July 17, 1978 - Oc­to­ber 19, 2018

It is with ex­treme sad­ness that we an­nounce the sud­den and un­ex­pected pass­ing of our daugh­ter, Jen­nifer Ann D’Am­bro­sio, 40 yrs. She died of nat­u­ral causes while va­ca­tion­ing in Cabo San Lucas. Jen­nifer was born in Liver­more, Cal­i­for­nia to Robert and Di­ane D’Am­bro­sio- (Yrib­ar­ren). She was raised in the Danville area where she at­tended Di­ablo Val­ley Col­lege, San Fran­cisco State and Do­mini­can Col­lege. She loved school and the chal­lenge of aca­demics, earn­ing her two MASTERS de­grees. She was in the process of get­ting her “dream job”. Jen­nifer was known for her quick wit, sense of hu­mor, in­fec­tious smile and her very kind and com­pas­sion­ate spirit. She would light up a room! Jen­nifer loved trav­el­ing and gourmet food, al­though she couldn’t cook. She was lucky when she met the man she fell in love with, Nick Opitz, who hap­pened to be a “chef”. He spoiled her with his cook­ing.

Jen­nifer spent a lot of time liv­ing with her French grand­par­ents, Ernes­tine and Noel Peti­tou,(who pre­ceded in death). With their help she thrived into learn­ing about her French cul­ture and trav­els to Europe.

She es­pe­cially loved her French side of the fam­ily, her Aunt, Jean (Olivia) Har­ris-John­son, Aunt Claudie (Jean) Chourre and Aunt Ge­or­gette Fan­felle. The time spent with her cousins, Na­dine (Rob ,Do­minique) Springett, Vi­viane (Don, Jon, Mad­die) Ago, Joel (Jackie, Ha­ley, Kayla, Christo­pher) Fan­felle, Yves (Dawn, Chris­tian) Fan­felle. Pre­de­ceased Chris­tine (Jim) McNamee.

Jen­nifer was lucky to be guided in life by sev­eral step­par­ents and step­broth­ers. Jan (Micheal) D’Am­bro­sio, Teresa D’Am­bro­sio (Annabelle Hen­der­son), Eu­gene (Micheal) Layes and James Yrib­ar­ren (who pre­ceded her in death). Along with her new friend, Os­car Me­d­ina.

Jen­nifer had so many amaz­ing friends in her life­time, too many to men­tion.

On Satur­day, Novem­ber 10th at 10am there will be a view­ing at Christ the King Church in Pleas­ant Hill, CA. This will be fol­lowed by a Mass at 10:30am and then a re­cep­tion. Ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion at www.tra­di­tion­care.com
