Virginia “Ginger” Higginbotham, 54, passed away peacefully at home in Pollock Pines, Calif., following a courageous two-year battle with cancer. Born in Walnut Creek, Calif., she attended Carondelet High School in Concord and graduated from California State University, Chico. A part-time substitute teacher, she will be remembered for her gentle spirit, her devotion to her family, her loyalty to her friends and her special affection for the community in which she lived.
Ginger is survived by her husband, Terry Higginbotham; their three children, Johanna, Elizabeth and Jake; seven brothers and sisters; 17 nieces and nephews; and a large extended family and circle of loving friends.
A memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m., on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, Calif. In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions to the Ginger Higginbotham Memorial Fund at Sierra Ridge Middle School, 2700 Amber Trail, Pollock Pines, CA 95726.
