Jeanette C. Quaglia passed away on 13 Sept. 2016 at CHOMP emergency. She was born in Sunburst, Montana in 1937 to Mr. Arnold and Gunhild Clara Larson. She grew up in Prosser, Washington and was the homecoming queen of Prosser High. Jeanette was the featured model in Dr. Don Parker's "Goddess Power". She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Johnny Quaglia, her sister Marlene Kelsey of Brentwood, her daughter Karen Dymke of Marina, granddaughters Kelly Dymke of Fresno and Dawn Dymke of Santa Cruz. She was very much in health and beauty. She was very conscious of her appearance and was always primping. Most people, including medical staff at CHOMP and Cypress Ridge complimented her on her flawless skin...for which she credits her Scandinavian heritage. Jeanette married the Love of Her Life Johnny Quaglia on her birthday, September 6, 1982. They loved dancing together. People would comment, "they've got to be professionals" which she loved to hear. From the graceful life she and her husband had, it gradually started to decline after she had a back operation. It took several years but eventually her body movements started to weaken. Most noticeable was her spine. It started to bend to the right which caused her to lose her balance and led to many falls; a broken wrist in three places, shattering the ball in her left shoulder. She fought through much of this but with ailments and pain management to control the pain, she had no energy left. "She was a fighter to the very end; always managing a smile and kind words to those around her. She's as beautiful now as she has been throughout our years together" said her husband. I want to thank all of the physicians, neurology, urology, primary care, eye center, spine center and psychologist of many years for all that they contributed to her well being. I truly love you Jeanette and know you are in a better place and we will be together again. You've been the Love, are the Love and will always be the only Love. Your Husband Always. A celebration of Jeanette's life will take place on Tuesday September 20, 2016 at 10 a.m. at Bayside Community Mortuary with Burial following at Garden of Memories in Salinas, Ca.
