I knew Ginger in the 70's. She was funny, kind and always willing to jump on an inter-tube flying behind a speed boat. I reconnected with her in the 1990's when she worked at The Bon Marche. She was still the same fun, energetic person that I remembered. She will be missed. She was one of a kind and I'm sure she left a ton of china and crystal (her passion from Fredrick's and Nelson's and mine from The Bon Marche) behind! Take care of those dishes!!
