Obituary: Virginia ‘Ginny’ Dennert, 94, of Hart.

Virginia Stella “Ginny” Dennert, 94, of Hart, passed away Friday, May 7, 2021. She was born October 7, 1926, in Hart, the daughter of Joseph and Frances (Kraus) Greiner.

Virginia grew up on a dairy farm in Weare Township, and worked the soda fountain at Rexall Drug Store during the war. 

On November 28, 1945, she married Cecil Dennert at St. Joseph Catholic Church. She was a great cook, enjoyed baking, and ran the asparagus fields at their farm. In later years, she worked on the local election board. 

Virginia loved playing cards, Yahtzee, and bingo with her family and siblings. She was the Yahtzee “queen.” Virginia was very dedicated to her faith, serving as a eucharistic minister, and a lifelong member of the St. Joseph Catholic Church Altar Society. She was also very dedicated to her family; she loved spending time with all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and having family gatherings. 

Virginia is survived by her children, Kathy (Chuck) Miesch of Grand Haven, Gene (Robbie) Dennert of Hart, and Joanne (Tim) Beyer of Hart; daughter-in-law, Carol Dennert of Hart; son-in-law, Ron Visscher of Whitehall; 11 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren.
