Edmonda Genevieve  Summers “Ginny”  Pitts of Moberly, passed away Thursday, March 24 2022.  She was born August 13, 1928 in rural Randolph County, to the union of Josh and Corinne (Walker) White.


 She married Richard Junior Summers,  December 15, 1946 who preceded her in death.  Also preceding her in death were her parents, son-in-law Richard Hayslip, her second husband, George Pitts, Jr., her brother, D.C. White, sisters-in-law, Margie Mallory and Mildred Hyde and a brother-in-law, Rowe Schulteiss.


Ginny worked for the Moberly Water Department, Moberly City Collector’s Office and Orscheln/Dura until her retirement. She was a lifelong member of the First Christian Church in Moberly, Missouri.  She was also a member of the Christian Women’s Fellowship (Rachael) and a member of “Hicks” & “Chicks” square dance group.


She enjoyed cooking, gardening, sewing, decorating her home and entertaining family and close friends.  Christmas and Easter were her favorite holidays! Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were so special to her and she loved having them over for the weekends and playing “dress up”.  Sweet Ginny was such a beautiful lady, inside and out and was always aware of her appearance, looking her best when she left her home. She took great pride in her home; it was always so clean, neat and organized. Ginny’s weekend vacations with family and close friends was a big part of her life.


She is survived by her children, Paula Hayslip of Moberly and Ross  Summers and his wife Regina of Huntsville; three grandchildren Rosalyn (Gary) Welschmeyer of Freeburg, MO; Matthew (Jessica) Summers of Madison, MO; and Jocelyn (Hayslip) McNelly of Lee’s Summit, MO,  five great grandchildren Lydia, Frank & Louis Welschmeyer and Chloe & Grace Summers; one sister Dixie Jo Schultheiss of Kansas City; one sister-in-law Betty Runyan of Sturgeon;  nieces and nephews Connie Blu and Michael White of Sturgeon, David White of Clifton Hill, Cathy Dennis of the State of Virginia, Janet Katosh of Kansas City and Mona Tate of the state of Arkansas, other relatives and friends.


Memorials may be made in Ginny’s honor to the First Christian Church in Moberly, Missouri or Altrusa International of Moberly-Christmas in the Park.


Words of comfort and support were shared with the family at a visitation, held  in the Cater Funeral Home Chapel, followed by funeral services honoring and celebrating “Ginnys” life.    Committal prayer and burial took place at Memorial Park Cemetery.
