Lindsey Merendino

Lindsey Merendino, a 2003 graduate of Menlo-Atherton High School, died April 4 in San Luis Obispo, where she had been living. She celebrated her 25th birthday in March.

Ms. Merendino attended Las Lomitas and La Entrada elementary and junior high schools, and graduated cum laude from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, in 2007.

She had a passion for art, baking and music, according to her parents, Ellen Williams and Gari Merendino of Menlo Park. "She adored her dog, Nic, her horse, Quinn, and her friends and family," her parents wrote. "Consistent with her giving personality, she always put other first; she donated her organs and tissues to help many other people."

In addition to her parents, Ms. Merendino is survived by her brother Ted; grandmothers Betty and Jacqie; aunts Dawn, Carol, and Elaine; and an uncle, Marc.

The family requests that memorial donations be made to the local SPCA.
