With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Emma Ruth Ginn, devoted wife, our loving mother, granny, sister, aunt, and dear friend to many.
Born March 12, 1935, in Ellisville, Mississippi, she was the youngest daughter of the late Eugene and Lola Connor.
A life long learner, she worked with the re-entry program at Consumnes River College where she graduated with honors. She went on to attend Sacramento City College and CSU, Sacramento.
She retired from Campbell Soup after a career spanning 25 years. She later worked for UPS in marketing and as a Customer Service Representative for Wells Fargo.
In 1953, Emma Ruth Connor, met the man who would become her husband, the late Ado Ginn, for more than 50 years. Their marriage was blessed with three sons; Dwayne, Roderick and Corey. Her husband’s military career enabled the family to travel the world and the United States to various military bases before finally calling Sacramento home.
Guided by her deep faith in God, a generous heart, and an optimistic spirit, she made life seem simple through hardships and challenges. She will forever be our role model of how to face the difficulties in life with courage, persistence, resilience and grace.
She sought to live life beautifully by uplifting those around her and genuinely being interested in their wellbeing and success. From her heart-felt prayers to her words of encouragement, she made you feel cared for and loved.
Emma Ruth Ginn joins her husband Ado Ginn and sons Roderick Ginn and Corey Ginn in eternal life. Survivors include her son, Dwayne Ginn; grandchildren Eyreka Ginn, Adam Ginn, Nicole Cole, Kayla Ginn, Ashley Ginn, DeOsha Hayes and Jayd Ginn; great-grandchildren Brandon Wright, Monet-Chanel Khanyahl, Sonny Ginn, Kamiya Davis, Alana Ginn, Kaiyel Smith, and Landon Madave Cooke; and great-great-grandchildren Ashton Wright, Kartiair Wright and Royalty Wright.
