Rosado, Mary web picApr 1924 ~ Jan 2014

After an extended struggle with dementia, our beloved mother, Mary Catala Rosado, passed away in Merced, CA. Mary was born in Waialua, Hawaii. She was raised on a sugar plantation by her grandmother who died when our Mom was eleven years old. Life was tough for her until she met and married our father Joseph Rosado in December of 1941. (The Second World War had just begun and Mary married Joseph on Christmas Day.)

Our Mom had 4 children. When we were little she started attending church and always remained an active church attendee with her husband, all her children and/or grandchildren. She lived her life in a strong belief of the love and grace of God.

Mary was predeceased by her husband Joseph, her parents, daughter Geraldine, son Dennis, grandsons Clay and Ryan, and her eight siblings. She is survived by her daughters Myra Jardine of CA, Charlotte Castleberry of TN, Dawn Mitchell of OK, 6 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and 3 great, great-grandchildren.

Her light on earth has dimmed, but heaven is brighter as she has joined Joseph, the true love of her life.

Visitation will be at 9 am on Wed, Jan 8th at Allen Mortuary. Funeral Service will follow at 10 am. A Reception will be held after the funeral service in the Allen Event Center. Burial will follow the reception at Turlock Memorial Park.
