She was born in Niles California November 3, 1919 to Mario and Josephine Ruggeri (predeceased).
She will be sadly missed by her daughter Janet, her sister Lelia, brother Mario, nieces Maia, Valerie, nephew Paul, all their children, a special cousin Irene Grant, the Schliehaufs and many kind neighbours from Essex.
She met the love of her life George Reed (predeceased) during the war, married him and moved to Essex to his farm to be a war bride.
She enjoyed painting, drawing, sewing, embroidery, cooking and dancing.
While immobile, current events, politics and the movies became her main interests.
Being outgoing she loved to chat and made friends easily.
She will be missed.
I thank the staff at Helen Henderson for their kindness and professionalism.
The only request she would make is to be kind to one another.
