Obituary For Virginia Faye Grimes
Mrs. Virginia (Ginny) Faye Grimes (Demler) died peacefully following several years of failing health at Crown Care Center in Harrisonville MO on January 24, 2021 at the age of 75.
Ginny is survived by her husband Steve, one daughter Robin (Grimes) and son-in-law Tom Jackson of Raymore MO, two grandchildren, one sister Maril-Lee (Demler) Wolford of Gardner KS, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her parents, Henry and Ethel Demler of Burlington KS, and three sisters, Ruth Wollen of Topeka KS, Violet Hollenbaugh of Newville PA and Louise Hess of Burlington KS.
Ginny was born on October 6, 1946 in rural Burlington KS to Henry and Ethel (Strawder) Demler. She graduated from Burlington High School in 1963. Ginny also attended Manhattan Christian College for two years. She married Stephen (Steve) T Grimes on October 7, 1967. Steve graduated from OSUIT in Okmulgee OK in 1968 after which they moved to Independence KS. In Independence, Ginny volunteered at the Midwest Pregnancy Care Center. After a number of years as a volunteer, she accepted the position as Director of the center. She worked at MPCC for a total of 25 years until her retirement at the end of 2010.

After retirement, she and Steve moved to Harrisonville MO to be closer to their daughter and her family.
