Ms. Virginia “Ginger” Player Bryant, 56, of Americus, passed away on May 11, 2022 at Phoebe-Sumter Medical Center.  Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 11:00AM in the chapel of Way-Watson Funeral Home, Ellaville with Rev.

Attended Brooklyn Heights Christian School with Ginger and Darren. Mr. Edgar and Ms. Opal were well known to me as they were very involved in church and school activities. Ginger was a friendly, caring person. Hunble and kind. Never heard her say anything bad about anybody. Christ was with her. Now she is with him. Goodbye, for now, Ginger. May God bless and protect your family, in Jesus' name, Amen.
