Obituary

Virginia "Gini Faye Siljestrom-Fasulo was born in Chicago on August 28, 1920. She passed away peacefully on November 25, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 98.

Being an only child, her cousin Dot filled the sister roll. They were bridesmaids in each other's weddings. They went on many trips together and just generally treasured their relationship.

Gini met her husband, Don on a blind date. They were married in 1943. They had three children, Steven, Christine and Wendy. She learned early on how to make ends meet. The depression times were tough. Being a gifted seamstress, she figured out how to earn money by selling the draperies that she made. Don died an untimely death at age 64 in 1983. Suddenly, she was a widow.

Five years after she lost Don, she found happiness with Lou Fasulo. His daughter Midge, made it a blended family of four. She and Lou were married for 27 years. During those years, she had the time to pursue the things she always wanted to do. She did some truly beautiful water color paintings. She studied genealogy, knitted and sewed. She played a lot of bridge with Lou. Besides all that, she and Lou were able to travel the world. They went on 127 trips during their marriage. Life was good.

The children gave her six grandchildren, Katie, Michael, Jennifer, Jon, Dan and Kim.

She led a long and full life.
