Ginger Lou (Rogers) LaForge, age 64, beloved mother of two, passed away on December 27, 2021, after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
She was born on July 22, 1957, to Hersey and Bonnie (Fuller) Rogers in Lakeview, MI, and grew up in Edmore, MI.
Ginger was a seamstress and was very talented. She loved helping people decorate their homes and enjoyed shopping for others as well as herself. She enjoyed nights going out to eat with her friends and family.
She was very proud of her children and loved her family dearly. She considered her mother and brother “her world” for many years. Many people fondly remember her as being the “big sister,” even if they were not related, as she was always taking care of and protecting those around her.
Ginger also had an affinity for fixing things and loved working on motors and cars.
She is survived by her mother, Bonnie; her stepfather, Donald Fuller; two daughters, Danae Christie and Danielle (Todd) Collen; grandchildren, Matthew, Taylor, Jaden, Craig (Susie), Amber, and Caden; great-grandchild, Craig; brothers, Randy (Carrie), Troy and Jeff Rogers; stepbrothers, Randy Fuller and Donald Fuller Jr.; special friends, Corrine (Paul) Olsen, Lebeth Nester, and Gerilynn; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
