Virginia Lea Chapman (nee Johnson) passed away on July 7, 2017. She was born on November 9, 1938 in Vallejo, California. In 1956, Ginger married Mack L. Chapman in Napa, California. Mack was in the Air Force, and Mack and Ginger traveled and lived all over the world. \n\nLater, Ginger went back to school and fell in love with archaeology. She combined her love of travel and archaeology - and went places like Turkey, Morocco, and Tahiti. She also traveled with family. Ginger's interests were varied - she enjoyed geology, poetry, reading, and history. She loved the desert and often took long walks with her dogs. When she got home, she would take care of what she thought of as her animals - all of the quail, doves, and rabbits (and wild kitties). \n\nIn later years, her passion was quilting - all of her quilts were treasured gifts. She entered a number of quilt shows. And she definitely had a thing for quilt stores and buying fabric!\n\nShe is survived by her sister, Judy Johnson, her daughters Karen Magon and Brenda Robison, her 6 grandchildren, and her great-grandson. She was loved and will be greatly missed.
