June 29, 1925 – October 22, 2020_x000D_
Pauline Grace Ginocchio, 95, passed away peacefully from this life the morning of October 22, 2020 surrounded by her loving family. The daughter of Paul and Grace Anderegg, was born June 29, 1925 in Merced, California. After attending schools in Merced, she attended Four C’s Business College in Fresno, and returned to her hometown to work for the Merced Farm Bureau. During WWII she worked at Castle Air Force Base as an Airman where she supported the United States Military war effort. 

Pauline moved to Turlock when she married her husband, Byron Ginocchio, in 1951 and has called Turlock her home ever since. There they established a life together on a small ranch having two beautiful daughters and then later watching their six grandsons grow up. The family has fond memories of birthday parties, tractor rides, go cart races, and other countless activities that attracted many. Family meant everything to Pauline, she was always there to support and encourage her loved ones, never missing a concert, sports event, or theater production. Pauline and Byron loved to travel, and enjoyed taking cruises. They enjoyed trips to Alaska, Europe, Australia, and the Caribbean, but the day they were most proud was the day they could say they visited all fifty of the United States.

Pauline was creative and inspirational, showing us what it meant to work hard and develop a dedicated work ethic. She loved her yard, and spent countless hours planting flowers, gardening, and landscaping with rocks that she had collected on family outings. She was a wonderful, loving, positive person, our “honey girl.” She was loved, cherished and will truly be missed by many.

Pauline is survived by two daughters, Cherie Jackson (Jeff) and Lori Ginocchio; and six grandsons, Brett Baker, Byron Baker, Paul Jackson, Jeffry Jackson, Jaymie Jackson, and Tim Jackson. Pauline is also survived by her sister Helen Bernaciak. She is preceded in death by her sister Violet Anderegg, and her husband Byron Ginocchio.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 1 P.M. Saturday, November 28 at Allen Mortuary (247 North Broadway, Turlock). Masks and social distancing will be necessary. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to:
