The class of WFSH-56 will miss the friendly smile of Ginger.
Ginger was one of the first to greet me at the 50th WFSH-56 Reunion. She made everyone fill welcomed at the reunion. I also remember talking with her on the telephone quite a few times following the class reunion. I had picked up the WFSH-56 classmates list and have kept this listing up to date since I took over from Robert Neal, and Ginger provided me with updates over the past few years.
She was courageous with dealing with cancer and may she rest in peace with the Lord forever. Condolences to the family with the loss of a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.
Remembering Ginger, Larry Everett – Class of WFSH-56
