Elizabeth Ann McGinn

January 2, 1943 ~ September 6, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old


Remembering Liz

Elizabeth Ann McGinn was born on January 2, 1943, at Miller Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her twin sister, Mary, was born nine minutes earlier. Proud parents were Cecilia Casey McGinn and John Patrick McGinn. Liz died peacefully at United Hospital (Regina) in Hastings, Minnesota on September 6, 2023. Liz was welcomed into heaven by her parents, relatives and dear friends. She is survived by her sister Monica McGinn (Jim) Campbell and their children; Amy Campbell (Dan) Muckala and John (Kelly) Campbell. Liz has two great-nieces; Katherine Campbell, Meghan Muckala, and two great-nephews; John “Jack” Muckala and James Campbell. Liz is also survived by many first and second cousins from the Casey and McGinn families of whom she was very fond and proud.

Liz’s four core values in life were:

God is first in all things

Family and friends are second

Have a strong work ethic

Respect, compassion, and empathy for everyone

Liz was a St. Paul girl through and through. She graduated from St. Luke’s Grade School (now St. Thomas More). She graduated from Our Lady of Peace High School and Rasmussen University. She also took many classes through the University of Minnesota Extension School.

Liz worked for the Internal Revenue Service for 30 years and Lutheran Social Service for 13 years. She met many friends throughout her career and life. Liz also enjoyed volunteer work. She helped wherever she was needed at Gillette Children’s Hospital, Catholic Charities, and Lutheran Social Service Senior Companion Program.

Liz will be remembered for her love of the Irish and the color Kelly green. She had a wonderful Irish wit and laugh. Her favorite old Irish saying was: “May you be in heaven a half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead!!!”

Liz had an exceptional memory especially for telephone numbers, and she read the Minneapolis Star and St. Paul Press from cover to cover each day.

Liz and her family would like to thank relatives, friends, doctors, nurses, caregivers and Regina Senior Living of Hastings for all their support, kindness, and help throughout the years.

Elizabeth, we will miss you. Go in peace and join your Mom, Dad, and Mary, relatives and friends for an Irish celebration in heaven. May God be with you!
