Virginia "Ginger" Perry passed away peacefully from complications from dementia, August 5, 2022 in Grand Junction Colorado surrounded by the love of her nurses and her daughter Gina. Ginger was born July 27, 1943 to Thad and Marion Rogers in Elko, NV. Ginger spent her younger years helping her mother at the beauty shop cleaning and learning the tricks of the trade. She eventually became a licensed cosmetologist and bought the hair salon from Marion. Ginger had a special love for gardening and flowers. She spent many years in the garden and had a special knack for the roses. Ginger also loved photography and had many of her photographs framed in her home. Although Ginger had many talents she spent most of her life being a caregiver and homemaker. The love of her life was her cat Riley that she adopted after he became part of the family while she took care of Thad in his final years. She enjoyed being a part of the senior center and eating lunch and playing pinochle with her many friends.
Ginger is preceded in death by her parents Thad and Marion Rogers and her brother David Rogers. She is survived by her daughter Gina Perry (Grand Junction Co), Todd Perry (adopted son) and Kay Moore (niece), her brother Dennis Rogers (Reno) and her sister Jody Tewell (Elko).
