Marianne Pardini passed away suddenly on April 3rd, 2015 at her home in Boonville California. Born May 25th, 1951 in Chicago Illinois, Marianne moved to the Bay Area with her parents and two brothers.
Marianne met her first husband, Tony Summit, on a blind date. They left the Bay Area and settled in Anderson Valley in 1974. They were blessed with the birth of twin daughters, Aimee and Sarah in 1976. In 1979, the birth of their son, Peter, made their family complete. Marianne was a wonderful and devoted Mother who always put her children first. They were her purpose in life. Her work with the community’s children was a labor of love and a source of great happiness to her. She touched many lives through her generous nature, ready smile, quick sense of humor and warm hugs. Marianne was also much loved for her willingness to spread joy through the music that was so much a part of who she was.
Later in life, Marianne extended her family by marrying Donald Pardini. They shared many happy memories and years together.
