Virginia “Ginger” Crum

November 27, 1967 — February 21, 2022

Virginia "Ginger" Ellen Crum, Of Saint Peters, Missouri, passed away Monday, February 21, 2022, at the age of 54. Loved daughter of the late Francis "Frank" and Betty-Ellen (Jon Hesskamp) Crum, beloved sibling of Christina (Richard) Brown, dear Aunt of Emilie, Carmen, and Blair Brown, dear granddaughter of the late Leoma Crum. Ginger is also survived by friends and caregivers Sue Strickland, Shontale Jones, Karen Hunn, Chelsea Jefferson, and more from Emmaus Homes.




Though an adult in body, Ginger always had the soul of a child. She lived a simple life, enjoying views through windows, loving the outdoors, splashing in water and playing Peekaboo. She enjoyed comfort, being pampered, and having pretty ribbons in her curly hair. Folks could see the emotions, curiosity, and communication in her very expressive beautiful eyes. She was captivating and amazing. She laughed, smiled, and cried. She is now perfect with our Lord in Heaven. She was dearly cared for and loved and will be missed by all who know and loved her.




Memorial donations in Ginger's name may be made to Emmaus Homes.
