Dora Tusquellas Obituary
November 11, 1915 - November 18, 2015 Dora Tusquellas passed away peacefully on November 18, one week after her 100th birthday. She was the beloved wife of the late John Tusquellas, whose market Tusquellas Meats was a long time fixture in Los Angeles. Dora was mother to three children, Joany Lane, Bob Tusquellas and Mimi Crane. She was the beloved Nana to her 9 grandchildren: Jonathan, Stefanie, Annabel, Melanie, Kristina, Anna, Nicola, John and Carla and her 17 great grandchildren. Her life was characterized by beauty. More striking than her physical beauty was her deep inner beauty and love for her children and grandchildren. From a hand sewn Christmas tablecloth with a sequined tree for each family member to embroidered baby bibs, Dora shared her love of the exquisite with all, often signing her cards with "a kiss with every stitch." Dora is survived by her son, Bob (Kathy) and daughter, Mimi Crane, her grandchildren and their spouses and her great grandchildren. The funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 28, 2015, at 9:30 am at Risen Christ Chapel at Holy Cross Cemetery, 5835 Slauson Avenue, with interment to follow immediately. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica in Dora's memory or to a .
