Ginger was a member of the Charlotte choral society, Friends of the Mint Museum, Myers Park Country Club, Myers Park United Methodist Church and many other groups. She truly enjoyed participating in all the parent opportunities at Charlotte Country Day School.
Ginger cherished her friendships made in her Sunday School class, “The Wesley Class”. She also enjoyed friends at the Mint Museum trips, fashion shows, Super Bowl dinners with her best friend, browsing antique shops, playing the piano and her poodles. Most of all she adored her husband and daughter.
Ginger married the love of her life in 1964, James Gresham Northcott. They built a wonderful life together in Charlotte raising their daughter. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who instilled the meaning of family.
