Yolanda Carma Rossi
A time to remember and celebrate the life of Yolanda Carma Rossi will be held at Ertel Memorial Chapel from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Yolanda Carma Rossi (Bevilockway) was born June 14, 1938, in Ogden, Utah, to John Rossi and Carma Jean Allen.
She lived an amazing life until Sept. 27, 2013, when lung cancer escorted her to the place of absolute peace and extravagant love. All knew her as a kind, open-hearted, warm, receiving spirit, who was attentive to others more than herself. Friendships and family were most important to her. Known to have a keen sense of humor about humanity, she despised telemarketers, and loved many a good book.
Educated at Western Montana College of Education, the University of Utah and UC Berkeley, she enlisted into the Peace Corps which journeyed her to Ethiopia for a time. Employed at Macy’s Department Store, North Salt Lake Service Drug, Salt Lake County, Montezuma RE-1 District, 26 years for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, and retiring at the Cortez Public Library.
She is survived by her brother, Johnny Wynn Rossi; sister, Constance O’Connor; son, Mathew Rossi; granddaughter, Hali Rossi; as well as numerous friends and family in California, Utah, and Italy.
