Josephine Nieri

San Francisco Chronicle (Sunday) - - LIFE TRIBUTES -

Josephine Nieri, nee Menta, passed away qui­etly in San Fran­cisco on Novem­ber 20th. “Jo” was born there on Jan­uary 16, 1930 to Leo and Mil­lie Menta, both Ital­ian im­mi­grants. She is pre-de­ceased by her older sis­ter Lor­raine and younger brother, Leo Menta.

Jo was mar­ried to Lawrence Paul Nieri from 1950 un­til his death in 2001. Their son is Michael Nieri, of San Fran­cisco. His chil­dren are An­thony, Dante and Gia, whose mother Janet Payne re­mained close to Josephine. Michael is now mar­ried to Lind­say Nieri, and step­fa­ther to Mia. Jo’s daugh­ter Michele lives in Los An­ge­les with her hus­band, John Richards, whose chil­dren are John, Na­talie and Carolyn. All the chil­dren will miss “Gramma Jo,” as will her sis­ter-in-law, Bev­erly Rull­hausen, of San Fran­cisco and her many friends in the Bay Area.

Memo­rial ser­vice will be in the chapel at the Ital­ian Ceme­tery, 540 F St. Colma at 11:00 a.m. on Fri­day, Dec 7. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions to alexan­dri­a­house. org, hous­ing for women would be ap­pre­ci­ated.
