Obituary

Virginia (Ginny) N. Bilkert, 93, of North Canton went home to be with the Lord on November 11, 2017. Ginny was born to Alexander and Helen (Hulse) Norden on April 11, 1924, in Germantown, Pennsylvania. She earned a BA in English from Oberlin College and in 1945 married Monteith (Monty) R. Bilkert. Together they enjoyed 68 years of marriage, raising four children. A member of Faith United Methodist Church, Ginny served in many areas including Christian education, United Methodist Women, and Lydia Circle. Faith UMC nurtured her faith in Christ and provided innumerable long-lasting friendships. Working as an assistant in the Hoover High School library, she thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to engage with faculty and students. Ginny was also a member of P.E.O. Sisterhood. In retirement she and Monty enjoyed time with family, travel, and serving their church and community.
Ginny, who had the gift of hospitality, was the consummate homemaker and loved welcoming family and friends to her home. She enjoyed good conversation and she loved people, maintaining a keen interest in the lives of her family and friends. Those who knew her will remember her gracious spirit and kind heart.
