Ginger Rae Radley, age 55, Waupaca, WI, was unexpectedly called home to the Lord on December 12, 2013.
She was born to the late Gordon L. and Rose Mary (Johnson) Hansen on November 21, 1958 in Waupaca. Ginger graduated from Waupaca High School in 1976. She moved to California where she started a career, and gave birth to her pride and joy, son Wesley. Later in life she moved back to her home town of Waupaca with her son and married her high school sweetheart Rex Raymond Radley on September 21, 1991. Ginger was extremely passionate about singing, cooking (she made the best apples pies), watching NCIS, and watching her Soap Operas. Ginger had a heart of gold. She never hesitated to tell the ones she loved how much she loved them. She lived her life for her family, friends, and especially her grandbabies. Ginger loved everyone who crossed her path; and there was no one she would not lend a helping hand to. Even in death Ginger continued helping others by giving them the gift of life as an organ donor. May Ginger’s spontaneous declarations of love be forever her legacy!
