Ginger was a master quilter and crocheter. She loved to garden and could grow anything. She was also an avid bowler and fisherwoman. She loved to catfish at Fort Gibson Lake. Her holiday dinners were famous and her egg noodles were unmatched by anyone. She loved Christmas best of all with all her children and grandkids around her. She also loved to travel to yellow stone and the Royal Gorge; she went up Pikes Peak and made many trips to Arkansas and Missouri. She traveled in fall to enjoy the changing leaves. She traveled to Texas to fish in the Gulf. But her biggest love was the baseball team of the St. Louis Cardinals. She rarely missed a game that was on T.V. or the radio.
