Grace was born on March 8, 1927, in the Mission district of San Francisco. She received her bachelor's degree and teachers certification from San Jose State. Grace fell in love with a young man named Alfred. They were married on July 9, 1950 and bought their home in Visitacion Valley. Grace worked for the IRS for over 25 years until she retired. Grace was an avid sports fan, enjoying her summers in Clearlake but most of all loved going to Disneyland. Grace found the San Francisco fog "Poetic" and she loved volunteering at the SF airport behind the information desk until she was 90 years old. Her greatest blessing in her life was enjoying cherished time and memories with her family, friends and especially with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Grace will be greatly missed by all.

Condolence & Memory Journal

Although I knew her only for a few years,we had many nice conversations as I took her home in Visitation Valley on Thursdays. She was the gentlest,kind person I ever knew and was a good friend as well. We talked about her trips to Mexico and Vermont. She sent us photos of her grandchildren from far away and loved seeing them,grow,and graduate from college. She was proud of all her children.We shall miss her winning smile and good thoughts for all of us.May she rest in peace.

I had the pleasure of volunteering with Grace at the airport for many years . It was sad when she had to retire from my shift. I enjoyed a few visits with her when she was at Magnolia. We had great chats about her family aka kids and grandkids. I loved helping her figure out her cell phone! She was always loving and positive and smiling . May she Rest In Peace. You are missed dear Gracie.
I share with you a photo we took in July 2015

I love you and I will miss you. I'm so sorry for all the stupid things I've ever done. I'm again sorry I can't make it to your funeral service because I don't have the money to get there. Very expensive. I'm going to miss those 6 words you always said " what do you want for dinner." .I will think of you every day. Your son, Randy

Grace was, without question, one of the kindest, gentlest, and sweetest persons I have ever had the pleasure to know. Grace always gave me a small sum of money to take to the charity kitchens I worked at in Vietnam, and though small, it was enough to feed at least 300 people for a day. The poor and the staff and volunteers very much appreciated the gift given to them by this wonderful woman, Grace Cinti. I hope Grace knew the effect she had on these people, halfway around the world. That was Grace, though. She was very kind, generous, and so very thoughtful of others before herself. We will miss you, and we love you, Grace. Rest in peace.
