Mary and Rich Simoni raised their children Kathy Zuffanelli, Laurie Petruzzi, Dan McKenzie, and Lea Reed in Ben Lomond in a great 1900's estate that was THE place to play, and hosted many notorious charity social events in the 70's. Mary founded Pacific Treatment Associates in Santa Cruz with her partner, Vee Duvall in 1984, and is remembered and cherished by hundreds of people and families she guided towards health. Mary was "Bunny" to her grandchildren, Robbie, Ami, Elisa, Richie, Nicco, Dan, Roman, Maria, Jordan, Madeline and Aiden in whom she inspired a legacy of love, strength, integrity, laughter, and passion as well as her loving son-in-laws Paolo Zuffanelli, Roberto Petruzzi and Cris Reed.
