Adriana Christine Bandalin passed away surrounded by her adoring family at her home in Novato, CA, on August 8, 2022, at the age of 63. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Adriana is survived by her loving husband, Craig Steven Bandalin, their thriving children; Brittany Michaels Blaringhem, Vanessa Michaels, Lillon Anderson, and Jace Bandalin, her ten grandchildren, and her dog.
Adriana possessed many talents and held a lifelong love for sailing, camping, and traveling around the world. She was an incredible cook, enjoyed playing tennis, and cultivated a beautiful garden in her home that was a frequent setting for many gatherings with loved ones. She had a boisterous laugh that lit up the room and a fierce determination that shone through as a strength that everyone who loved her recognized. It was a resilient strength that was never so rigid that it couldn’t bend and that combination of fortitude and flexibility was as much a part of her soul as anything.
Adriana’s family is heartbroken over the loss of their cherished wife/mother/grandmother but take comfort in knowing she is loved beyond measure and lived a beautiful life. Shared memories with family and friends will bring peace through this impossible time.
A private service will be held. In lieu of flowers, Adriana’s family requests donations be made to the Susan G.
