Winifred "Winnie" Airaudi

WINIFRED AIRAUDI Loving Mother & Devoted Grandmother Resident of Redwood City Winifred "Winnie" Airaudi, age 84, died at Ralston Village on Thursday, August 10, 2006. Winnie was born July 7, 1922 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She moved to San Francisco as a child, where she attended Mission High School, graduating in 1941. Following WWII, she married recently discharged and Silver Star recipient Marine Sergeant, Claud James Airaudi in 1946. Winnie and Claud moved to Redwood City in 1949, where they resided until Claud's death in 2004. Winnie worked for the Redwood City School District as a Secretary at Garfield, Lincoln and Washington Elementary Schools, and the District Office from 1959-1983. In addition to raising two children, the always organized and people-loving Winnie became active in the Delta Chi Sigma charitable Sorority, serving as President and Fashion Show Chairwoman. Winnie will be forever remembered for her warmth, generosity and kindheartedness. She is survived by her children, Richard Airaudi of Danville, CA, and Claudia Myall of Redwood City, as well as their spouses Theresa Airaudi and Gregory Myall, and her grandchildren Jon, David and Michael Airaudi, and Meredith and Nathaniel Myall. We are deeply grateful to the caregivers (former and present) and nurses of Ralston Village, Pathways Home Health & Hospice and Faheemah Breaux, who lovingly and with great devotion and skill cared for our mother these past years. A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23, 2006 at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Redwood City. Visitation will commence at 10:00 a.m. Contributions in Winnie's memory may be made to the Ralston Village Employee Appreciation Fund, 1301 Ralston Avenue, Belmont, CA 94002.
