Memories Timeline


  1. Sorry from all of my Family to all of you that are part of Gingers family that she has passed on. We remember when she and Bill came out to see us while Milt was still with us. That is a great and special memory. I know it made Milt very happy to have so many of his family come out. Strange that he passed on the next year. Maybe they are together now with their Mom and Dad, Dragon and Bill and my son Mike,just looking down and watching over us. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Our thoughts are with you, Love you all from Barb, Milty and Jen, Melanie, Mark ,Maddy and Cole.

  2. We are so sorry to here about Aunt Ginger’s passing. She had a beautiful smile and laugh. I’ll never forget her first trip to the ocean with Uncle Bill, Aunt Zelma and Uncle John with Dad and Mom. Also the great memories from Cindy and Rich’s wedding. All the dancing, smiles and laughter we all shared as a family. We will all miss you Aunt GiGi, but we will remember the good times and you will always be in all of our hearts. Life is a gift. Sometimes we forget that, but when people die that we love they never truly leave us. They live forever in our hearts and it makes us richer people for knowing them. Love all of you and send our deepest sympathy. Melanie Mark Madison and Cole

  3. It was certainly sad to hear of Aunt Gigi’s passing…some of my earliest memories are of her babysitting me and making me “Cowboy eggs” (scrambled) when my sister, Tanya, was born. I will long remember her ready laughter, quick wit and beautiful singing voice when she harmonized with family and friends as my Uncle Bill played the guitar at the family farm. May we all take solace in knowing that she led a full life, accompanying my uncle on hunting and fishing trips to Canada, spending time with family and friends at the farm, and finding joy in celebrating the simple pleasures of life. Deepest sympathy from Mike, Bonnie, Brandi, and Michael.

  4. My condolences to the family. Ginger was a lovely woman that I was so lucky to have known. Always so sweet to me. She will be missed.
