"Mama Ginger, I will miss you dearly. You have left a huge mark in all of our lives with your cheerful & loving personality. Even when your illness takes over, you still didn't lose faith and continued praising God to the end. You're pain free now and have earned your wings with all the lives you have touched. May God bring your family strength during this time of grief."
"Ginger, you were more of a friend to me than you know - supportive, upbeat, caring, understanding. Thank you.
Whisper in God's ear about your two little boys, and your family. They are all going to need more of His attention without you."
"I’m truly blessed to have known the sweetest person in the whole universe, who is now Gods sweetest angel in heaven.
I will truly miss you. ♥"
"Our Dearest Ginger, we are going to miss you but you will be in our memories & in our hearts. Ginger, you are so lucky because you are with our dear Lord in heaven. You were such a good person, employee & friend. Even before you were born, God had a plan for you & seeing, reading & hearing all you did, I know you are there with HIM! Until we meet again. Your sister in Christ, ME."
"I have never met anyone as kind and compassionate as you, Ginger. I'll
miss you, dear friend."

"Ginger, you will be missed. My sympathy to her family and all who loved her.
Farewell, my sister, fare thee well.
The elements be kind to thee, and make
Thy spirits all of comfort: fare thee well.
"Ginger you were my mentor when I was in Member Services, you answered all my questions with kindness and enthusiasm. I was lucky enough to work with someone with not only vast expertise, but who was able to share it without ego but with genuine caring. As a person I know you were generous, caring, and community oriented. My deepest condolences to your work/home/animal family!"
"The Blonde and her Harley..who can forget your smile,laugh and her enormous LOVE for all. She was a courageous warrior against cancer, she fought with every fiber of her being, never allowing doubts to deter her. Your battle is over now ..we are blessed to have an incredible angel watching over us ..you are just beyond the next sunrise my friend"
"Hi Ginger! I will so miss laughing with you when we said that to each other! Your sense of humor (thank you for the Ginger Song) and amazing strength is something I will always remember and take away in life to be a better person. May you rest in God's arms knowing how much we all loved and appreciated your life and work while you were with us for too short of a time...RIP, Ginger #2"
"We have worked together for many many years now. You have always been that positive person in light of everything.
I will be doing my Team in Training walk for you this year-cancer is cancer and and it needs it's bum kicked!
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
"My condolence's go out to Ginger's family. I have experienced some really nice discussions with Ginger and I perceived that her family at home and the Alliance family were very dear to her. I worked with Ginger on a regular basis during the first year at the Alliance and she always projected a positive attitude and bent over backwards to help me. You will be missed by me."
"Ginger, although I've known you for a short time while I worked at the Alliance, there was never a time that when I spoke to you or saw you that you were anything but cheery, happy and full of life! I will miss you and will remember the simple lessons put forth by you unknowingly by just living life and being kind to the people around you."
"Dear Ginger, You were an Angel on Earth and I know you are now an Angel in heaven. Thank you for all the kindness, generosity of spirit and humour you brought to this world. You will be missed so much!. May God's love, protection and blessings surround your family at this sad time."
"Dear Ginger, You were an Angel on earth and I'm sure you are now an Angel in Heaven.Thank you for all the kindness, generosity of spirit and humour you brought to this world.You have left us all too soon. Your beautiful bright energy will be missed so much! May God's love, protection and blessings be with your family at this sad time."
"Oh Ginger, you will be sorely missed. You are a true example of a beautiful soul! Everything you did was for someone or for something and you never thought twice about it. You always put everybody else first. I will forever admire you! Love you beautiful Angel. May you be at peace always and forever!"
"To know her is to love her!
This woman knew the Alliance mission and practiced it daily. How fortunate we all are to have known and worked with Ginger! An amazing mother, grandmother, foster mother and friend."
"You have taken off and left us behind, but your love will always remin in our heart. We will never forget your humor which described you. You taught me so much and one thing I will never forget about you is to take life with joy and strength. Last you told me "I want to see my girls fat by eating doughnuts." We will miss you so much <3"
"Ginger gave many years of her work life to helping our Alliance members achieve health and well being. She was a pioneer who made a difference in the health of our communities, and her giving spirit strengthened our mission. May she rest in peace."
"An incredible co-worker and friend, Ginger, will be sorely missed. I'm sure she must be smiling down at this very moment with her angel wings, without pain or suffering; and, with her trademark smile and spirit...
ABSENT FROM THE BODY, PRESENT WITH THE LORD
2 Corinthians 5:8"
"Ginger was a blessing to those in touch with her. Her love of the Lord Jesus was bold and encouraging! She is now healed and dancing for joy with the Lord! My thoughts and prayers are with all of us that are left with out her (for now). May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every wayThe Lord be with all of you. (2 Thes 3:16)"
"Miss Ginger, you were my assigned "buddy" when I began work at SCCHO in December 1998 (a month after you!). You and I were two of the founding members of CCATS, and you were always willing to help put on fun activities for our staff - twice a month, no less! You will be missed terribly by all who knew you here at the Alliance. I'll miss your smile and good humor."
"I've known Ginger for a number of years and she was always quick with a 'hello' and a smile. I had the privilege of being on the same Winner's Cup Challenge team with her one year. She was often funny, but with a strong sense of responsibility. I admired and respected her. This is a great loss. My prayers to her and her family."
