Concetta Ann Mennella

Concetta Ann Mennella, born June 17, 1935 in San Pedro, CA and daughter of Louis and Pauline Pagano, peacefully passed away July 29 in Grass Valley, CA. Lovingly known as "Connie," she is survived by her daughter Aida and husband Stephen Baker; son Joseph Mennella; four grandchildren Anthony Mennella Vincent Mennella; Angela Nunnink; Christa Baker; and brother Louis Pagano and wife Kathleen. Deceased siblings are Phillip, Charles, Joseph and Anthony Pagano. Connie attended San Pedro High School while diligently working along side her parents in their popular Italian restaurant, "Luigi's." In 1953 she married Giovanni Mennella an American veteran from Ischia, an island off of the coast of Naples, Italy and nearby the island of Procida, the birthplace of Connie's father Luigi. After years of restaurant business, Connie became a realtor and after her husband Giovanni died, she moved to Rancho Mirage near Louis, Kathleen and nephew Joseph Pagano. In 2012 she relocated to Nevada City, CA where she spent her remaining life near her daughter and family. A lover of opera and the music of Barbra Streisand, Connie also enjoyed the horse races and had a passion for the lottery! Although many will miss her unique and colorful expression of life she still lives on in the hearts of her loved ones. God bless you Connie! A mass will be held at Mary Star of the Sea September 21 at 10:30 a.m. Please sign the guestbook at
