Ginger will be lovingly remembered by her children: Karen and Harold Crawford of Everett, WA, Linda and Mark Owen of Colorado Springs, CO; two grandchildren, Nathan and Wendy Crawford of Everett, WA, Jonathan and Courtney Crawford of Kentwood; special friends Mary Gainey-Sutton, Bette McCune, and Lillian.

Her first loves were her family, spending time with them, playing games, playing bridge with Kentwood Seniors at the Rec Center, and going on bus trips with her friends at American House Kentwood. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation for the excellent care Ginger received by the American House Kentwood staff and Grace Hospice Grand Rapids. Cremation has taken place. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, gifts in Ginger’s memory can be given to Crash’s Landing or the charity of one’s choice.
