Lela Virginia Dose (“Jennie”), was born in 1941, passed away on January 8, 2018.
Originally of Nashville, Tennessee, she moved with her family to California
at the age of 10, and spent much of her formative years in Santa Barbara.
She met her husband-to-be, Giuseppe F. Dose, in Paris, France and they
married a few years later in 1965, in his hometown in Italy.
In addition to her beloved husband, she is survived by her brother, Ben
Ridge; her daughters, Sara Tristano and Valentina Dimauro; her sons-in-law,
Larry Tristano and Davide Dimauro; and 4 cherished grandchildren,
Gianluca and Giovanni Dimauro, Sabrina and Luca Tristano.
She was a kind-hearted, generous person who easily charmed all those she
met with her warmth and humor. Her greatest pleasure in the past years
came from spending time with her grandchildren, who called her “Nini”.
Among her pastimes, she truly enjoyed watching the squirrels, birds, foxes,
and deer frolic in her backyard fields.
Family and friends are invited to attend a funeral mass on Friday, January
12 at 2 p.m. at St. James Catholic Church, 125 Sonoma Mountain Pkwy.,
Petaluma, California
In lieu of flowers, donations in her name are welcome at the Humane
Society of Sonoma County in Lela’s memory:
