Barbara Ann Butkovich
2/16/1931 - 3/6/2013

Born Barbara Ann Davis on February 16, 1931 in Newcastle, Calif., she passed peacefully on March 6, 2013.
Barbara attended school in Rocklin and Roseville, and was a proud graduate of Roseville High, Class of '48. She was married in 1949 to Joseph Butkovich until his passing in 1981. She was also preceeded in death by her parents, Ella and Alfred; her six siblings; and her long time companion, Tony Derrico who passed in 2010.
Retired from the State of California Controllers Office, she spent the rest of her years enjoying and loving her home , her friends, and most of all her family. Holidays were a special time and she took great joy and pride in decorating for every season.
She is survived by her daughter, Karen Switzer and grandson, Zachary Switzer, who will remember her as the warm, generous, funny and loving mother and grandmother that she was. We will miss her beyond words, but comforted that she has made it home to be with those she loved.
A family service was held at Roseville District Cemetery under the direction of Cochrane's Chapel of the Roses. Donations in Barbara's memory can be made to either the American Diabetes or s.
