Virginia “Ginny” Elaine (Reynolds) Shultz passed away peacefully at Hawthorn Place Adult Family Home in Tumwater, Wash., May 31, 2019. She was born in Bucoda, March 5, 1929, to George and Rosa Reynolds.
A native of the Skookumchuck Valley, Ginny lived on the family farm for 56 years, before retiring from farm life and moving to Tenino.
