Argentine Orsolini
1/5/1908 - 6/1/2013

Angie passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the age of 105. She was born near Lucca, Italy, on January 5, 1908 to Angelo and Pia Puccetti. She came to Roseville, California with her family at the age of three and grew up on Elm Street.
Angie married Clemente Orsolini in 1927 and they built a house on the corner of Main Street and Marshall. Clemente passed away in 1964. Angie lived independently in the same house until the age of 99, when she went to live with her cousins in Citrus Heights, first with John and Olly May Giusti and, for the past five years, in the home of Danny and Paula Giusti.
Although they had no children of their own, Angie and Clemente were part of a large extended family. Angie took an important part in helping her sister, Adeline, raise her family and "Zia" (Italian word for aunt) has been a beloved member of this family for four generations.
In addition to her husband Clemente, Angie was preceded in death by her brother, Roy Puccetti, sisters Adeline Novella and Dolly Puccetti, and niece, Rosalie Bianchi. She is survived by her nephew, Frank Novella, grandnieces Christine Schwab and Kimberly Autajay, great-grandnieces Julianne Schwab and Kayla Autajay and great-grandnephew, Matthew Schwab. She will be sorely missed.
