WARWICK, N.Y. -- Family, friends and the Warwick community gather at St. Stephan Roman Catholic Church to remember the life of 18-year-old Christina Ginley.
"Her entire life, how she was a very happy young lady, very much into soccer playing and really enjoying life. All her friends talked about how happy she was," said Bob Ginley, Christina Ginley's uncle.
The high school senior died in a car accident last Thursday when the car she was riding in crashed into another car on Interstate 95 in Virginia. She was on the way to a soccer tournament in Virginia.
Family and friends remember Christina as a happy, charismatic young woman with a bright future.
"It was, really was, a wonderful life, from being brilliant high honors society and everything else and all the charity work. She really set a high example for all of us to follow," said Ginley.
A leader in the classroom and on the field, Ginley was the captain of the soccer team and one of the top goal scorers for the Wildcats. She was also a member of Quickstrike, a premier soccer team.
"It was more than just happiness. She was filled with joy. She truly was and she will be sorely missed," said Ginley.
Memorial donations can be sent to the Lt. John Ginley Memorial Scholarship fund.
The woman driving the car Ginley was riding, Judith Guerico, 52, of Carmel, has been charged with reckless driving.
