Only having a sixth grade education due to family circumstances, she decided she wanted more in life. She went on to earn her GED and attended business classes at MCC. Ginger was an entrepreneur who, over the span of her joyous life, owned and operated four different businesses in Robinson and Waco. She also used her life circumstances and education to speak to inmates at numerous women's prisons to encourage and inspire them to realize life can begin anew. She enjoyed vacationing in the American Southwest, especially Zion and Arches National Parks in Utah, camping and fishing at Lake Waco, swimming, music, and art. More than anything, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.
