Monnie Lou Santin

Monnie Lou Santin, 76, loving wife, mother and Nonnie, passed away on September 17th, 2022.

Monnie was born in Glendale, California on January 11, 1946 to William Pleasant Huggins Jr. and Alice Junne Huggins (Rougeot). She graduated from El Camino High School in 1964.  On January 15, 1966, Monnie married her sweetheart, Robert Santin, at Chapel of the Bells in Reno, Nevada.  Monnie worked at Skycrest Elementary School as an instructional assistant for over 20 years.

She treasured her children and she embraced and cherished every moment with them.  She especially loved her role as Nonnie.

Monnie found much joy in entertaining family and friends.  She was a very social person who loved to laugh and have fun.  She enjoyed her time playing bunco with friends and she never wanted to pass up a Happy Hour.  Many of her good times were spent with Bob on the golf course surrounded by the friends she met through Sierra View Country Club. She even hit a hole in one twice!

She also loved to travel.  Monterey, Hawaii, and of course Italy, were the favorites.  The Italy trip was so memorable for Bob and Monnie, it was talked about for years and years afterwards.

Monnie is survived by her husband, Robert Santin; her daughter, Stacy Ladd (Mark) and son, Brant Santin (Christy); and her grandchildren, Hayden Santin, Taylor Santin and Kyle Santin.
