Cornelia (better known as Connie) Pineda passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on the morning of August 27, 2021 at her home in Walnut Creek surrounded by her family. A bright light in the lives of many she was considered a treasured friend and neighbor. Always ready to lend a hand or be of service, she enjoyed volunteering her time between John Muir Hospital and The Walnut Creek Homeless Shelter. She was most passionate about seeing the world and was ready with passport in hand if the travel opportunity struck. Cornelia will be missed terribly but remembered in every beautiful garden as she had the gift of a green thumb and could turn any seed into bloom. She is survived by her beloved family, husband Rick Pineda, daughter Christine and son in-law Karl, son Craig and daughter in-law Joey, grandchildren Sean and Tianna, brother James and sister in-law Francis, and her cousin/travel partner Denise.
