Ida Rapozo entered peacefully into rest on May 8, 2019. She was 94 years old.
Born December 23, 1924 in Kenwood, California to parents Pietro Bettiga and Katie Penoli, Ida was known as Mum or Nana to her loving family. She graduated from Santa Rosa High School and worked as a housewife all her life. She was a member of many clubs and organizations: GAA, YLI, James Madison PTA, and ICF. She loved bowling, golf, reading, knitting, and gardening – but most of all she loved shopping and dancing!
Ida is survived by her daughter Pamela (Jack) Beatson; grandchildren Tamara (Christopher) Gray, Todd (Kristina) Burnham, and Deanna Beatson Richards; great grandchildren Justin (Mandy) Richards, Ahriaana Burnham, Isabella Burnham, Samantha Richards, and Madison Gray; and great great grandson Charlie Richards. Ida was preceded in death by her loving husband of 67 years, Melvin (Jimmie) Rapozo. She will be greatly missed.
