Ginger Winder, who helped her husband, Bill, operate Winder Industries and later founded a business selling nautical jewelry and accessories, died after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. She was 79.
Born in Yonkers, N.Y., Winder moved to New Jersey in 1966 after marrying Bill Winder. She joined the business as a corporate officer, first at Hudson Marine in Elizabeth, then at Win-Tron Electronics in Spring Lake Heights.
She is the stepmother of Win-Tron president Edward Winder.
While still at Win-Tron, she founded and operated her own marine business, Sea Jewels, selling nautical jewelry and accessories both wholesale and retail and exhibiting at boat shows.
She was happiest enjoying her waterfront home on the Toms River, watching her colony of purple martins and migrating ducks, tending her flower garden, entertaining on her deck, shopping for clothes and visiting Atlantic City and Las Vegas, according to her obituary.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Alzheimer's Association, 400 Morris Avenue, Denville, N.J., 07834.
