Ginger was very well loved by everyone that knew her. She was adored by her husband and children. Ginger was a single mother and raised two kids while at times she worked three jobs. She put herself through college to earn a degree and started working for the Cumberland County Health Department.
Ginger and Ronnie were married July 14, 2001, they had a very loving and close marriage. Ginger loved dogs. She was only unkind to door-to-door salesmen, she would slam the door in their faces.
