Ginny was born in Boston’s West End and she was educated in Boston Public Schools. Later Ginny married Joseph P. Maniscalco and the couple settled in Medford before moving to Revere in 1961. Ginny was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister & friend and then great grandmother. Ginny had the unique pleasure of having six daughters. She had an unwavering faith and was an active member of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Revere. She and several of the ladies from Immaculate Parish formed their own little “Coffee Club”, where they would welcome anyone to join them. Her heart was dedicated to her family and it was obvious; she loved gatherings and parties and spending time with them. She moved to Woburn, after losing her husband Joe on December 7, 2000. She still maintained lifelong friendships that she made years ago.

She is the beloved wife of the late Joseph P. Maniscalco. Cherished mother of Diane M. Cottle & husband Frank of Woburn, Ann M. D’Ambrosio & husband Pasquale of Wakefield, Maria E. Ruiz & husband George of Woburn, Virginia M. “Ginny” Cantone & husband Philip of Revere, Carol Cantone & husband David of Rowley & Paula K. Coates of Billerica.
