Obituary for Margaret Mary Ginster Margaret Mary “Peggy” Ginster, age 96, passed away peacefully Monday July 23, 2018, in Apollo Beach, Florida, surrounded by family after a lengthy illness. She was born on January 26, 1922, to Michael and Rose Ena Boyle in Knitshill, Scotland. She was raised in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit and County Donegal, Ireland. Like so many of her time, her family endured through the Great Depression and World War II. She became a hospital trained nurse, working in Letterkenny, Ireland, London, England and Detroit, Michigan. Along her journey, she received her RN. Later in life, she earned her Bachelor of Nursing from Ferris State College at age 48 and BA in Sociology from Saginaw Valley State University at age 65. Margaret wed William “Billy Joe” Ginster in November 1952. They were married for 47 years until his death in August 2000. As a mother, Margaret was a fierce protector of her eldest son “Mickey”, who has had an intellectual disability from birth. Margaret is survived by her children, Michael “Mickey” Ginster, Cathy Ginster, Anthony “Tony” (Teri) Ginster, Thomas (Kelly) Ginster and William “Will” (Cindy) Ginster; grandchildren, Michael Ginster, Jack Ginster, Margaret Jane (Isaac) Crouse, Sharon Ginster, Theodore Ginster, Sarah Ginster, Laura Ginster, Kelley Ginster and Shayna Ginster; great grandson, Walter Crouse; several nieces and nephews including, JoEllen (Dave) Dubow, Susan Ginster, Theresa McDonald, Charlie (Tracie) Ginster, Tim Ginster, Bobby Qualman (Brenda), Jennifer (Roger) Olson, and John (Nancy) Qualman; her sister-in-law, Sue Ann Ginster, and cousin Kathleen (John) McCarron, Port Salon, Letterkenny, Ireland. Along with her husband William Joseph “Billy Joe” Ginster, she was preceded in death by her brother, Neil John Boyle, a decorated WWII veteran who bravely fought in the North African campaign and was a paratrooper at Normandy. Our family is forever grateful to her many guardian angels—friends, neighbors and care givers—in Saginaw, Michigan, Carson City, Michigan, and Apollo Beach, Florida; and including her former son-in-law Reed Phillips.
