Ginger was a loving mother, wife sister and grandmother. She was a good provider for her family and at times worked more than one job. Her time away from home was spent managing or waitressing at family restaurants in the Central Valley and on the North Coast.

Ginger had a green thumb and spent much of her free time gardening and enjoying time with her family. She also enjoyed a night out occasionally, at the local casinos for dinner and entertainment.

The family is planning to hold a private celebration of life at a future date.
