Barbara Grisanti-Hernandez

June 8, 1930 — April 13, 2024

Whittier, California

Barbara Jean Grisanti-Hernandez, was born in Los Angeles, California on June 8, 1930.  She passed away, peacefully with her sons, Peter and Paul by her side, on April 13, 2024. A resident of Monterey Park for over 60 years, she spent the last 3 years in Whittier.  Mom was a person of deep faith and fought hard to keep her sons in Seventh-Day Adventist schools, even when dollars were tight.  Her one goal was to see her children in God's Kingdom.  

Mom raised the 3 of us and also worked for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Committee and for The Metropolitan Water District, where she retired.  

She loved anything which had to do with family, friends and her church. She enjoyed skiing, Disneyland, travel and her very close circle of friends.  We should also mention Macy's!  Mom is survived by her 3 sons, 3 grandchildren and 3 (1/2 ... Another on the way) great grandchildren.  

A funeral is scheduled for May 2, 2024 at 9:30am at Forest Lawn in Glendale, California.  Wee Kirk o'The Heather Chapel.  Mom is preceded by her husband Alfredo Rios Hernandez.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.” 

-Psalm 23
