Ginger grew up in southern California and graduated from college in Los Angeles – where she met David (from Nanakuli, HI). After graduating, Ginger and David married and then returned to Hawaii.

Over the decades, Ginger worked for Honolulu Iron Works, Dillingham Corp, Bishop Trust Co & Bank of Hawaii – before retiring in 2015. Her free-time pursuits over the years included baking, walking, running, reading, sewing & her pets (dog-Summer; cat-Koko).
