Ginger was often heard bragging about her five grandkids to anyone she met while out and about either at the post office or grocery store.  She loved to spoil them with buckets of peanut butter fudge and passing along her love of ice cream!  She looked forward to their calls and visits, but they knew not to call when she was watching her Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.  


Growing up in Steeler country, Ginger was a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan who looked forward to every game, Terrible Towel within reach. 


Before moving closer to her family in fall of 2019, she was part of a senior bowling league in Bolivar, PA. 


In Ginger’s free time, she loved crafting, specifically with yarn and plastic canvas.  Either making gifts for family and friends or stockpiling for her yard sales, she loved finding new patterns and designs to share.
