Mario and Ginny Fucinari
Our family vacationed in Buckeye through a rental home, just over two years ago. Buckeye must have made an impression on our daughter, Nicole, because about one year later, she and her husband announced they were moving to Buckeye. We were just going to look around at houses, but before we knew it, we had found the perfect home at Sun City Festival. Mario, Ginny, and their dog, Piper, are living here part-time, until we can retire in a couple of years. In the meantime, we are getting to know the area and its people.
Mario is a chiropractic physician. He has been in practice for 30 years in Decatur, Illinois. In addition, he teaches post-graduate education throughout the United States and has authored several professional books and training manuals. Although Mario travels extensively between the office and his teaching events, he always likes to relax in Sun City Festival. Mario is a Cubs fan and a St. Louis Cardinals fan, depending on who is winning. When in Buckeye, Mario enjoys the Camera Club and playing Euchre in the Player’s Club.
Ginny is a Certified Professional Coder (CPC) and a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). She and Mario originally met in Warren, Michigan where they both worked. He was an x-ray tech and Ginny worked in the emergency room. Ginny went to school in Alexandria, Virginia, before moving to Ft. Pierce, Florida and attending nursing school. Upon moving to Michigan to live with her sister and find work, she met Mario. They were married in 1982. Ginny works in the insurance department of Mario’s office. Ginny likes to play pickleball, Mahjong, and Euchre in Buckeye.
Recently, our youngest daughter, Katie, announced her plans to eventually move to Arizona, where she will not have to endure another Illinois winter. I guess the writing is on the wall! We love to travel, go hiking and explore places in Arizona. We can’t wait to move here full-time and meet more of you!
