Lucy D'Antuono

Lucy D'Antuono passed away in Seattle this Fall after a long and fruitful life.

Her son Michael is a long time friend from my undergraduate days at the University of Washington. Mke and his wife Susan live in Pasadena now while Lucy's daughter, Diana, still lives in Seattle.

On Tuesday, we gathered with her friends and family at the Il Fornaio Restaurant in Pasadena to rekindle the memories of her remarkable life.

Lucy always struck me as a very elegant, reserved and graceful woman with equal streaks of strength and gentleness. She was a very positive person whose character was passed on to her children.

Lucy's favorite time of the year was Thanksgiving which gave her a chance to visit with family and friends while indulging her passion for good food.

Just a wonderful lady. . .

Daughter Diana is third from the left while son Michael is third from the right next to his wife Susan.


70 years old, has worked with Michael for years, is an extremely smooth-talker with a way with the ladies and has a VERY cool first name to boot.

Gentlemen, pay attention to this man and his moves!

This is our University of Washington group with whom we celebrate Valentine's Day every year.
