“Ginger”

 

Ginger stepped from earthly life into Eternal Life in the arms of Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior, on August 7, 2022.  She was known as a woman of wisdom and kindness and was a long-time member of Grace Chapel in Bedminster, New Jersey, a church family whom she dearly loved.  

Ginger was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on December 31, 1949, and attended St. Paul School for Girls, followed by Gettysburg College, where she earned a BS degree in biology.  She was a gifted artist and gardener who worked as both a microbiologist and a church administrator.

She found joy in her family who adore her.  She is survived by Robert Blickens, her husband of 51 years; son Zachary Blickens and daughter Erica Blickens; daughter-in-law Sarah Blickens; granddaughters Sierra Zürcher and Kailah Blickens; grandson-in-law Pierre Zürcher; and sisters Lynne Perry and Gabrielle Lanier.

She lived her life by these verses, which were a daily encouragement and strength for her:

         “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
            in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

- Proverbs 3:56

There will be a private service for the family, and a Celebration of Life service will be held at Grace Chapel in Bedminster, New Jersey, in late autumn at a date and time to be announced.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Grace Chapel Missions Fund, 375 Main Street, Bedminster, NJ 07921.
