born May 8, 1940 in Albany, New York. She was the daughter of the late John Stephen Spiak and Rosalie Sweet Spiak.
She is survived by her brother Stephen (Winnie) Stoddard; and her three children, Diana McFarland, David (Mindy) Lumpkin, and D.J. (Michael) Szymanski; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; a niece; many dear friends and her Church Family.
Ginny worked in several parts of the country, including Florida, Massachusetts, and California, but returned to Albany in later years. She enjoyed singing in the church choir.
