Eleanor Avenatti Death – The family claims that Avenatti passed away during the famous snowstorm that imprisoned people in the San Bernardino Mountains. According to her family, she passed away in her home by alone, without phone or power, and with little to eat. The family of 93-year-old Eleanor “Dolly” Avenatti lamented the loss of their matriarch while they awaited information regarding her death. They described her as a fiercely independent and charitable lady. Ron Fosson, Dolly’s nephew, said of her, “She lived the life she wanted to live. She still roamed the neighborhood every day. Fosson reported that she constantly responded, “A Winter Wonderland!” when he contacted her each day leading up to the severe snow. He said that because she had dementia and was living alone, she was unaware of the destruction occurring in the nearby villages.

He learned that his aunt’s home had lost heat and power while he was out of state and began calling the San Bernardino County Storm Hotline every day to begging someone to come and save his aunt. It took days before anybody could get close to Avenatti’s house because of the mountains of snow and the numerous rescue operations that were already under place. Eventually, her neighbor gained access and discovered her dead inside. Fosson and his wife stated, “We obtained the coroner’s report, and it said natural causes, because they truly don’t know what happened. “We suspect it was because of the prolonged exposure to the cold.” She will be remembered as a strong-willed, fiercely independent woman who cherished camping, exploring, and meeting new friends. Her dying wish was to pass away at her house.
Fosson said, “I guess I can tell you she’s safely home now. The strong storm that dumped an unprecedented amount of snow on the region, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, caused at least one person to perish in an automobile accident. According to the department, 11 more persons passed away during the storm, but their deaths were not storm-related because they were already receiving medical attention. It is unknown if Avenatti is included in the Sheriff’s statistics, but according to her family, memory loss was the only illness she had. The family claimed that they attempted to contact the County’s Office of Emergency Services to check on her and provide rescue assistance if necessary, but no one ever showed up.
The devastating scenario in the San Bernardino mountains left the locals still in shock and spurred an emergency reaction from a number of organizations, including the state’s national guard and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. While it appeared that the local government was having difficulty rescuing those trapped in the snow, it now seems that the military, state government, and volunteer resources have all contributed to the success of the relief efforts. 90% of the area’s roads, with 100% of them cleared in some places, had been cleaned of the several feet of snow, according to the county. But after being cut off for weeks, mountain dwellers intervened on their own to assist their neighbors.Christopher Woodbridge, a resident of Crestline, claimed that he had been receiving more texts than he could count.
Zachary Pardee, a resident of Valley of Enchantment, continued, “There are about 150 calls up at Cedarpines Park. Both of them are among the unsung heroes of this historic snowfall, making their neighbors feel a little safer in times of need. Many people currently don’t feel safe, according to Pardee. The two have been working up to 18 hours a day to assist where they can since renting a loader last week. They have completed a plethora of duties, including “Moving everybody’s berms, digging cars out, clearing roads, clearing paths, helping people get out of their homes,” according to Woodbridge. The storm’s damage has become more obvious, especially in Crestline, as the snow melts and workmen clear the roadways. Because of the weight of the snow and the falling trees, a few companies had significant holes in their roofs. Numerous locals reported witnessing an increase in aid this week. It’s difficult since there is nowhere to dump the snow, but I believe the county is doing the best it can, Pardee said.
