Mae Cecilia (Herro) Tombazian 96.5 years young, passed away peacefully from natural causes on January 24th, 2018. Mae’s ultra-positive attitude touched the lives of countless friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers, students and befriended strangers.

Mae lost her beloved Gregory in 1972 and moved from the San Fernando Valley to Thousand Oaks where she served in the public school system as a teachers’ aid until her retirement.

Mae is survived by her son Charles (Scottsdale, AZ), Sheri (Broomfield, CO) her grandchildren, Alexandra, Roarke, Collin and Samantha and great-grandchildren Mason & Francesca.
