Ironic. I was just thinking about NBS recently. Then I received a message from Daisy that Ginger had passed. I'm so saddened.

My deepest and heartfelt condolences to Ginger's family and all of us who had the pleasure of knowing and working with her. I knew her for eight years while working at Newborn Screening. Ginger was a kind and gentle person with a loving heart. She was always considerate of others and she truly loved helping all of Texas newborns get the assistance they needed. I'll miss Ginger very much and I'll always remember her fondly.

My deepest condolences to Ginger's family. Ginger was not only a great friend, she was like a sister to me. From the day I started at Newborn Screening, she took me under her wings and we instantly became friends. We shared so many wonderful memories together, both at work and outside of work. We laughed and cried and gossiped and confided with each other. She was kind-hearted, caring and generous...she was a gentle soul. She loved her family. Her cats brought her joy. She frequently shared photos of them, glued on tv watching the Animal Planet. I will miss our chats, the back and forth text messages, surprise gifts in the mail, eating out, visiting and just simply hanging out.
Rest now my dear friend. Thank you for all the beautiful memories. They will stay in my heart forever.

My condolences to the Scott Family. Ginger Scott was the most caring, generous and loving person I had the honor of working with for over 15 years. Countless families with newborns all over Texas were touched by Ginger's love and genuine desire to ensure all newborns that came to her received the care and attention they needed. Ginger's relationships with specialists, nurses and medical staff throughout Texas and her co-workers were truly amazing. The Newborn Screening Family at the Department of State Health Services and her co-workers at the Texas Workers Comp Commission where I first met Ginger will always have a place in our hearts for her. I will truly miss sharing kitty stories with Ginger - we had so many. Ginger was truly an Angel, may she rest in peace.

My heart and prayers go out to Ginger’s family and friends. I worked with Ginger for over 14 years in Newborn Screening as a nurse and Team Lead. Ginger truly cared about the newborn babies of Texas, and making sure their care was the number 1 priority. Her support to the doctors and specialists was astounding. She will always be remembered for her dedication to saving the lives of newborn babies. Rest In Peace.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Ginger taught me much as we worked together for the newborn screen babies. She was always so kind and helpful. She went out of her way to be sure things were done right. The Texas babies were in good hands with her. She is already deeply missed. Rest in peace Ginger.

My deepest condolences to Ginger's family.
Ginger was an amazing person. She was a truly caring and loving person and the world would be a better place if there were more people like her walking this Earth. She was so knowledgeable and had an incredible memory - especially when it came to the Texas babies she and her team helped. It was pleasure to work along side of her and I will truly miss her and I will miss our prep calls and meetings before our annual NBS meetings - I am still astonished and amazed that she could walk into a meeting, year after year, and know very specific information about the every baby she and her team followed!
Rest in peace my friend,
Patty Hunt
