Virginia Kaye (Garside) Davis, age 74, passed away on Friday, May 21, 2021. She was born on September 18, 1946 in Norman, Oklahoma to Klella Moriene (Gabbart) Garside and James Leonard Garside. Gini and her parents moved to Platteville, Wisconsin where she grew up, attending the UW-Platteville Laboratory School and graduating from Platteville High School in 1964. Gini married M. Charles Davis on August 27, 1966 at Platteville United Methodist Church. They moved to Evanston, Illinois, where Gini attended the University of Illinois Medical Center Campus, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1969. In 1970, her oldest daughter, Kristi Renee was born. The family then moved to several locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Daughter Kari Lisette was born in Baldwin, Wisconsin in 1972 and Keali Nicole was born in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin in 1975.

Gini worked at a number of hospitals in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa. She earned her Masters of Science in Nursing from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1981. The family moved to Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1984, where she and Chuck have lived since. She was a nursing instructor at UW-Oshkosh for two years and then worked at Mercy Hospital in Oshkosh for 15 years. Following Mercy, she was Director of Nursing at Bay Area Hospital in Marinette, Wisconsin for two years. She returned to Oshkosh in 2003 to become Director of Quality at Aurora Hospital. Gini worked at Aurora for the next eleven years, retiring on June 1, 2014. Following her retirement, she enjoyed volunteering weekly at Aurora in the emergency department. Throughout her career and life, she lived out her values of faith, honesty, truthfulness, fairness, and above all compassion.

Gini had been a member at First United Methodist Church in Oshkosh, where she taught Sunday School for more than a decade. She was a member at Algoma Blvd. United Methodist Church for the past five years. Her faith has sustained her throughout her life and especially throughout the past 16 years of numerous cancer diagnoses and treatment and the last year of Covid isolation.

Gini loved being with people, but especially being with her family. She enjoyed gathering together with her loved ones particularly on holidays and vacations. She was looking forward to time together in Florida on the beach this coming August.

She will be missed greatly by her family as well as friends.

Gini is survived by her husband, Chuck; her daughters Kristi (Doug) Baker, Kari (Adam) Meszaros, and Keali (Mike) Winchell; her grandchildren Anthony (Jenny) Winchell, Alex Baker, Andrew (Madi) Winchell, Charlie Baker, Autumn Winchell, Avery Winchell, Reese Meszaros, and Max Meszaros; and her three great grandchildren, Colt and Everett Winchell and Reagan Winchell. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, Leonard Garside Jr., and Robert Garside.

A visitation will be from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the memorial service at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at Algoma Blvd. United Methodist Church, 1174 Algoma Blvd, Oshkosh. Burial has taken place at Riverside Cemetery, Oshkosh.
