Ginger Myers_Mom

Ginger Ruth Myers of Kansas City, Missouri passed away peacefully on Monday, October 26, 2020 at New Mark Care Center in Kansas City, Missouri. She was born March 15, 1941 to William B. and Gertrude R. Krzeszinski in Cypress Inn, Tennessee.

Ginger leaves behind her two children, son Barry E. Myers (Paul), Kansas City and daughter Tracey E. MacDonald, Kansas City. She leaves behind three grandchildren, Tyler MacDonald, Cameron MacDonald and Alexander MacDonald. She also leaves behind her sister, Janie E. Ullmann, Kansas City along with many nieces, nephews and long-time friends.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father, two brothers (Earlon and Robert) and two sisters (Jean and Gayle).

Ginger always loved to dance and read. She was the all-star basketball player in high school and was very proud to be recognized. She was an office manager at Flint Ink, Metro Crown International and eventually owned her own business, Ginger’s House of Collectibles. Although she and Mel, her ex- husband were divorced, her wedding day will always be one of her favorite memories along with a trip she took with her sister, Janie to New York. She never knew a stranger and was the life of the party. She was a ray of sunshine and if you were having a bad day, she was the one that could always lift you up with her positive attitude and big smile. One of her favorite things to do was spend time with her family, especially her three grandsons who she loved more than chocolate covered gummy bears and World Class Chocolate ice cream from Baskin Robbins.


Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the family will be holding a private remembrance for Ginger at a later date.

Memorial Contributions

The family suggests donations to the Alzheimer’s Association or those in need over the holidays as Christmas was her favorite time of year.

    Tracey she was one of my best friend in high school! We have kept in touch all of these years. I am so sorry but know she had no quality of life these last few years. We have so many good memories of our High School days. I will always love her. Thinking of you in the days ahead.
