  1. It is always sad to read of the passing of a good friend. “Jinkie” was just like a relative in my late husbands family. Her creativity in her home, garden and work always were obvious. Her personality really endeared her to others. Her care for her extended family and friends was a very much admired trait.
    Virginia was a pillar of her church and someone upon whom her friends and relatives could depend.
    There is a place reserved for Jinkie in many Fultonian’s hearts.
    Sandy, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  2. Sandy,
    I too was saddened to learn of your mom’s passing. With her never ending energy, she inspired everyone in her presence t0 “keep on going until the job was done”, be it at Sieron’s groceries of St. Mike’s BINGO. Fulton may have lost their “Energizer Rabbit” but we will never forget the many great memories we had!

  3. I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs Colocino through her time at Granby and when I cared for her brother Stanley “Toots” before his passing…what a wonderful woman she was!…my children all loved her dearly…

  4. What a wonderful lady she was. The adults and children just loved her at Granby school where i met her. She was a sweet lady. She will be missed by all! So loving and caring!
