Virginia “Ginnie” Elizabeth Peak was born in Oklahoma in 1946, married Thomas Peak in California August 13,1966, and passed away peacefully surrounded by family October 2, 2022 in Boise, Idaho. In between she was mother to four children: Thomas Edward Jr, David Andrew, Elizabeth Marie and Dianna Lynn. Ginnie traveled many places, blessing all who knew her with her words and laughter.
She is survived by daughters Elizabeth Nuñez of Hayden, ID and Dianna (Clint) Patterson of Dillon MT; her grandchildren Shannon (Trevor) Sprinkle of Boise, ID, Jesse Maddox of Williston, ND Mellina of Hayden, ID and her great granddaughter Paisley of ND; sisters Gerry, Sharon, Bettie and brother Robert.
She was preceded in death by her son David, parents Helen and Clay Wallace, as well as 9 siblings.
Ginnie was a gentle soul whose light touched everyone around her. Though she may have been quick to cry, her tears were as often brought on by joy as by sorrow. She valued gentleness and kindness and was always generous when she had any capacity to help.
Born in OK, and a long time NV resident, Ginnie spent her final years in Idaho, making a home with her oldest grandchild and their husband.
SPS may have stolen her voice and independence, but throughout her turbulent journey she found comfort and light in the time she shared with her loved ones. Words weren’t necessary to convey the love she felt for those she left behind.
In her final days, Gramma Ginnie was surrounded by family. She went to rest without fear in her heart; she knew there would no longer be but one set of footprints in the sand.

A Sister Inlaw, and Friend, I will miss her.
He taught me how to crochet my first doll.
She crocheted beautifully. She did not believe in mistakes! She’d say Yolanda, Rip it out! And she laughed when she said it.
I will miss your Text.’s. And stories.
And to Shannon, thank you for being a
Caregiver to her. And to Liz, for all the trips
You made up to Boise to help her.
Love you guys! ❤️❤️❤️
