Virginia June Tustin

Our mother made her journey to the "Big Sky" on Sunday January 31, 2021 at the age of 91. Ginny was a Mother, Grand Mother, Great Grand Mother, Great-Great Grandmother, and Friend. Words cannot express our combined sadness and joy. Our Mom was a woman of unmatched energy, passion, and love of people (and a "party"). We will miss her, however you will see her everywhere, as she and our father left a lot of life in the community. We are a family of 7 children, 6 spouses, 26 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild. Our mom and dad were married 51 years before his passing in 2001. The family story we often recite starts, "There was a young couple who lived on Gull Lake, they had 7 children and none by mistake…." James and Virginia created this family:

Jim and Sherry
Grand Children
Jason and Amy
Great Grand Children Cade, Max, and Axl
Jessica and Nick
Great Grand Children Lincoln and Sawyer

Sue and Bill

Kenny and Danielle
Great Grand Children Silas, Judah, Eden, Lydia

Great Grand Children Camila, Leonardo

Mom was also preceded in death by her brother Richard Bakosh, father and mother Mike and Susan Bakosh, and our father's parents James and Loretta Tustin.
