Joanne Grazioli Bracco
April 20, 2013, 05:00 AM

Joanne Grazioli Bracco was born in San Francisco on June 3, 1948.

Joanne attended Lone Mountain, majoring in drama. Marriage to Michael Bracco in 1971 and the birth of her daughters Katharine and Caroline necessitated a move to the Peninsula where she joined the staff of Peninsula Parent. There she launched her syndicated column, Cinemascoop, which coupled her love of film with writing.

In between work and rounds of golf, she was always on the move. With the birth of her first grandchild, Joanne decided to create her own parenting newspaper, quickly making Parenting on the Peninsula a must for Bay Area parents. When Joanne was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2010, she was forced to slow down but was off gallivanting around the globe as soon as she could.

Sadly, Joanne suffered a stroke this past December and succumbed to cardiac failure on March 17. Joanne clearly had other more fascinating places to explore. She is survived by her daughters, Katie Comfort and Caroline Bracco; her grandchildren Ellie, Anderson and Phoebe Comfort; her brother Paul Grazioli and her publication, Parenting on the Peninsula.

A celebration of life will be held at Green Hills Country Club April 28.
