  3. Virginia was a loving, affectionate and caring person. We and many others will miss her so much. Her untimely loss is heart breaking. She was so proud of her boys, daughter-in-laws and grand children. Virginia and Eftis were very close and supportive of each other. May she rest in peace and strength to the family.

    Love from Jeff, Georgia and family.

  4. I first met Virginia when our boys became friends in kindergarten. We quickly became friends and I was always impressed by the kindness and generosity Virginia shared with everyone around her. She was always lots of fun and had a wonderul attitide to life. We hadnt seen each other for some time and had recently made a pact to catch up. She was so proud when she told me about her new grandsons. It was not to be. Her passing will be keenly felt by all and my condolences go out to Eftis, the boys and the entire family. May her beutiful soul rest in peace. You will be sadly missed Virginia.

  5. We have had so many happy times with Ginny. She holds a special place in our hearts. Birthdays and other special get togethers were always filled with much hilarity and laughter. Her care and compassion for others was enormous. The help that she gave to our late father will never be forgotten. Ginny, you came into our lives like a whirlwind, with your infectious laugh and smiling face. We have such fond memories of our times together and you will leave such a big hole in our lives. Rest In Peace now dear friend. Lots of love Jeanette and Paul 💕

  6. Rest In Peace beautiful Virginia. You made a big mark in my life, thought me to be a better person, treated me like one of your own. Love you..,

  7. I adored Ginny. She was truly one of best people I have known.

    I wasn’t raised religious but I’ve been praying for Ginny and all of you (particularly the Efties and the Paul siblings) and trying to somehow project all the love I have.

    Ginny was one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful I came into the Cairns family and was able to spend so much time with her, over the last 17 years. I will miss her hugs, her sparkle, her thoughtfulness…she took my sisters beloved cat Fritzy, when he needed a home and loved and cared for him in the way only Ginny could. He was so, so lucky.

    I’m so proud her signature is on our wedding certificate and I am so grateful to her for helping Tyrone and I over and over, clean and move into our house, clean, paint and move into our shops, clean and tidy our house during a hospital stay of mine, help in our garden… I mean that sort of kindness and generosity is so, so rare. I’ve not known anyone like this before (other than all my in-laws).

    Everything she did was kind, from the work she did, including the way she spoke about the folks she helped have a good quality of life…that was something I deeply admired and loved about Gin. To me it’s only the best sort of people who do this work.

    The devoted love that Nick, Chris and Tom have for them Mum (and what wonderful men they are) and the deep love Eftis has for Ginny, is testament to her utter sparkling, fabulousness.

    To be loved so much and so widely is rare. She is one of the best people I’ve known.

    Sending all of you my love to all her family and friends.

  8. I had the joy and privilege of sitting next to Ginny at Chris and Annika’s wedding. It was a real highlight for me to chat with her and see first hand how truly happy and proud she was to be there. We spoke a lot about how much she loved her family and her boys.

    Ever since I met her from way back in the day as a teenager, she was always very welcoming and instantly felt like a mum to everyone around her.

    RIP Ginny, and sending all my love to the Efthimiou family.

    1. Ginny, you have left a void that cannot be filled. I miss you. One day we will meet again. Say hello to Mum and Dad, Judith, Bernie and Helen. Such sadness.

  9. Virginia will be in our hearts and remembered for her warm and vibrant personality. She was thoughtful, caring and raised a loving family that display her great qualities.
    Our deepest sympathies to Eftis and family.
    Love Androula, Peter and family.

  10. An outgoing and caring person we are so saddened by Virginia’s premature passing. She was an organiser par excellence and with Eftis hosted lots of good times at Coburg that live long in the memory. As a mother to the boys she was exemplary and we can only imagine how much the family will miss her. Requiescat in pace Virginia.

  11. Sutherland Street will never be the same without you Ginny!
    I’m so grateful for the memories and for your support during my tough times, your kindness, compassion and genuine concern for my happiness and well being over the years will never be forgotten.
    You touched the lives of so many people with your kind heart, generous soul and incredible zest for life, love and happiness.
    Thank you for being you and for being part of my life.
    Condolences to the family during this difficult time.
    Gone but never forgotten. RIP.
    Love always

  12. Gin, you and Eftis were the auntie and uncle I stayed with whenever I visited the big city. There are too many memories to sift through, but if I had to recall something I never want to forget about you, it’s the way you’d sit next to me on the couch. The tv would be on, and it felt like I was sitting next to mum, safe and loved. You projected an uncomplicated aura of love and warmth, and that never faded. You will always be an example to me of compassion, joy and selflessness. I love you, and I miss you.

  13. Always a laugh Ginny, love, positivity, generosity, we could go on and on.
    She was one of those special people who came into our lives, now leaving us with deep sadness, but grateful for her having her in our lives.
    May you Rest In Peace Ginny.

  14. A good few years ago I shared my only ever bottle of Penfolds Grange Hermitage with Ginny and Eftis, it was cool winter’s day and the fire was going, I remember we all acknowledged that memorable company deserved memorable wine. I didnt know that warm wonderful time would come back to me now. Ginny your zest, vibrance, and generosity have been a gift to us all
    My deepest condolences to your whole family
