It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmothe­r, Great Grandmothe­r & friend to many, Tove Farrara. She was born in Denmark on May 20, 1927. She migrated to the US as an infant and would reside in South Dakota, then eventually move to Tillamook, Oregon where she would attend school. She then attended art school in Los Angeles. She married Tony Farrara on November 21, 1948 and lived in Los Angeles until moving to Chico in 1952. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Tony, (age 98), of 73 years, on December 20, 2021.

Together Tony & Tove ran their own businesses. Tony with a welding & ornamental iron shop “The Wrought Iron Shoppe” and later Tove opened their own lingerie store called “Nyteez” on Nord Ave back in 1979, ’til the early 90’s. Tony & Tove loved spending their time with their families as they grew up whether it was on Lake Shasta or being involved in whatever their kids were interested in. Their love for their family was deep and it showed until the end when 4 generation­s of family came to visit in both their final days ranging from Tove’s Sister, to great grandchild­ren & grandchild­ren, and their 4 grown children. As per their request, there will be no funeral or celebratio­n of life. They wanted everyone to be blessed that they were able to both live such long & loving lives and to remember all the special times that they shared with everyone.
