Obituary for Ginger A. Alsteen

Ginger A. Alsteen, age 72 of Rhinelander, passed away on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, at Rennes Health and Rehab with her family by her side. She was born on February 17, 1947, in Rhinelander to Clayton and Charlotte (Wales) Slack.

Ginger attended Zion Lutheran grade school and graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1965. She married Gary L. Alsteen Sr. on October 29, 1966, and together they raised their family of three children. In addition to her roles as wife and mother, Ginger was employed in clerical work for various businesses including a number of years with the Rhinelander Daily News and finally with Trig’s until her retirement.

Among her interests, Ginger enjoyed reading, puzzle books, ceramics, crocheting, camping, and music. She especially enjoyed travel and trip adventures with family and friends provided wonderful stories and great memories. She was a gracious hostess who hosted fun filled parties at the house for family and friends. Ginger also enjoyed supporting her husband, Gary and his band “The Desperados” as they played throughout the area. She was a lifelong member of Zion Ev. Lutheran Church. Though health challenges in later years would limit her opportunities, Ginger will be remembered for her love of family and love of fun. She is now at peace and waiting to welcome us who remain here into the Lord’s heavenly kingdom.

Ginger is survived by her husband of 52 years, Gary L. Alsteen of Rhinelander; her three children, Ann (Brad) Sarkauskas of Milwaukee, WI, Gary Jr. (Stacy Nolden) Alsteen of Rhinelander, and C.J.
