Rosalind Britto entered peacefully into rest surrounded by friends and family in Pleasanton, CA on June 1, 2018. She was 70 years old.
Born in Monterey, CA on July 30, 1947, Rosalind was a retired Clerk with the Alameda County Superior Court, following 15 years of employment. She was a devoted mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend to all who knew her. When her three children were young, she tirelessly volunteered in their classrooms and with the PTA, where she met many life-long friends. A marvelous host, her home was the site of many memorable parties and family gatherings.
Rosalind was able to accomplish her dreams of living by the beach on the central coast of California; spending time in Italy, her ancestral homeland; and, spoiling her two granddaughters as much as she could. Her life was lived with integrity and in service to her family, friends and community. Rosalind was a courageous fighter, who, despite having overcome cancer once, fought valiantly when it resurfaced again two years ago.
Rosalind is survived by her loving husband and best friend of 47 years, Mark Britto; devoted daughters and son-in-law’s, Jennifer and Ken Pesavento of Lodi, Jamie and Nick Facciola of Oakland; devoted son and daughter-in-law, Jeremy Britto and Lia Aguirre of Park City, UT; brother, Robert Sedlmayr Jr. of Nevada, grandchildren, Abigail Britto and Hannah Britto; many nieces, nephews and loving extended family and cherished friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Yolie and Robert Sedlmayr; sister, Edith Staggs and niece, Dawn Marie Staggs.
Rosalind’s love for her family and life will be dearly missed.
Family and friends are invited to attend a celebration of Rosalind’s life at 12:00pm on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at Summerset at Brentwood I, 1675 Crispin Dr., Brentwood, CA 94513. Rosalind will be interned in a private family ceremony.
