Margaret Saggiani

Margaret "Maggie" Saggiani, daughter of George W. and Elzina (Gillespie) Dalessi, passed away peacefully at her home on August 22, 2012. She was born July 25, 1924, in Santa Maria, CA. After losing her mother at a young age, Margaret was blessed by the marriage of her father to Gabriella Travaglini and the addition of a brother, Mario (Lefty). Settling in Belmont Shore, she attended Woodrow Wilson High School. She met the love of her life, Louis Angelo Saggiani, at a military sponsored dance and they married on June 10, 1945. Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Lou; son, Mario, and daughter-in-law, Pamela. She is survived by her children, Lou (Christine), John (Kathy), and Elissa (John DiCarlo); nine grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and extended family. Margaret served a long career at the Employment Development Department on Eighth Street in San Pedro where she was known for her compassionate ear and personal generosity. She and Lou maintained a welcoming home to their family, friends, and neighbors on Rapallo Avenue. Margaret's ability to listen and to come to the aid of those in need were traits that she exhibited throughout her life. Though limited by her physical abilities, Margaret kept her finger on the pulse of all whom she loved by speed dial. Margaret leaves a legacy of true generosity for family to emulate. The family extends their gratitude to Margaret's caregiver of 7.5 years, Marilyn Sabado. They also wish to thank Dr. David Campisi, Trinity Care Hospice, and her other caregivers. Private family services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Little Sisters of the Poor, 2100 S. Western Avenue, San Pedro, CA 90732.
