To Ginger’s family and friends prayers are sent. I knew Ginger as a teacher and a Curriculum instructor. She was hard working and dedicated to her profession. Ginger always had a smile and gave others joy.
She made a difference in the lives of students and teachers and has a great legacy of love in her path.
Blessings,
Carol

Beautiful lady that we enjoyed so much when we were together. Always concerned with others over herself. Double dating was a real experience with Jack and Richard for sure. Didn't happen real often because of the logistics, but Richard and i always looked forward to those times. Jay, Mike, and Stacy, you were all her prizes! She definitely hit the jackpot with y'all and she was so proud of you.
We wont be at the service as Richard had knee replacement surgery this week, but we send many prayers for the family as you remember the good times and happy memories.
Love, Laurianna Sue and Richard

Ginger was a joy to know. I had the privilege of working with her in Plano ISD. Her training sessions were full of practical advice for teachers and she was funny. Never a dull moment with Ginger around. Cherish those times. Prayers for her family

As a friend, Ginger was the best. She cared for and kept up with her friends. Several , like myself, considered her our best friend. The two of us met at Baylor University, dated two A&M young men who later became our husbands. We became parents, gathered for special occasions as families, & the two of us both worked in the Plano Independent School District.

Ginger was asked by the administration to take the leadership role in the development & implementation of what became one of the most successful curriculum programs in the State. She trained hundreds of teachers as well as principals, spending hours upon hours to ensure that teachers had full support in the curriculum implantation. Over time, she became respected by both teachers as well as administrators. They held Ginger in the highest regard.

To put it succinctly, she was one of a kind. Patient, humble, intelligent, organized, a born teacher, a leader. She will be missed by those who had the joy of knowing her, enjoying her company, and being her friend. One of a kind....one of a kind.

I know Mrs Ginger from when I was a little kid. They ran a strict house but it was filled with love. And I remember she collected owls for good luck. And the packages she would get from Germany. They were a joy to be around. You will be missed.
