Dyanna Sue Wedgwood, 78, of Galt passed away on July 22, 2021. She was born March 17, 1943 to Casey and Bette Santos.
Dyanna had lived in Galt nearly 40 years and was a member of the Daughters of Isabella at St. Christopher’s, a volunteer for the Chamber of Commerce for many years and a volunteer for the Daughters of Italy.
She made phone calls for years and could recite most telephone numbers from the Galt telephone book. When younger, she was a hall dresser and a nurse’s aide.
She and her husband Chuck traveled on a motorcycle all over northern California. They also boated all over the Bay Area with their dog Sparky.
She had many pets over the years, 10 dogs and two cats. Her last dog passed away last year, and all of her pets are being buried with her.
Dyanna met her best friend Jeannette in 1952, and they spent a lot of time together over the years, a lot of Bingo games and shared two cruises. They took care of each other in many ways over the years.
Dyanna had bad lungs since childhood. She had a few trips to the hospital in the past few years. She came home for the last time in January. She had a good friend and wonderful nurse, Andrea, caring for her most of the time. She became more ill in July and Andrea and Jeannette spent a lot of time with her. As Dyanna passed away, a lot of nurses and friends visited and were present at the time.
Dyanna was the sister of Casey Santos Jr. and Darrell Santos, cousin of Vangie, Carol and Paula, stepparent to the late Charles Wedgwood Jr. and her late daughter Kimberly.
