Albina Mary Galetto
Albina Mary Galetto, 87, passed away peacefully on July 29, 2019, after a brief but valiant battle with a brain tumor.
She was born in Alameda to Bianca and Settimo Tesconi on June 25, 1932. She has lived in the same house on High Street her entire life — growing up as a child, making a home for her family and spending many tireless days and nights cooking in the same kitchen and always enjoying the company of her family, relatives and friends.
Albina was a devoted daughter, a beloved wife, an amazing mother and Nonna, cherished cousin and friend to many. She was a lifelong member of St. Phillip Neri Parish as well as Italian Catholic Federation Branch No. 10.
Albina was preceded in death earlier this year in April by her husband Mario and is survived by her children: Mark, Christine (Tom), Paul, John and Patrick (Lisa) and her grandchildren: Robert, Marie (Andrew), John, Nicholas, Michael and Sofia.
A recitation of the rosary and funeral mass will be held this Saturday, Aug. 10, at 10 a.m., with a viewing beginning at 9:30 a.m. at St. Philip Neri Church, 3100 Van Buren Ave. in Alameda. A reception will immediately follow the services. Private interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Oakland.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of choice.
