Judy Loscito Bolander, BHS 1964
June 29, 1945 - October 11, 2006
Resided in Salinas, CA
Today we celebrate the life of Judy Bolander, who was called to rest on Oct. 11, 2006 in Santa Clara. She was born on June 29, 1945 in Los Angeles to John and Josephine Loscito. She graduated from Burbank High School in 1964. In school, she loved boys more than Math. She remained close with all of her school chums. To this day, they still met two or three times a year, and keep in constant contact by e-mail or the Burbank Loop. She was married in 1965, and then moved to Monterey County in 1973, where she has resided in Salinas. She raised her daughter, Christa Eve, as a single mother. Judy was devoted to her daughter and grandson, Connor. She has been a customer service Representative at Weyerhaeuser Paper Company for the past 20 years. Judy was somewhat a local legend at Christmas time, starting in November with a wild cookie party for all of her Salinas pals and ending with spectacular Christmas open house. If anyone was ever lucky enough to attend, they would find every inch of her three bedroom house, top to bottom with a Victorian Christmas. Every nook and cranny filled with her love of the Holiday Spirit. Whether it was the room designated for her 200 plus Santa's, or the fabulous feast that awaited all her guests, lasting into the wee hours of the night. Her outgoing warm Italian heart would welcome anyone, anytime. Her friends brought her great joy. Judy is survived by her daughter, Christa Eve Gempler, who now resides in Idaho with her husband Chris and son, Connor, age 4. Her Mother, Josephine Loscito of Salinas, whom she shared special Friday night dinners. Her sister Janet and husband Dr. Gary Simmons, nephew John and
nieces Jennifer, and Sue. Memorial service is to be held at First Presbyterian Church located at 830 Padre Dr. Salinas, CA on Thursday Oct. 19, 2006 at 11:00 a.m. Reception immediately following funeral services. Please come celebrate Judy's beautiful life. If you think you have lost your best friend, you have.
