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.

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.
