Obituary for Denelda Jean Lavagnino

Denelda (Denne) Jean Lavagnino 77, died peacefully at her home in Loomis CA on September 15, 2017. Denne was born April 24, 1940, in Genoa, Nevada. Denne is survived by her husband Richard Lavagnino, daughters Tina Schroeder, Kristi Schroeder and wife Connie Latham, Julie Lavagnino, Theresa Williams and husband Tim, grand-children JaDean and Zachary Latham, and numerous nieces and nephews. Denne was the only child of Ernestine and George Scossa, and upon her father’s death early in her life, her mother remarried James Dunlap. Together they raised an outstanding woman. Denne has two step sisters, Janet and Judy, and half- brother John.

Denne graduated from Folsom High School in 1958 and Sacramento City College with a nursing degree several years later. Denne worked as a Registered Nurse with Kaiser for 42 years. She was very active in the California Nurses Association serving as president for a time. She was a strong advocate for patients’ rights and care. Dear to her heart was animal welfare issues and causes, and donated often to animal shelters in the Sacramento area.

Denne and husband Richard were members of the River City Corvette club for 25 years, and traveled often in their motor home. The family ranch in South Lake Tahoe was her special place where she loved to spend time at. She had very fond memories that she talked about often.

One of Denne’s highest priorities was her family and friends. She had a very kind spirt, giving heart, and was blessed with a wonderful sense of humor. She always had room in her heart for more friends and family.

In lieu of flower bouquets, the family would prefer donations to purchase crepe myrtle trees to be planted in her memory at her home. Donations in Denne’s name can also be made to the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, CA. 2127 Front Street, Sacramento CA 95818, 916-808-7387.

Funeral services will be held for family and friends on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at Millers Funeral Home in Folsom Ca at 11:00 am. 507 Scott Street, Folsom, Ca 95630. 916-985-2295.
