Geneva “Ginger” B. Wolak, 91, of Summerfield, FL passed away on February 16, 2017 following a short illness. She was born on Tancook Island, Nova Scotia to Hurley and Beatrice Cross and attended Medford Massachusetts High school, class of 1943. Ginger was a homemaker, but did work very briefly one Christmas at a Dunkin Donuts in Manchester, New Hampshire where she and her husband raised her family. That short stint turned into a family business with most all of her family working at or owning multiple Dunkin Donuts through the years. After moving to Florida in 1984 she joined the Orange Blossom Hills Homeowners Association, where she was quite active. She had held numerous offices in the association and was currently a director. She was always devoting her energies to the association, not only playing Bingo, but helping to sell during the games, organizing and chairing spaghetti dinners, looking after raffles, booking trips and lunches, she was always working.  On one auxiliary trip, she was able to arrange for her group to go backstage and meet Cesar Romero. Her favorite pastimes were spent traveling in their RV to campgrounds across the country with her husband Stan, playing cards and going to casinos. Ginger was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley E. Wolak who she shared 55 happy years of marriage and her brother, David Cross. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her daughter, Diana L. & husband, Richard Proulx of Hampton, New Hampshire, sons Edward Wolak & his wife Deborah of South Portland, Maine, Robert Wolak & his wife Deborah of Laconia, New Hampshire, Steven Wolak of Summerfield, FL and John Wolak & his partner, Patricia Zahn of Brentwood, New Hampshire and  her sisters, Pearl Thar & Charlotte Barry, sister in law Alice Cross, 7 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

    I only knew Ginger Since I moved to Summerfield. She took me under her wing and talked to me and taught me how to play cards. We went to show together and was one special person. If there was a problem or if I was afraid of the weather she would say Gin says everything is going to be okay. She was one special person who touched my heart and I will forever miss her, love you Gin, rest in peace

    I think about Ginger every day and can't believe how quickly she was taken from us. She was a special friend to me and I miss her energy and willingness to do whatever was asked of her. If there are slot machines in heaven, she's found them by now.

    I thought of you in love today but that is nothing new
    I thought about you yesterday and days before that,too. I think about you in silence,I often speak
    Your name. Now all I have is memories of the laughs
    And good times we shared together. Your memory is
    my keepsake witch I will never part.
    God has you in His keeping and I have you in
    my heart forever.
    My heart forever

    Ginger was an incredible woman. We can all hope to have such a long, active and fulfilling life. Her energy and get up and go attitude never ceased to amaze me. She was extremely proud of all her children and was the happiest, fittest 90 I've ever seen. I'll choose to remember her playing bingo together and every time I play Pai Gow. My deepest sympathies to the entire family. -Brad Guilds
