Jeanne Z. Ginder Costik, 89, of Middletown, passed away at the home of her daughter Barbara on Sunday, August 15, 2021. Born in Salunga she was the daughter of the late Martin “Bill” and Tekla (Brooks) Ginder. She was the widow of Edward P. Costik and together they started Middletown Lumber Inc. Jeanne is survived by five children Edward, John, Craig, Cynthia and Barbara; 10 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and a brother Barry Ginder. Jeanne’s door was always open to anyone who needed to talk or a glass of ice tea. Homemaking was her love in life and cooking her specialty. We all have many memories of her cooking, baking and conversations. Her unique character was unbelievable and she instilled that in all of her children and grandchildren.
