Several years ago Ginger was employed at Care West Home as a Physical Therapist and Silva’s Pharmacy in Stockton. She enjoyed car rides with family and friends to local casinos enjoying the buffets and just being together socializing. She loved old school music as she would always sing along and dance to her favorite oldies. Ginger always had a smile on her face as her laugh was extremely infectious. Her zest for life always lit up the room she will be missed.
