Ginger Diane Fitzgerald was born on October 14, 1955 in Susanville,
California to Bob and Garnie Pinneo. She was called to Heaven on June
28, 2022.

Ginger and her two siblings grew up in Litchfield, where they spent
their time competing in horse shows and rodeos. Ginger was very
competitive and loved team roping more than anything.

She attended Shaffer School, and then went on to graduate from Lassen
High School with honors. She spent most of her career working in the
school system. She retired in 2015 with 37 years of service with Cal
PERS. Ginger was a very smart and highly respected businesswoman. She
loved her career and was dedicated to doing her very best at every job
she had.

Ginger married Joe Fitzgerald on November 24, 1979. They raised three
children--Bobby, Ross, and Katy, and they celebrated 40 years together.
Their years were devoted to being very involved with their kids in
rodeos, 4-H and FFA, and they team roped as much as they could. After
the kids were grown and she and Joe both retired, they finally had time
to devote all their time to team roping, and they absolutely loved it.

Ginger was caring, strong-willed, smart, loving, tough as nails, and was
a very hard worker. She loved her family dearly and was a great friend
to many people.

Ginger was preceded in death by her husband, Joe, father, Bob, mother,
Garnie, and brother Rob.

She is survived by her children--Bobby, Ross (Jayme) and Katy (Juan);
her four grandchildren, Braiden, Danni, Logan, and Tyler; her sister
Ronda (Fred); her step granddaughter, Savanah; and many nieces, nephews,
and cousins.

Ginger will be greatly missed. Her spunk, wittiness, laugh, wisdom, and
her kind heart will be long remembered.

Joe and Ginger will be laid to rest together in a private family
ceremony at Janesville Cemetery. A celebration of life to honor Ginger
will be held on July 16, 2022 at 1:00 at Hugh and Cheri Blosser's
residence. Tri tip and rolls will be provided, and side dishes would be
