Obituary Condolences

Gloria Bianchi Resident of San Mateo Passed away on October 30, 2013 in San Mateo, California at the age of 99. She was born on September 20, 1914 in Galveston, Texas to Ranieri and Germana Mori of Lucca, Italy, and was the youngest of three sisters. At a young age, her family moved to Lucca, Italy, where she eventually studied piano and became a piano teacher. Before World War TII, her family all immigrated back to the San Francisco area where she met and married Aldo Bianchi. She worked for Owens Illinois Glass Company as a secretary for many years, and eventually followed the company's move to San Mateo. Gloria loved piano, and continued to play it daily for most of her life, and her music was part of family gatherings over the years. She enjoyed getting together with family and friends, laughter, dining out, and her special group of friends at St. Gregorys, and was an excellent cook of Italian food and a lovely hostess. Gloria was preceded in death by her husband, Aldo and her sister Elena Mori. Left with fond memories of her gaiety, sense of beauty and enjoyment of life are her sister Olga Tesauro of San Mateo, her nieces Johanna Tesauro of Half Moon Bay and Marilyn Tesauro of Los Angeles, her Grand Nephews Nicholas Tesauro Young of Austin, Texas and Michael Tesauro Young, also her godson, of Seattle, Washington, many extended family members from the Stockton area, and Italy, and dear friends. The Rosary will be held at Sneider, & Sullivan and O'Connell's Funeral Home in San Mateo on Monday evening at 7:00 pm, and Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Gregory's Tuesday at 10:00 am in San Mateo.
