Johanna “Jackie” DeTomasi of Millbrae died Aug. 1, 2014.

She was 90 years old.

She was the devoted wife to Felix DeTomasi for 71 years. She is survived by her daughters Marie Siddons and Alena Christopherson (Robert). She was grandmother to Dawn Weinzatl (Brian), Shawn Siddons, Gina and Tracy Christopherson; and great-grandmother to Jessica and Tiffany Weinzatl.

Jackie came from humble beginnings. She was born on May 29, 1924, in Oregon. At the age of 7, she moved to South San Francisco. She met and fell in love with Felix while attending South San Francisco High School. They married in 1942 and raised their family in Millbrae. She dedicated 48 years as cafeteria manager at Taylor Middle School.

“She truly appreciated the importance of family and friends. Her door was always open to welcome anyone wanting a delightful conversation and a home-cooked meal.”

Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life service 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8 at Chapel of the Highlands, 194 Millwood Drive at El Camino Real in Millbrae. The family would appreciate memorial contributions be given to Sutter Care at Home (www.SutterCareAtHome.org) or Muttville (www.Muttville.org) in her memory.
