Ginny McAuley, long time resident of Smithtown, NY, passed away after a brief illness on October 11, 2023. She lived in the same house that she and her husband James bought back in 1968, one of the last of the original residents of her block until her passing.
Ginny McAuley was born in Jamica Queens, in December 1942, the third of three children, to Raynor and Rose VanKeuren Ach. She was named Frances after an aunt, but always went by Viriginia or Ginny.
Ginny grew up in Floral Park, attended Floral Park High School, worked as a bank teller, where she met her future husband, James A. McAuley. They were married on May 30, 1964, until James’ passing in 2017.
Ginny is survived by her beloved children, Sandy McAuley (Sterling, Va) and James McAuley (Stonybrook, NY), her nieces, Cindi Strand Boumnaia (Southampton, NY), Debbie Osterwald (Franklin Square, NY) and grand nephews, Andrew, Ben, Patrick and Ryan. Ginny is predeceased by her husband, James, her sister Rose and brother Billy and her parents, Raynor and Rose.
Ginny was a dedicated mother and homemaker, with a love for gardening, and golfing. She was a member of the Nissequgue Country Club where she was part of the women’s league, achieved a hole in one, and was a flight champion. Later she joined the women’s 9 holer’s league at Smithtown Landing Country Club where she enjoyed the comraderies of the women in the group.
Ginny was a lover of animals and enjoyed spending time with her grand-fur babies, cats and dogs. She enjoyed being at the beach and on the water. Later years she enjoyed spending time with her sister, daughter and nieces going to the different vineyards on Long Island.
