Sept. 2, 1970 — Nov. 17, 2010

Aimee Lani Bartolini died at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Sacramento, in her parents’ arms, on Nov. 17, 2010, at age 40. She had been living with her parents in Davis. Aimee was born on Sept. 2, 1970, in Honolulu, the only child of Rimini Borgonia Bartolini and Giovanni Leonardo Bartolini.

Aimee spent her childhood and early schooling years in Honolulu. In 1988, she graduated from Star of the Sea Catholic High School in Honolulu, with salutatorian honors. She attended the University of San Francisco, earning a bachelor’s degree there in 1993. Aimee lived in San Francisco for six years following her graduation from USF, before moving to Davis.

On June 27, 1994, Aimee got a second chance at life when she received part of her mother Rimini’s liver, in a living donor liver transplant procedure performed at the UC San Francisco Medical Center. She lived a full and independent life in good health for the next 16 years. In early November 2010, Aimee contracted pneumonia, and after a brief struggle, passed away from respiratory failure, on Nov. 17, 2010. Aimee is survived by her unconditionally loving parents, Rimini and Giovanni Bartolini.

Aimee worked as an accountant. Her most recent position, for almost seven years, was as an auditor at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks.

Aimee was a longtime passionate fan of Ricky Martin, the Puerto Rican pop singer.  She followed his career from his early days in 1983, when he was a member of the Puerto Rican singing group Menudo. Aimee attended many of Ricky Martin’s concerts and other events through the years. She developed numerous friendships with like-minded fans.

A funeral Mass for Aimee Lani Bartolini was held at St. James Catholic Church in Davis on Nov. 23, 2010. She was laid to rest at the Davis Cemetery.  Donations may be made in her behalf to one of her two favorite charities, Habitat for Humanity or Protect the Children, a project of the Ricky Martin Foundation for abused and exploited children.
