Private services will be held later for Marie Bratsberg, who passed away on 10/6/17 after a brief illness.
Born Maggie Marie Ledbetter in Monterey, Tennessee, she was the 10th of 12 children. She was a proud member of the Women's Air Corps during WWII. She married the love of her life, Robert Bratsberg, two weeks after they met in Seattle, Washington. They were married over 50 years until Bob's death in 1997.
In 1966 the family moved to San Mateo, California, where Marie worked at Sears and Franklin Resources.
Forever an optimist, Marie exuded a calm and kind spirit, always looking on the bright side of every situation. She will be dearly missed by her three children, Julie Bratsberg of San Mateo, Robin Riviello of Santa Cruz, and Robert Jr. of Los Molinas, California. Her memory will be cherished by her grandchildren, Stephanie, Jameson, Nicholas, and Christopher Riviello. She is also survived by her brother, Talmadge Ledbetter, in Longview, Washington.
The family expresses special thanks to Dr. Nina Ramchandani at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto.
