Ginna Parker was raised in Plainfield, New Jersey and attended the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church, from which she was confirmed. After four years in college, she returned to New England where her father had been transferred for work. Both parents grew up in New England, so in many ways this was an easy transition. Ginna worked in college admissions for several years when she moved to Boston. She married George Parker in 1981. Ginna and George have three children, a son and two daughters. One daughter lives in Boston, one in Virginia and her son is in Georgia, working at a resort. Ginna and George joined St. Paul’s at the end of 1990. Ginna has been actively involved in the Flower Guild and participates in many of the events held throughout the year. She is now a member of the Guild and does all the calligraphy for the church. Ginna has also made two trips to Haiti with St. Paul’s. Ginna is passionate about gardening (vegetable and perennial beds) and cycling. She also is active in her garden club, the Dedham Exchange and the MFA. She enjoys taking botanical art classes, needlepoint and reading. Last of all, life would not be the same for Ginna without her best friend, Callie, her labrador who follows her everywhere!
