Virginia “Ginny” Lee (Moore) Ott, 85, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, of Pier Willow, passed away peacefully surrounded by family after a courageous struggle with pancreatic cancer Nov. 10, 2012. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Elizabeth and William Moore; one brother, William “Pete” Moore; and five sisters, Rosemarie (Vernon) Plinske, Florence “Bebe” (Larry) Nagel, Shirley Coerper, Patricia (Robert) Hathaway, and Colleen Hall. 

Virginia is survived by her husband of 64 years, Robert A. Ott; four children, Andrew (Jacquelyn), Steven (Connie), Jane Marie (Michael) Rief, and Brian (Suzanne); 13 grandchildren, Heather (Craig) Morrissey, Dan, Jeff (Jennifer), Jason, Joey, Robert, Jill (Matt) Priebe, Jennifer Rief, Jonathan Rief, Joseph Rief, Julia Rief, Keith (Vanessa), and Gina; 11 great-grandchildren, Brennan, Jazmin, Maya, Cohen, Alton, Riley, Josie, Ashley, Ava, Evelyn, and Logan; one sister-in-law, Carolyn Moore; one brother-in-law, Robert Hall; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. 

Ginny graduated from Waukesha High School and lived her life with Robert in various places with his job in retail including West Bend, Clarinda, Iowa, Minneapolis, Minn., Bettendorf, Iowa, Wausau, Des Moines, Iowa, Escanaba, Mich., Eau Claire, and Chicago, Ill. Ginny worked at Sears, JC Penny, and Montgomery Wards. She became an amazing expert at transferring our family while her husband moved on to the next store location. She was very crafty with tailor skills making clothes, refinishing couches, and knitting slippers for all her children and grandchildren. Upon retirement she and Robert settled at Pier Lake for the last 18 years sometimes wintering in Florida with their motor home. 

Mass of Christian Burial was held  Wednesday, Nov. 14, with visitation  prior to Mass at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, 5209 N. Willow Road, Tripoli. 

Interment was in St. Francis Church Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials appreciated to St. Frances Parrish, care of St. Mary’s Church, 320 E. Washington Ave.  Tomahawk, WI 54487.

Roberts Funeral & Cremation Chapel, Inver Grove Heights, Minn., handled the arrangements.
