My Mom – A Brief Mother’s Day Tribute

My mom grew up in San Francisco – Faxon Avenue I believe.  Her parents moved to Marin County when Mom and my Aunt attended Dominican College in San Rafael.  Some time later, after college, a Stanford MBA, and the Navy Waves in WWII, when it was time for the newlyweds to buy their first home in the 50’s, Mom and Dad settled in Marin also.  While Dad went off to work in San Francisco, Mom raised four children and started her own business from home.  Dad passed away almost 20 years ago, and Mom passed peacefully last year, January 1, 2011, after a full life of passion for her family, her education, her work and her volunteer activities.  Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and ALL of my Mom readers.

Notice the blue striped shirt!  Summer 2009 at a family pool party.

We took this picture because we were to tickled with our matching shirts.  We are in front of my my Aunt’s home in Marin County around 1990.
