Virginia Lindstedt

Virginia “Ginger” Lee Lindstedt peacefully entered her eternal home on Sunday, June 11, 2017. She courageously battled a long-term illness. Her adoring husband and loving daughter were by her side as she passed away in her Sun City West, Ariz., home.

Ginger was the second of three girls born to Campbell H. Hooper and Bonnie V. Hooper (Flud) on March 18, 1945 in Lindsay, Calif. She was a licensed cosmetologist for many years and obtained her Associates of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice from Merced Community College in 1995.

Locally, she is known for her role as a legal advocate with Mountain Crisis Services where she served abused women with love, passion, dedication and tenacity for more than 15 years until she retired in 2009.

She is survived by her loving husband of nearly 27 years, James B. Lindstedt; sons Norman W. Barnett, Jr. (Elizabeth), of San Jose, Calif., and Michael H. Barnett (Nida) of Manteca, Calif.; daughter, Pamela J. Mears (Gary), of Tracy, Calif.; and step-son, Kenneth G. Lindstedt of Fresno, Calif.

Ginger is also survived by eight wonderful grandchildren plus two step-grandchildren which she absolutely adored, Jessica (Bryce), Nicole, Brittanie, Brooke, Bridget, Ciera, Kayla, Joey, Zoe and Tiffanie. She also has two surviving sisters, Victoria E. Hooper of Mariposa, Calif., and Nancy J. Hart (Tom), of Cincinnati, Ohio. She leaves behind many loving family members and friends.

A Celebration of Life in Ginger’s honor will be held on July 1, 2017 at Mariposa Lutheran Church, 4469 Highway 49 South, Mariposa, CA 95338 beginning at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow at the church.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her honor to the non-profit closest to her heart, Mountain Crisis Services, P.O. Box 2075, Mariposa, CA 95338.
