Cherished for her loving-kindness, Lorna Madge Micheletti of Los Altos Hills, is mourned for her passing on April 1, 2019. She was born in a tent on an Indian Reservation in Bennett, Utah on August 25, 1933. She is survived by her brothers Lyman Ballard of El Verano, California, Nathan Ballard of San Jose, and her six children (and spouses): David (Joanne), Diane (Clyde) Stevenson, Rob (Karen), John (Diane), Joane (Bob) Job, and Jim (Lisa). Sadly, her fourth son Paul died in a car accident in 1991. Lorna has 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Her marriage to Manlio (Mel) Micheletti in 1952 was blessed. Their 62 years of marriage were dedicated to family and friends, and later in life, much travel. In addition to tireless dedication to her family, she saw much of the world. Mel and Lorna moved into a little ranch home in Los Altos Hills in 1960 and spent many holidays and summers in their cabin in Twain Harte.
