Mrs. Doris E. Crociani, aged 91, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 29, 2022 at her home in South San Francisco.

Doris and Bruno raised their family in South San Francisco, where she became an active member of the local community. She enjoyed volunteering at All Souls Catholic Church and meeting with friends for a weekly pinochle game. She also had many happy memories of summers spent in Lake Tahoe.
Doris is survived by her four children, Steven, Dennis, Cathy, and Cynthia, and their spouses as well as her eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She will be remembered by family and friends for the love and joy she brought to their lives. She is preceded in death by her husband, Bruno, and her sister, June.
