March 2, 1922 — Feb. 19, 2014

Violet Mello Koszalka passed away on Feb. 19, 2014, in Roseville, Calif., at the age of 91. Born in Freeport, Calif., to Antone and Maria Mello on March 2, 1922, she grew up in the Freeport area as one of 10 children. She graduated from Clarksburg High School and then moved to Sacramento, where she met her future husband, Emanuel Koszalka. The two were married in 1946 and settled in Carmichael, where they started a family. The couple had five children, Pamela, Patricia, Jayne, Michael and Peter, between 1947 and 1961. They moved to Pollock Pines in 1961.

Violet was a long-time employee of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, serving most of her time as supervisor in the records department. Following Emanuel’s passing in 1992, she moved to Placerville, where she remained for the past 21 years. She was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grand mother. She always put the needs of others before her own and will be remembered for her kindness and humility. She was a faithful member of the Catholic Church for her entire life.

Violet is survived by all five of her children; a son-in-law; a daughter-in-law; 13 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; two sisters-in-law; and many nieces, nephews and their families.

All are welcome to her memorial service on Monday, March 3, at St. Patrick Church, 3109 Sacramento Street in Placerville. A rosary service begins at 10:30 a.m., followed by mass at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers please send donations to St. Patrick Ladies Society, St. Patrick Catholic Church, 3109 Sacramento Street, Placerville, CA 95667.
