The vibrant and fun-loving Lois Catherine Saccone was born to Bernard and Annette Saccone on July 5, 1933. She returned to the Lord on November 10, 2016. Lois loved her family, her friends and life in general. She spent the first half of her life in San Francisco, running in and out of her family’s two neighborhood markets. Lois retired to Sandpoint, Idaho after a long and successful career in banking and returned to Sonoma County to live out her final chapter. In addition to being a source of infectious, positive energy, Lois was a pillar of strength. This is evidenced by a girlhood spent roller skating down San Francisco’s vertical hills with her sister, Clare (the girls were known to use brick walls to stop themselves at the bottom of the hill), and surviving being run over by a car at the age of four. The replacement of virtually every joint in her body allowed her to boast that she was a 50% bionic woman. Lois was a celebrated cook and her home was a social hub. She made the best crab cioppino on the west coast, and was known to let crabs scuttle around the kitchen until they were added to the pot. Friends can regale you with memories of her famous pig roast, and the family will feel lost without her table laden with platters of homemade food, fresh-baked bread and piles of parmesan cheese. We’ll miss Lois’s quick wit, ready laugh, and ability to make even the smallest outing feel like an extra-special event. She leaves behind a loving and bereaved circle of devoted family and friends. Lois is survived by her siblings, Fred (Sunshine), Clare (Vern); children, Vicki (Tracy), Kenny (Susie) and Johnny (Carrie); five nieces, three nephews, grandchildren, Nicky, Tad, Zacky, Alex, Mercedes, Gabi, Luke and Gracie; and great-grandchildren, Tay, Julian, Hudson and Vivian. A celebration in honor of Lois’s life will take place at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, November 19, 2016, at Crosspoint Community Church, 1577 Guerneville Rd, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County or Crosspoint Community Church.
