Melva Rosen
Melva Rosen of Diamond Springs, Calif., passed away on Jan. 31, 2011, having battled emphysema and Alzheimer’s disease for the last 10 years. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Dora Pipkin; loving husband of 61 years, Manuel Rosen; sisters, Ruth Michaud and her husband Alfred and Lorna Balhouse and her husband James; and son-in-law, Samuel McVeigh.

Originally from Denver, Colo., and Los Angeles, Calif., Melva was a compassionate and caring wife, mother and grandmother. She is survived by her four devoted children: son, Dean Wilson and his wife Florence of Granada Hills, Calif., daughter, Tris McVeigh of Diamond Springs, Calif., son, Nathaniel Rosen of Los Angeles, Calif., and her youngest daughter, Birdie Levine and her husband, William of Vestal, N.Y. She leaves six loving grandchildren: Ryan McVeigh and wife Shannon of Placerville, Calif., William McVeigh and his wife Jessica of Diamond Springs, Calif., David Wilson and his wife Michele of Lancaster, Calif., Florence and her husband Grant Heller of Frazier Park, Calif., Zacharie Levine of Miami, Fla., and Cassandra Levine of Cincinnati, Ohio. She also leaves behind seven great-grandchildren, who she loved and cherished: Andrew, Samuel, Daniel, Maisie, Dylan, Calie and William.

After 31 years working for Pacific Telephone in the Los Angeles area Melva retired to her favorite vocation, being the world’s greatest grandma. She first moved with Manny to Diamond Springs, Calif., to help raise Ryan and Willie and then moved to Vestal, N.Y., to care for Zach and Cassie.

Melva had many hobbies. She loved cooking, sewing, gardening, fishing and watching sports. She and Manny both had a passion for horse racing, visiting racetracks all over the country. She was a most giving person, always thinking of others before herself — a gift to all who knew her. She will be truly missed.

A memorial service to celebrate the lives of both Manny and Melva will begin at 12:30 p.m., on Friday, Feb. 4, at Pietro’s #2, 679 Merchant Street in Vacaville, Calif. Following this service a special graveside ceremony for both will be held at 2 p.m., at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road in Dixon, Calif. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011.
