After a grace filled and courageous confrontation with brain cancer, Ginna Holmes Moore of Hudson, New York, succumbed on June 29, 2021, at her home on a hill overlooking the city. As damnable as was the shadow of the COVID pandemic pervading most of her last months, she found a measure of comfort and peace looking out over the city, the Hudson River, and the Catskill Mountains. . . .
If it is possible, and it is, to be selfless and bristling with opinions, with a smile that lit up many, many lives, that was Ginna. She honed a sense of social justice on issues of women’s rights and racial equity. Both came naturally to her. In her quarter century in the Hudson Valley, Rhinebeck and Hudson, she threw her energies into work with Columbia County Habitat for Humanity, and as an ardent congregant and active volunteer at St. John the Evangelist in Barrytown and Christ Church Episcopal in Hudson.

Ginna's community service in Hudson includes a term on the Planning Board, to which she was appointed in 2017 by Mayor Tiffany Martin, and stepping up to run for First Ward alderman in 2019.
