Virginia “Ginny” Howe Halliburton, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, left to be with our savior peacefully on the morning of October 10, 2023, in Hendersonville, NC, at the age of 77. She was born on September 22, 1946, in Dayton, OH, to the late Dwight Burdette Howe and Mary Brooks Howe.
Ginny had a fulfilling career as a Special Needs Teacher and later found purpose as the Office Manager of her husband’s orthodontic practice. She was dedicated to helping others, especially those with special needs, and her compassionate nature touched the lives of many.
Outside of work, Ginny had a keen interest in holistic health issues and was passionate about exploring natural remedies. She loved fashion and had a knack for staying stylish throughout the years. Ginny also had a talent for utilizing essential oils for skincare, always striving for healthy and radiant skin. Her savvy personality shone through in everything she did.
Above all, Ginny was a devoted wife to her loving husband of 58 years, Dr. Donald Richard Halliburton. Together, they built a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. Ginny embraced her role as a mother with grace and skill, raising two exceptional boys, Richard Hunter Halliburton and his wife Amy of Kingsport, TN, and Dr. Cory Shea Halliburton and his wife Cecelia of Shelburne, VT.
Ginny’s greatest joy in life came from being a grandmother. She adored her grandchildren, Hannah Sloane, and her husband Chase, Ella, Aaron, Colin, and Maja Halliburton, and treasured every moment spent with them. Her love and guidance will forever be etched in their hearts.
