Bagatti, Gerald Jerry - Sacramento  
Gerald "Jerry" Bagatti, beloved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew and cousin, passed away September 19 from cardiac complications. Memorial service will be September 30 at Sacramento Valley Cemetery at 10:30 am. Burial is at sea. Born in Iowa, he moved with his parents and elder brother to join his Italian grandparents and uncle in California at the age of six. His younger brother was born a few years later. He graduated from Sacramento High School and attended Consumnes River College. Jerry worked hard his entire life beginning with his first job driving an ice cream truck as a teenager. He joined the Navy serving on board the USS Sylvania and USS Stoddard as a signalman during the Vietnam war era. After being honorably discharged, he became a dispatcher for many years with the Sacramento Police Dept. He changed course and joined Federal Express eventually becoming a station manager where he organized the sensitive return of personal effects from the victims of United Flight 232 in Sioux City, Iowa. He was extremely proud of the station crew during this tragic episode. With his typical outside the Fed Ex box thinking, this tiny station developed into Federal Express' largest single stop account through their efforts when no one believed Gateway 2000 computers were more than a passing phase. He and his family returned to California where he eventually retired. His favorite times were spent with his children and grandchildren, the family horses, fishing, playing cards, cooking and feeding birds with his faithful dog always by his side. He loved a good road trip in his camper, on his motorcycle or the family Volvo. He was preceded in death by his parents. The family would like to thank Doctors Swislocki and Martin with Mather VA Medical Center. His smile will be sadly missed.

Clark, Cecilia H. - Sacramento  
Mom was born in Brooklyn NY on Sept 9, 1922 and slipped away from us a week after celebrating her 94th birthday on Sept 16, 2016. Mom's compassion for others were a result of the hardships that she, her sister Elizabeth and their widowed mother met and also by the kindness of those who brought joy into their lives. Cecilia married William P. Clark in 1948 and they survived raising 6 children with most of their sanity intact. Pop's 1976 retirement took them from Richmond Hill, NY to Citrus Heights, CA where Mom enjoyed gardening, crafts, travels with Pop, crossword puzzles and most definitely her expanding family: daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mom had an unquestioning faith and prayerful life. She was an active member of the Catholic Ladies Relief Society and passed on the kindnesses she received throughout her life. Friends and family are welcome to attend the Rosary on Thursday Sept 29 at 7 pm and Mass on Friday, Sept 30 at 10 am. The location for both is Holy Family Catholic Church at 7817 Old Auburn Road, Citrus Hts. The family will bring Mom to join Pop at Calvary Cemetery at a later time. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Catholic Ladies Relief Society at Holy Family. Mom's favorite quote was "Life is uncertain, eat dessert first."
