Evangelin 'Ginger' Drought, 88, Longtime Greenwich Resident

GREENWICH, Conn. — Longtime Greenwich resident Evangelin "Ginger" Drought died on Wednesday, April 27. She was 88.

She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Aug. 28, 1928, to Harry and Katherine Aidinis.

Her family moved to Greece and returned to the U.S. in 1940  before Germany's invasion.

She graduated from Greenwich High School in 1947 and later from the Merrill Business School in Stamford with an executive secretarial degree.

She worked for many years as secretary to the manager of the Belle Haven Club, and, subsequently, as the office manager at Putnam Plumbing on Bruce Park Avenue in Greenwich. She also worked as a bookkeeper in the accounts receivable department at Cummins & Lockwood, a Stamford law firm, until her retirement in 1993.

Drought is survived by two sons, Mark and Jeffery; and a daughter-in-law, Mary.

She was predeceased by her husband, Lawrence W. Drought.

There will be no funeral service; however, those who would like to pay their final respects can visit from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4, at the Fred Knapp Funeral Home, 267 Greenwich Ave., in Greenwich.
