Tribute & Message From The Family

Paula Patricia Venturino (Siebecker) died peacefully on April 18 at her home in Burlingame, leaving her loving husband of 63 years, Marco Francis Venturino, and a large and loving family. She was two months shy of her 93rd birthday.
Pat, as she was known to friends and family, was both a product of her generation and a woman decades ahead of her time. Born in San Francisco, June the 22nd, 1926, she grew up in San Francisco, The Potrero District, the youngest of four sisters, during the height of the Great Depression. From that experience, she lived her life to waste nothing, embrace cultural diversity, live fully and fearlessly, and appreciate the small joys of everyday life.
Pat married Marco in 1956. Marco supported and loved Pat's two kids as his own, and together they had four more, raising six children together in the same home on Drake Avenue in Burlingame. She and her devoted Marco remained married and in love for 63 amazing years!
Pat shared her passion for travel, adventure, diverse culture and delicious food and wine with her friends and family. Pat introduced Marco to the wonders of the Sierras and ski vacations at the Alpineer Club Lodge and Sugar Bowl were an annual family event.
Pat is survived by Marco and six children, their spouses, children and grandchildren.
Virginia and Gary Nagle
George and Shauna Venturino
Jim Venturino and Heike Kilian
Michael Venturino
John and Janet Venturino
Maria Venturino and Craig Thomas
Sixteen grandchildren and 6 great grand children
When we count the number of immediate family, it is close to 40!
Services will be held in Mid-August, the exact date and location is still pending.
Pat in her later years suffered from dementia. In lieu of flowers, please support research to find a cure for this incredibly debilitating disease.
Thank you for all of your kind words and prayers!

Condolence & Memory Journal

I love you and miss you mom. And now dad has come to be with you. You were our anchors and our rudders. You steered us gently with a calm and loving hand and when the time was right you let go and allowed us the freedom to explore this wonderful baffling world on our own, for better and occasionally for worse. The best tribute we can give is to lead something close to the exemplary lives you and dad led. I pray now that the two of you are together again with all our many loved ones who left the Earthly confines of the soul before you.

We didn't know Paula but do know what a wonderful family she raised. The Venturino's are a loving and caring bunch and we are proud to call them our friends. I believe the best tribute you can give your mother is to be happy and live life to the fullest.

Pat was a beautiful person and I am grateful that I got to know her. I remember the first time I met her, she was looking after a 2 week old Gary William who had chicken pox. She introduced herself from a window and we had a great conversation. She was always friendly and great to be around.
