Virginia "Ginny" Ruth Freund, 80, of Elkhorn and formerly of Lake Geneva, passed to eternal life at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhorn on Saturday, February 16, 2019. Ginny was born July 9, 1938 in Libertyville, IL to the late Everett and Augusta (Schultz) Kurtz. She married John “Jack” Freund on October 3, 1959 in Lake Geneva. She and her husband owned and operated the Handi Mart in Lake Como during the 1970's and 80's.

She is also survived by 8 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, sister Doris Mesenbrink, brothers Phillip (Betty) Kurtz and Russell (Chris) Kurtz, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

My Sympathies to your family at this time of grieving. I worked with Ginny in the Wal-Mart Jewelry Department shortly after I graduated from college and returned back to this area. She was so very sweet, friendly and also very helpful to me. Always a smile, a friendly face and so nice to everyone. I always thought so fondly of her and then later in life, she lived near my in-laws and they were friends. Miss Ms. Ginny's smiling face - Kathy Katzman-Loveless
