Blessings to Ginger’s family. I first met her at bible study at Hope 36 years ago. Although she is close to my age I was a young mother and Ginger a beloved mother and grandmother. She took me under her wing and even babysat for me. Know she loved the Lord and safely in His arms although she will be missed here on earth by all who’s lives she touched.

We send our sincere sympathy to all the family - children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings. You are now separated from a beautiful, funny, sweet Christian lady. Although it is sad for those of us who will miss her, there is joy in knowing she knew the Lord and was ready to be with Him. Her strong faith in Jesus Christ has made it possible for her to win the victory and gain the Crown of Life. She is no longer suffering and no longer missing the love of her life, her beloved Tom. You will all be reunited again one day. In Christian love, Laura & Tom

Mark and I send our deepest condolences to Ginger’s family. Although we did not get to see her much a couple of my fondest memories were of course when I took the road trip with my dad down to Dallas for a wedding and spend time with all of the Potters at their house and of course a family wedding was always just that a family wedding! We are family! And the time Mark and I went down to watch a football game I believe in St. Louis when the Cowboys played and Tom and Ginger were there. They were blessed to have a great life to travel and enjoy each other and many experiences. I know she loved her family and of course loved her Buddy!I am thankful I was able to see her last summer ❤️ Our memories are the things that keep our family alive, hold onto them tightly.

A friend for more than forty years. We vacationed, we visited, we loved and we supported each other the entire time. Ginger was the consummate mother, wife, friend and lady. The world has lost a true example of what an exemplary person is. No doubt she is in heaven and will watch over her family and friends forever,

I am heartbroken and send hugs and love to my cousins and their families. Auntie Ginger was a bright light in our family. She and Tom opened their home to me when I moved to Kansas City for a brief time years ago. We had many long talks and good times. In recent years, Ginger and I exchanged e-mails often times with dogs as the main subject. She sent me notes of encouragement and love over the past few years. I have always thought of her when I hear Elvis singing and will continue to do so in the years ahead. Her faith was strong and I know she is with our heavenly Father now. Love and peace to everyone who knew her and loved her.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I know I haven’t seen her in many years but loved communicating on Facebook. I remember her being like another mother to me and going to Cowboy games with the family. Great memories.

My heart breaks just learning about Ginger’s passing. I was friends of both Tom and Ginger. They knew me as SusanLexus. I helped train them on the technology in their Lexus. But our friendship grew beyond that especially when we made the Iowa connection and realized their niece was a dear friend of my Mothers who recently passed. Ginger and I became FB friends and then we lost Tom. I knew I would receive bad news once I received a text from her daughter Jodi today but it is not what I wanted to hear. I wish we could have had one more phone call or text message exchange. She meant a lot to me and I always felt Tom made sure we knew each other so she had someone to answer questions about her car. Our Heavenly Father brings us together in the most unusual ways. I’m grateful for the few years I knew these two and pray for comfort and healing for the entire family. Love, SusanLexus
