1922 - 2011 Obituary Condolences

Jean Hochstrasser Imsdahl passed away at her daughter's Napa home on January 22, 2011, following a lengthy illness.

The Los Angeles native was born Oct. 5, 1922 to Russian ‚migr‚s Martin & Tanya Carpoff. She was raised in San Francisco, where she met her first husband, Byrnis Nephi Hochstrasser. After his death in an auto accident, she married Hansel Imsdahl, who also preceded her in death. She had resided in Chico from 1955 to 1971.

She is survived by daughters, Tanya Clausen of Edmonds, WA, Pamela Swain of Napa, Holly Hochstrasser of Burlingame, Robin Leporati of Rocklin, Judy Boggs of Sacramento, and son, Larry Imsdahl of Forestville, as well as sisters, Fenia Baker of Citrus Heights and Nadia Karpoff of Carmichael; 11 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.

She had many fine qualities - among them, her heartfelt generosity, her radiant smile, the enjoyment she took in cooking, sewing and caring for her family, her exquisite wedding cakes, and the grace with which she donated to groups aiding paralyzed Veterans.

Friends are invited to attend her graveside service on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Glen Oaks Memorial Park in Chico.

Napa arrangements were cared for by Treadway & Wigger.

A Memorial service in Napa will be held at a later date.
