Vir­ginia Ber­gin, 86, of Staten Is­land

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

Vir­ginia Ber­gin, 86, of Meis­ner Av­enue, for­merly of Latham Cir­cle in Saugerties, died Thurs­day, Sept. 29, 2016, at the Eger Nurs­ing Home.

Born June 12, 1930, in Man­hat­tan, she was the daugh­ter of the late John and Ruth John­son Miller.

Ginger mar­ried Joseph Ber­gin on Nov. 21, 1948, and they lived in Green­lawn, N.Y., where they started their fam­ily. They moved to Saugerties in 1971. She was em­ployed by Saugerties Car­pet, then started her own day-care cen­ter called “The Ginger­bread House,” which she so dearly loved the chil­dren she took care of. She was also em­ployed by the Saugerties Cen­tral Schools in Mount Mar­ion as a lunch­room mon­i­tor. Ginger was an avid New York Yan­kees fan and a pas­sion­ate Buf­falo Bills fan, but noth­ing brought her more joy than spend­ing time with her fam­ily.

She was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Joseph. Sur­vivors in­clude two daugh­ters: Su­san and her hus­band Michael Ajello of Staten Is­land, Ruthann and her hus­band Vin­cent Buono of Saugerties; two sons: Joseph Ber­gin and his wife Chris of North Carolina and John Ber­gin of Brook­lyn, N.Y.; and six grand­chil­dren, Lori, Chrissy, An­thony, Joseph, Jac­que­line and Vin­cent. Seven great-grand­chil­dren and sev­eral nieces and neph­ews also sur­vive.

Her fu­neral pro­ces­sion will form at 9:15 a.m. Tues­day at Sea­mon-Wilsey Fu­neral Home Inc., corner of John and Lafayette streets, Saugerties. Thence to St. Mary of the Snow Ro­man Catholic Church, where at 10 a.m., a Mass of Chris­tian Burial will be of­fered. In­ter­ment will fol­low in St. Mary’s Ceme­tery. Friends will be re­ceived Mon­day from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m.

Ex­pres­sions of con­do­lence may be shared with the fam­ily at Sea­monWilseyFuner­alHome.com.
