Loreita Carmen (Medeiros) Ulleseit Obituary
Loreita Carmen (Medeiros) Ulleseit
June 1, 1932 - August 19, 2014
Resident of San Jose
Loreita Carmen (Medeiros) Ulleseit, 82, passed away August 19, 2014, after a long illness, at her home in San Jose with her husband of 61 years by her side.
She was born June 1, 1932, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is preceded in death by her mother, Carmen Dolores (James) (Medeiros) Rodrigues, and her father, Manuel Medeiros. She came to California with her family in 1942 and attended school at the Berkeley School for the Blind. She married William Fred Ulleseit in 1953, lovingly raised two sons, and devotedly spoiled five grandchildren.
Loreita was active with the Lion's Blind Center of Santa Clara County where she was a longtime member of the Muzikats kazoo band. For many years, she looked forward to the Blind Center's annual overnight gambling trip to Reno. Her open heart and warm sense of humor embraced everyone she encountered, and she never forgot an anniversary or birthday. She was loving, nurturing, and loyal—enjoying lunch with her sisters, cooking for her grandchildren, and attending steam train meets with her husband.
Loreita is survived by her sister, Doreen Rosalie Aimonetti; sister, Nathalie Sybil Rizzo; and brother-in-law, Ronald Rizzo, all of San Jose. She is also survived by her son, William Fred Ulleseit, Jr., and daughter-in-law Linda Ulleseit, of San Jose; and her son, Glenn Edward Ulleseit, of Los Gatos. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren; William Edward, Timothy Scott, and Nicholas William, all of San Jose; David Timothy, of Los Gatos; and Karli LeeAnn of Cameron Park. She is also survived by her stepfather, Earl Rodrigues, of Hilo, Hawaii.
Friends and family are invited to a viewing on Monday, August 25, 2014 from 3:00-9:00 p.m. and a funeral service on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at Darling & Fischer Chapel of the Hills, 615 N. Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos, California. Burial to follow at Los Gatos Memorial Park.
