Jeanette Fritzky, who stepped down from the Moraga Town Council in August as she fought lung cancer, died Friday after her battle with the disease. She was 63.
In July, following her diagnosis, Fritzky wrote in a letter she posted on the town’s website: “I find that I no longer have the energy, will or commitment to do something I used to revere.”
Elected to the Moraga Town Council in 2016 she was an executive in the pharmaceuticals sector and was a founder of CAPTURE Pharma Consulting, which she headed until her death.
Fritzky served in a variety of capacities during her 15 years as a Moraga resident, including as a member of the town’s parks and recreation commission and as an advocate for local cub scout groups.
The Moraga Town Council has voted to appoint Renata Sos, a town planning commissioner from 2005 until 2007, to fill the remainder of Fritzky’s term. Sos will be sworn in on Oct. 10.
Fritzky leaves behind her husband Bob and four adult children.
As per her wishes, there are no immediate plans for memorial services other than a private family observance.
