to Toronto, Canada to do her pediatric residency at
Sick Kids Children's Hospital. She then came to
Seattle for fellowship training in pediatric
endocrinology at the University of Washington under
the tutelage of Dr. Kelly. She was associate
professor at Washington University Hospital and went
into private practice for more than 40 years in
Kirkland, being the elected physician for the
Aeritalia families coming to Seattle working for

loved Dr. Tattoni for her empathy, understanding and
ability to communicate directly with them. Dr.
Tattoni cared for several generations of families
who loved her for her dedication and motherly
concern for their well-being.

fondness for cats, enjoying Italian operas,
classical music, reading and the arts. She was an
avid listener and supporter of Classical King FM and
participated and supported the Seattle International
Film Festival, the Polish and Italian Film

current by attending medical conferences and taking
real pleasure in travelling and experiencing
different cultures and foods with her husband Roman.
