Ginger Lyn was born February 11, 1966 in Amarillo, TX to James Kenneth and Mary Evelyn (Hagler) Haddock. She was raised in Amarillo and Grand Junction, CO. While working in Amarillo at Corporate Systems, Ginger met the love of her life, Terry Anthony Driscoll and they were married September 18, 1987. Ginger was a stay at home mom until her boys began school. She became employed by Lubbock ISD as clerk, secretary and eventually became Executive Secretary in the central offices, and later helped start the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders. Ginger began a second career by graduating as a Registered Nurse through Covenant School of Nursing in 2011, and obtained her Bachelor's degree in Nursing from Lubbock Christian University in 2012. Following her graduation she worked at Covenant Hospital in the palliative care unit where she was able to share her compassion and love in order to bring relief and healing to her patients. Terry and Ginger moved to Abernathy in September of 2016. Ginger loved scrapbooking! She had a passion for making lasting memories with family and friends, taking pictures, and would take annual scrapbooking trips with friends to work on scrapbooks. She doted on her grandchildren and loved anything bright, colorful and cheery. Before Ginger became ill, she and Terry loved hot air ballooning. They were members of a hot air balloon club in Lubbock. She was an active member at Indiana Avenue Baptist Church and later moved her membership to Abernathy First Baptist Church. Ginger had a passion for classic cars, instilled in her by her father—especially the El Camino. Her generosity was shown in her love for shopping and gifting to those she loved. Ginger had great peace in knowing that she was a child of God, that she is saved by His grace, and that her salvation is a gift through Jesus’ sacrifice. She was deeply committed to Terry and her family and was always striving to love like Jesus. She is survived by her husband, Terry Driscoll of Abernathy, 2 sons, Matthew "Matt" Driscoll and wife Sara of Arlington, TX, 2 grandchildren, Jameson Porter and Daphne Leigh Driscoll, and Andrew "Drew" Driscoll and wife Merzie of Arvada, CO, her mother, Mary Haddock of Amarillo, TX and 2 sisters, Kaye Baldwin and fiance, Jeff Paxton and Kendra Neeley and husband Shawn, all of Amarillo and numerous nieces and nephews.
