October 4, 1930 ~ July 18, 2006
Nan Elizabeth Salisbury, a One-of-a-kind and Spectacular Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, passed away in her home on July 18th, 2006. She raised her 5 children in the South Bay, all of whom attended St Margaret Mary Grammar School and Bishop Montgomery High School. Nan's Catholic faith was very important to her and she was very active in the SMM parish community, including serving as President of the Altar Society and the St. Gerard Guild. After losing her husband, Leo, in 1977, she courageously went on alone to raise her two youngest daughters (ages 10 and 11) with stellar results. In addition to her 5 children, she is survived by 12 human and 2 Beagle/canine grandchildren and 1 great grandson, each of whom had a very special relationship with their "Nanma". After living almost 50 years in Torrance, she relocated in 2001 to Laguna Woods, CA. Although she liked to say she was "busy doing nothing", in reality she was busy showing up wherever her large group of family and friends needed her to be, adding excitement to the goings on! The Celebratory Mass will be held 6:00 p.m. at St. Lawrence Martyr Church, Monday, July 24, 2006, 1900 Prospect Ave., Redondo Beach, followed by a reception in the hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The American Diabetes Association.
