celebrating the life of Virginia “Ginger” Johnson

2:11 pm

The family has asked that I pass along an invitation to a celebration of life for Ginger Johnson that will be held on May 25th. 

Ginger passed away on March 4th at the age of 93. 
Others who knew her better can surely speak to her legacy, but I knew her through her years of coverage of the Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo during the San Diego CBC. Ginger was a founding member of Western Field Ornithologists (then California Field Ornithologists) in 1970, served as an editor of Western Birds, and drew the sketch of the Sabine’s Gull that serves as the WFO logo and graces the cover of each issue of Western Birds. In 2010, WFO awarded her the Alan M. Craig award for exceptional service to the organization.

 A celebration of life will be held on May 25th, 1:00–4:00pm at:
Casa Guadalajara Restaurant
4105 Taylor St
Old Town, San Diego, CA 
Please RSVP with Annie Marsch amm249232019@…
For convenience, I’ve cc’d Annie here.
My condolences to those who knew her personally.
