After graduating high school, in Savannah, Ginger moved to Venice Beach, California, where she soaked up the sun for 25 years before returning to Savannah.
Ginger loved the ocean and was adored by the Venice Beach community, but never shed her country girl roots.

Ginger also volunteered much of her time creating wigs for cancer patients, she often said that "looking good is the first step to feeling good." Ginger was a gifted cook and horticulturalist, to name just a couple of her many talents, and animals of all kinds held a special place in her heart.
She also loved spending time and laughing with her sister, Hava Wall. Above all else, she devoted her life to her children and grandchildren.
