TAUNTON- Virginia “Ginny” Sanson, age 89, of Taunton, passed away in the morning hours of Thursday, May 4, 2023, at Morton Hospital in Taunton.
Born in Taunton, Ginny was the daughter of the late August Sanson and Mary (Sousa) Alves. She was raised in Taunton and attended Taunton Public Schools.
A hard-working woman, Ginny worked at various jobs throughout her lifetime. Her most recent place of employment was working as a Switchboard Operator for Taunton State Hospital.
In her spare time, Ginny was an avid sports fan, rooting for many of the local New England sports teams, especially the New England Patriots, with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski being her favorite players.
