Obituary

Elvira Joan Mazzei died peacefully on July 13, 2019 with her family near. She was born December 1, 1921, in Peaio, Italy, immigrated at 7 years old to McCloud, California and lived her married life in San Francisco and San Jose, California. She was the consummate housewife with her love of children combined with impressive cooking and sewing skills. With children grown she used her latent accounting talent at several companies in San Jose, California. She was a sacristan at the O’Connor Hospital chapel and attended Mass frequently there and at the Santa Clara Mission. She is survived by her husband of 71 years, Joseph Mazzei, sons Bruce Mazzei and Randall Mazzei, daughters Maria (Mazzei) Blednyh and Anna Mazzei, 6 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
