Rosemary Mancha passed away at her home on June 8, 2019. She was 91.
Born in Virginia, one of nine children, she moved to Watsonville where she raised her family. Rosemary enjoyed cooking, swing dancing, and making everyone laugh. Even at 91, she was a very independent woman. She enjoyed her home and loved her family dearly.
Rosemary is survived by her son, Bob (Denise) Mancha; daughter, Sue (Kerry) Otis; four grandchildren, Vanessa Mancha, Curtis Mancha, Kelly Topinka, and Meghan Smith; and her five great-grandchildren, Isabella Mancha, Joseph Fugate, Zane Daley, Ashlynn and Easton Topinka.
A graveside service will be held on Monday, July 8, 2019, at 2 p.m. at Valley Public Cemetery, 2445 East Lake Ave., Watsonville. Because they were special angels to our family when we needed them, donations to Hospice of Santa Cruz County are preferred. Mehl’s Colonial Chapel has been entrusted with the arrangements.
