Ginger Manchester was an entertainer from Fort Wayne, Indiana. We sadly lost Ginger in January of 2021. Ginger will be remembered for leaving her mark in pageantry, but most of all she will be remembered as someone who constantly gave back to her community. Over the years Ginger helped and contributed to countless individuals and organizations. We salute the artistry that was Ginger Manchester.
