Karen J. Magliocco Obituary
Karen J. Magliocco Died peacefully on February 13, 2014 with friends and family surrounding her. She was the widow of Melvin T. Magliocco and she is survived by her children, Dennis, David, Karmela and Mario, daughters-in-law, Nozomi and Mai, son-in-law, Greg, grandchildren, Katharine, Lauren, Olivia, Anthony and Marco, her sisters, Edna and Deanna, nine nieces and nephews, eight grandnieces and grandnephews, and many close friends. Karen was born on April 5, 1941 in Sidney, NE to George and Amelia Folster. She was the sixth of seven children. She moved to San Francisco at the age of 20. She was extremely bright and worked hard her entire life. She married Melvin Magliocco on January 11, 1969. Soon after, Melvin and Karen adopted five-year-old twins, Dennis and David, from Taiwan, and later welcomed daughter Karmela and son Mario. They lived in a small bungalow in the Gerstle Park area of San Rafael, where they welcomed many for legendary meals around their dinner table. Karen will best be remembered for her unconditional love and support for her family and her positive disposition. She was involved in every aspect of her children's lives, including volunteering in their classrooms, PTA, Children's Theater and sport teams. She exposed her kids to the arts and supported all of their interests. She was the model of good parenting. She extended this same care and devotion to her grandchildren. She cherished her time watching them play sports, attending school events, playing board games and going to movies with them. For this, she will be missed immeasurably. In her spare time she enjoyed reading, movies, lunch and coffee with friends and playing bocce. She was a member of the Buon Amici bocce team for almost 20 years! A celebration of her life will be held at the home of Karmela and Greg Cleary on Saturday, April 5th from 1-5pm.
