Virginia Anne Frezzo

Virginia "Ginny" Anne Frezzo, age 78, of West Grove, Pennsylvania, passed away on June 18, 2024, at Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA. She was the wife of James Frezzo Sr., to whom she was happily married for 53 years. Born also in West Chester, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Opdenaker and the late Virginia Bailey. 

Ginny will always be remembered for her warm smile, laughter, and generous spirit. She was known for her positive attitude and perseverance, serving four years with the Benedictine Sisters of Ridgely, MD. There, she taught at The Benedictine School for Exceptional Children and attended the Benedictine College. Her love for children grew while teaching two years at St. John's the Beloved in Milltown, DE. She studied one year at the University of Delaware, majoring in music, before ultimately graduating from West Chester University cum laude in 1992, with a bachelor's degree in psychology. 

Ginny loved music and singing. She was a beloved member of her community choir. Everywhere she went, a tune, hum, or whistle would follow; the world will be a little less melodic without her. 

Above all, Ginny loved her children and grandchildren. She maintained a beautiful home, prioritized education, and spent countless hours cheering on her children and their friends from the side of many sports fields and ice rinks. Her loving presence as a parent, grandparent, and caregiver will be greatly missed, but modeled for generations to come. 

In addition to her husband, Ginny is survived by her children, James Louis Frezzo Jr. (Lorraine), Anthony Emidio Frezzo, Theresa Marie Frezzo (Frédéric), and Cynthia Ann Frezzo (Alistair); her granddaughters, Emmeline Concetta Merlet and Ardella Louise Johnston; one brother, Joseph Opdenaker Jr; one half-brother, Harry Bailey; three in-laws; many dear nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. Ginny was predeceased by her Aunt Sophie Stanwell, her half-sister, Debra Starett and her half-brother, Bill Bailey.
