She was born on October 6, 1940 in The Netherlands to her parents, the late Albert and Elsiena de Jonge Niemeyer who immigrated with their five children to Wausau, Wisconsin in 1957.

Ginie was raised in The Village of Emmer-erfscheidenveen, Drenthe, The Netherlands.  She attended a private school in Ridderkerk, The Netherlands where she studied housekeeping, sewing, drama, and received an associate diploma.  After immigration and learning English, she received her high school diploma from Wausau High School in 1959.  Upon completion of high school, she attended an LPN program in Stevens Point.  After several part-time jobs she started as a Junior Nurse’s Aide in pediatrics at Wausau Memorial Hospital South on Grand Avenue.  She was promoted to Senior Nurse’s Aide in 1969 and worked as an SNA Unit Clerk at the now Aspirus Wausau Hospital until she retired in 2002.

Ginie was well known for her powerful and thoughtful confirmation of her faith in her Savior The Lord Jesus Christ and her wonderful sense of humor.  She spent the last five years at The Benedictine Living Community Center in Wausau sharing her faith with friends, nurses, and staff.  She loved playing games and winning at Bingo

Survivors include her Niemeyer brothers and their wives, John (Jan) and Marilyn, Fred (Freerk) and Shirley, Harvey (Haiko) and Charlene, and Neil (Nantko) and Sharon, all of Wausau, WI; as well as cousins, and many nieces and nephews.
