Lola Rose Bobba, née Roggi was born on April 11, 1930 in San Francisco, to her parents Guido and Albertina Roggi, née Santucci. Guido, a former resident of Capannori, Lucca, Italy, came to America in 1914. Albertina arrived around 1920.

She was the first Santucci grandchild, and Lola considered herself the doyenne of the sprawling Santucci family, being cherished by the entire family and cherishing them as well. She lived in San Francisco her first 13 years, then moved to Livermore. Little did she know her father was one of the Bay Area’s largest producers of brandy during prohibition. The family stills were producing 5,000 gallons per day during their peak production. Maybe it was this exposure to alcohol that formed her into a lifelong teetotaler.
