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.
