Ginger L. (Williams) DeMoss

October 11, 1971 — January 14, 2024

Ginger L. (Williams) DeMoss, 52, of Quincy, IL., (formerly of Camp Point, IL.) went to be with her Lord at 6:51 p.m. Sunday, January 14, 2024, at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, IL.

Born October 11, 1971, in Miami, FL., she was a daughter of Robert and Charlene Mary (VanWie) Williams. Ginger grew up in Miami, one of her very favorite places on Earth. A spunky, baton-twirling, scuba-diving young woman, she graduated from Miami Killian High School in 1989. She then obtained her bachelor’s degree in psychology/education, with honors, at the University of Miami in 1995 and her master’s degree in human development counseling from the University of Illinois at Springfield in 1999. 

Though she adored the ocean, she always wanted to marry a farmer in the Midwest. Having met her future husband through the 1995 Farm Journal Singles Directory, she married her love, David DeMoss, on June 20, 1998, at the Camp Point United Methodist Church. He survives. In the book she was writing on the day she passed, she explained that she “loved everything about living on the farm – the big sky, the beautiful flowers, and the company of furry friends.” She courageously opened her own counseling business before having children and becoming a full-time homemaker and farm wife. 

Ginger absolutely adored traveling. She had explored places in Europe, South America, Canada, multiple national parks and many of the 50 states. Thanks to Ginger’s excellent trip-planning, she and her family recently got to experience what they thought was the trip of a lifetime to Hawaii, where they explored the beautiful ocean and hiking on the islands. Being an avid historian, she was on a quest to visit all of the national presidential libraries. Everywhere they traveled, Ginger always had a story to tell her family or a fun fact about where they were going. 

She had a passion for gardening, swimming in the ocean, researching, and was in the process of writing a book about the history and genealogy of the DeMoss family. She was an amazing story-teller, just like her dad, and always entertained her family with her constant stories and her contagious laugh. She treasured her “Friday Friends” and her neighborhood bunco friends. She was a member of Camp Point United Methodist Church and was most recently attending LifePoint Church of Quincy, where she served as a Sunday-school teacher. Committed to saving Jensen Woods Camp of Timewell, IL, a Christian camp dear to her heart, she was a founding member of the Jensen Camp Foundation. 

Ginger lived her life to the fullest, brightening every room she entered with her genuine, joyful smile and laugh. She loved to spoil her three beautiful children by planning extraordinary vacations and giving countless gifts. Excited to be “Grandma GiGi,” she was already spoiling her yet-to-be born first granddaughter, who she was looking forward to meeting. Though her family will miss her dearly, they are comforted by the promise that they will see her again one day in Heaven.

Survivors are her husband, David DeMoss; her children, Christian (Julia) DeMoss, Alaina DeMoss, and Cody DeMoss; her mother, Charlene Williams; her sister, Theresa Williams (David Peale) and their daughter, Emma Peale; her brother, Tim Williams (Tina); her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Wes and Ruth DeMoss; her sister-in-law, Debbie Tenhouse and her children, Jesslyn, Lauren, Regan, and Collin; her brother-in-law, Jim Molidor and his children, Margot, Mitchell, and Audrey; and numerous cousins and friends.

  She was preceded in death by her father, Captain Bob Williams, her sister-in-law, Danette Molidor, and her cousin, Roselyn Jensen.

  Visitation will be held from 2:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Sunday, January 21, 2024, at Madison Park Christian Church in Quincy.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. Monday, January 22, 2024, by Chris Woodard at Madison Park Christian Church in Quincy. Burial will follow at Evergreen Cemetery, Camp Point.
