Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Hanover, N.H. — Virginia Carol Bard, of Hanover, age 85. Born in Godalming, England to Captain Grenadier Guard, Geoffrey Howard Bull and Genevieve Marie Lindsay-Watson, died Thursday, July 6, 2018, at Wheelock Terrace in Hanover.

She was the beloved wife of the late Peter Alexander Bard, beloved mother of Jessica Garcia (Roberto), Lindsay Parsons (Donald), and Alex Bard (Alison). Dearest Grandmother of Anthony, Nicholas, Ian, Jordan, Ethan, Alexandra and Dylan. Great Grandmother of Isabella, Layne and Mason. Dear sister of Roland Bull and step-sister of Peter Ranney. 

After her father’s death at the battle of Dunkirk, Gina came to the U.S. at age 10 and was adopted by the American Illustrator Robert Fawcett and his wife Nancy Ranney. Gina attended boarding school in Putney, Vt., and went on to live and work in NYC.

Known to many as “Gina B” she was a devoted friend and neighbor. Gina was compassionate, caring, had a love of reading, tennis, scrabble and the New York Times crossword section. She was most comfortable around her friends and helping others. Gina will always be remembered for her sense of humor, and sharp wit. One was always greeted by her warm contagious smile. An active member of the St. Stephen’s Episcopal church choir and community in Armonk, N.Y., Gina will be forever missed for her gentle spirit and her giving nature.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to St. Stephen’s acolyte scholarship, a scholarship started by Gina herself. 

A service will be held on Saturday, July 21, at 3 p.m. in Armonk, N.Y. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.

Ricker Funeral Homes & Crematory of Lebanon and Enfield assisted the family with arrangements.
