1917 - 2017

Emily passed away peacefully on February 5, in Centennial, Colorado, surrounded by family, where she had been residing for the past 13 years. Emily was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Gardner, and son Mark Gardner.

Emily was born and raised in Ridgeway, PA, one of 12 brothers and sisters, who were raised by their parents who emigrated from outside of Naples at the turn of the Century. Emily (born Carmella Roseto) had an active childhood with interests from basketball at the YWCA to spending time with her siblings. She kept busy working in her parents' grocery store, and as a hairdresser, and at one point owned a bar with one of her brothers. After meeting her husband Robert, they moved to California to raise a family, where she remained active in her children's schools. Like many of her generation, she rarely remained idle; she was an administrator for an assisted living facility well in to her 80's. She even took up painting late in life.

Emily is survived by her son Rob Gardner, his wife Sue, daughter Lisa Martin and her husband Hudson, her grandson Ross Gardner, and granddaughters Sarah Gardner and Taylor Martin. Emily is also survived by a brother, sister, and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service for Emily will be held at a later time. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
