Ginger (Virginia L.) Keith, of Winona, died on Sunday, March 18, 2018, at her home.

Originally from Winnebago, MN, she was preceded in death by her parents: Harold and Vergia Headley; her husband, Harry E.

Ginger retired from the Winona Public Library where she worked as a reference librarian, and the Winona County Historical Society where she worked in the archives.

The family wishes to thank all her caregivers Lindsey, Rozy, Jessica, Lindsy, Kelsey, Megan, Kayla and Holly (and Sam) for all their care and affection provided to Ginger over her final years.
