In 1949, she married Chester R. Miller, in Portland, where she lived and raised her three children.

She loved to crochet, crocheting many treasured sweaters and afghans for family and friends, dancing with her husband, Chet at the local Eagles Club, family get togethers at the Hodgkin family camp on Pequawket Lake, road trips and reading audible suspense novels. Ginny loved Lays Classic potato chips (family size, of course) and Kristene's pumpkin pie, but most of all, Ginny loved to talk, to just about anyone who would listen.Ginny was predeceased by her parents, Everett and Eva Hodgkin; brother, Everett Hodgkin and his wife, Hazel; her husband, Chester R.
