Virginia E. Kulik, known fondly as Ginny, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family in Philadelphia, PA on July 22, 2023. She was born on September 2, 1937, also in Philadelphia, to her parents whose names she held dear as her maiden name was McCoy.
Ginny's life was one filled with hard work and love. She dedicated many years of her life working as a waitress in various restaurants throughout the Philadelphia area. Her warm smile and genuine care for others made her a beloved member of the service industry. However, it was when her grandchildren started to arrive that Ginny truly discovered her life's calling.
As a doting grandmother, Ginny wholeheartedly embraced the role of a second mother to her grandchildren. She selflessly devoted herself to their upbringing and offered unwavering support to their parents. Her home became a safe haven for laughter, love, and cherished memories.
One of Ginny's passions revolved around her creativity. She had a deep love for crafts and sewing, often spending hours meticulously creating Halloween costumes for the little ones. Every holiday, she would adorn their lives with handmade decorations that added an extra touch of joy to their celebrations. Ginny also possessed an artistic eye and had a camera perpetually in hand to capture precious moments. Although some photographs may have been accidentally taped or cut off, it never dampened her enthusiasm for photography.
Ginny’s legacy extends far beyond her immediate family, as she leaves behind a rich tapestry of cherished memories in the hearts of those who knew her best. She joins her late husband John W. Kulik in eternal rest and will be deeply missed by her children: Debra, John P. (Terri), Anna, Regina, and the late David F."Chips" (Louise). Her absence is mourned by fourteen grandchildren who held a special place in her heart. Additionally, twenty-three great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren feel the void left by her departure. The warmth and love she showered upon them will be treasured forever.
Ginny also leaves behind her beloved sister, Susan Dyke-Ozga, who is comforted by the memories they shared over the years. Their bond of sisterhood remained unbreakable, even in their final moments together.
