Patti (“Gram”) Santini, 64, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. She was born on December 18, 1954, in Escalon, CA to Harold and Helen (Thompson) Polhemus. On June 16, 1974, she married her high school sweetheart, Bill Santini. They have two daughters, Trudi Santini of Escalon, and Amber Ciccarelli and her husband Joseph of Escalon. Patti’s greatest joy came from her three grandchildren, Ayden, Gianna, and Capri.
She is also survived by her brothers, Bill Polhemus of Oakhurst, and Ron Polhemus and his wife Clyta of Escalon. She graduated from Escalon High in 1973 and she was Miss Escalon in 1972. Many people knew her from the many years that she worked as the Director of the Stanislaus Dental Society. She loved being able to help all of the local dentists and their staff members in any way that she could. She took pride in her career.
Patti enjoyed camping at the beach with her husband, shopping with her girls, taking family vacations, cooking, meeting friends for lunch, watching Ayden play sports, watching Gianna cheer, and babysitting Capri. Patti was well known for the kindness that she showed others and for her beautiful smile. She was always willing to go above and beyond for people and she always put others first before herself. She was full of love and laughter.
A celebration of life will be held at Big Valley Grace Community Church in Modesto, CA on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 10 a.m.
