I have only good memories of this graceful and kind woman. She loved her children with all her heart and made me feel like part of the family, thankfully, because I practically lived there! Ginger ( or rather Mrs. Arenth as we called her) gave so much to so many - for example, even though she must have been exhausted on a Friday night, she’d still load up her brown (charger?) with six or seven of us kids and take us to the skating rink and pick us up, she ALWAYS made sure we went to church on Sundays, she checked in often with the when we’d go to your grandfather’s house and she’d make him lunch and he had his “one beer”. She was sensitive in the best way, like when I couldn’t eat in front of boys, as weird as that was, she didn’t make me feel bad, she just had us put a card table in the front yard for you and me. She had a heart of gold and my whole family loved her as well. Rest in Peace, Ginger. I will always remember you as a “Lady of Faith”.

I know this is not easy for any of you! Ginger was a big part of my early years. Through all her struggles she persevered with class. She will be remembered as a wonderful example of strength and faith. I know she certainly loved all of you. God Bless. Know that she is with all our loved ones with God.
