Ginger, one of sixteen, was born in Holdingford,
Minnesota, on November 5, 1926, to Frances
Herman Langner and John Casimier Langner. This
is where she grew up, attended school, enjoyed
cheerleading with her best friend Leona Kollodge
and met her husband of 43 years.
On August 1, 1950, in Holdingford, she was
married to Alfred F. Pintok, the love of her
life. The two of them then moved to the
Portland, Oregon, area where they raised a
family of seven.
Ginger was a kind and humble person who loved
children. She devoted her life to being a loving
wife, mother and grandmother, and was truly the
selfless servant who lived to care for her
family and loved ones.
Prior to marriage, Ginger worked in St. Paul,
Minnesota, in Los Angeles, California, at the
Bureau of Internal Revenue and at the Federal
Building in Portland, Oregon. Throughout her
married life, she managed two full time
positions as a wife and mother and also as a
logging partner beside her husband in the woods.
She was a Godly woman of small stature who
housed a big spirit.
