Diana Bradley

From Jan 7, 1939 to Jan 14, 2024 Diana Jean Bradley lived a remarkable life.


It began with her parents, Beulah and Leonard Richardson, and younger brother Leonard, in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. She shared many adventures with her friends at the Hamlin School, Lowell High School and UC Berkeley. She was a well-known artist, exhibiting her work locally and internationally, teaching art classes, and for forty years producing a beloved calendar that featured her watercolors. An avid tennis player, she was known for her killer drop shot and took mischievous pride in her ability to spin the ball in directions her opponents least expected. She lived her life with a ferocious independence, insatiable curiosity, and infinite love and kindness. Generous to a fault, she dedicated countless hours to community projects and opened her home to those in need.


She is survived by her two daughters (Dana and Adrian), five grandchildren (Mathew, Emma, Samantha, Harper and Chloe), and two great-granddaughters (Lital and Dani).


A memorial and celebration of her life is May 18, 2024, from 2-4pm at the Belvedere Community Center 450 San Rafael Ave. in Belvedere.
