Born to Pete and Helen (Scott) Pacchetti on Aug. 24, 1935, in Monterrey, Calif. She died peacefully in her sleep on Oct. 15, 2012 after fighting a long battle with cancer.
After retiring from the Santa Clara County Assessor’s Office after more than 20 years of service, she was able to devote herself to her children and grandchildren, plus indulge her love of bingo.  
She is survived by her children, Surby, Cindy and Sam Guardino; five grandchildren, Cheraylyn Velazquez, Wayne Willyard, Ryan Bergeron, Amber Mazzella, Kurina Cota; six great-grandchildren, Donte, Lillianna, Gianna, Annabelle, Javen, Aryanna; sisters Betty Chaix, Lanita Moyer, Karen Johnston; brother, Pete Pacchetti, and many nieces and nephews.

Norita’s fearless zest for life, her quick wit and infectious laughter will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
The graveside service will be on Monday, Oct. 22, at 1 p.m. All family and friends are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation will be greatly appreciated.
