Mrs. Ginger Rae Wainwright Holton, age 48, of Fernandina Beach, passed away on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at Shands of Jacksonville.

Born in Montgomery, AL, she was the daughter of George Ray Wainwright and Lucie Henrietta Lynch. She grew up in Montgomery until her family moved to Fernandina Beach in 1980. Ginger was a graduate of Fernandina Beach High School, Class of 1986. After high school, she attended Florida Community College of Jacksonville.

At the age of 16, she met Ted R. Holton, whom she would marry in 1988. During their marriage, Ted worked for FPU, the City of Fernandina Beach and was the Owner of Wet Zone Irrigation. Ginger was her husband’s strongest supporter throughout his over 20 years of coaching and traveling with Babe Ruth Baseball in Fernandina Beach and Yulee.

She was a Notary and had performed numerous weddings around Nassau County over the years. She and Ted made their home an inviting place for anyone that came by and commonly took in local children needing a safe place to stay for a few days. Her family was her heart. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and grandmother. She will be missed by all who knew her.

She is preceded in death by a sister, Bonnie Blue Wainwright.

    My sweet Ginger. You are missed so much. So much has changed since you left us. The world you left has been forever changed, most of it for the better and some still needs help that only God can change. I think of you so often and wish I could just go and sit and talk things out. You just always had a different way of looking at things that made sense and we would wind up laughing our heads off and say how ridiculous the situation was. I know you are with Jesus now and are healthy and whole and will be forever young. You had such an impact on me. And here I am four years later still missing you just like I was the day you left. Love you always.
