Ann Pinto, Centenarian
May 14, 2017
Key to the City Recipient
Vice Mayor Steve Detrick presented Ann Pinto with a Key to the City at her 100th birthday party on May 14, 2017, which also happened to be Mother's Day. She had a large birthday celebration at her daughter, Jean Sadler's home with over 75 family and friends to celebrate with this amazing lady.
Ann was part of a family that included 11 brothers and sisters and was born and raised in Sacramento. She lived the majority of her life in Sacramento and moved to Elk Grove in 1995 to be closer to her daughter, Jean.
Jean Sadler Wrote This About Her Mother:
My mom has lived a very full life centered around her family. She married my dad, Edward Comer in 1937 and they raised 2 daughters. Her family grew to include 4 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren with her first great great grandchild due in July. She also has numerous nieces and nephews. A few years after her husband died, she married Julio Pinto and acquired a new family as well. They enjoyed almost 25 years together.
My mom worked for the California Almond Growers and also DMV where she retired after 20 years. She has enjoyed traveling (cruising), gardening, playing pinochle with friends and spending time with her family whom she loved very much. She also looks forward to going to Elk Grove Regional Park every year to watch the Strauss Festival, which she loves.
We had a family reunion at Elk Grove Park in 2007, which was attended by around 200 people.
Our family is so blessed to have had our mom and grandmother in our lives for so many years and to watch all of her grandchildren grow up and have children of their own.
It's been quite a ride for her, and the ride continues!
