Ginger Daniels Obituary

 

Ginger Lynne (Schumann) Daniels was born December 2nd, 1944, in Houston, Texas to Gerhart Otto Schumann and Dorothy Leo (Mullins) Schumann. She passed from this earth on Friday, December 15th, 2023, surrounded by family and caregivers at The Shattuck Nursing Center in Shattuck, Oklahoma.

After graduating from Lamar High School in 1963, Ginger went on to serve in the United States Navy. She served from August 1964 -November 1967, stationed at VT – 31 then HFU, CNAVANTRA, NAS, Corpus Christi, Texas with the rank of YN2. Ginger entered the Navy during the Vietnam War serving State side, making her a Vietnam Era Veteran. One of the most notable awards Ginger received was The Man of the Month award. This award was not available for female service members at the time but was later named Sailor of the Month award. Ginger was very proud of her military service always making sure that everyone knew she was a female veteran.

On July 28th, 1969, on a hot summer day in Houston, Texas Ginger married the love of her life Thomas Ray Daniels and to this union three children were born Thomas Edward, Jennifer Elaine, and Brittany Lynne. Also, to this union two military soldiers were “adopted” into their lives, Willie Ray and Martha Ann. She used her time after the marriage to continue her education pursuing her passion in English education with a minor in history at the University of Houston and the University of San Francisco.

Ginger worked for the Department of the Army doing civil service work in public affairs and transportation from 1979 – 1994 at The Presidio of San Francisco, California and Fort Hood, Texas.  In 1994 she retired and settled down in Shattuck, Oklahoma. Not long after retiring she realized it wasn’t for her and went to work at several places including the Woodward Health Department, Mutual of Omaha, and the Census Bureau.

Ginger spent many years of her adult life volunteering through different organizations. She was a Girl Scout Leader in Belgium, San Francisco, CA and Killeen, TX, teaching many young kids life skills. She was the Regional Representative for Oklahoma and Texas, as well as the National Secretary capturing official meeting minutes for the Military Women Across the Nation. This was a position she held until this past October when medical issues caused her to resign. This was not just a position for her but her passion that was created by women veterans to spread awareness to other women about serving in the military. She spent a lot of time traveling and often taking cruises with her closest Navy Sisters, always encouraging women to be proud of who they are and their time in the service. Ginger also volunteered at The Shattuck Windmill Museum and thought the world of her windmill friends.

Ginger is preceded in death by her Husband Thomas Daniels, Father Gerhart Schumann, Mother Dorothy Schumann, Sister Melaine Frye Andrews, and numerous “Navy Sisters.”
