Carmen Mina-Sangervasi

October 14, 1966 — August 12, 2016

Carmen Bernadette Mina- Sangervasi, 49, passed away on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016 in Solano County from a tragic car collision. Born in San Francisco to Frank and Carmen Mina, she graduated from California High School, and later from Diablo Valley College with an Associate's degree. She became a resident of Davis in 1993, and quickly became involved in the community. Her friends will all tell you that she was always a mother first, but in her capacity to give she also devoted time to her daughter's girl scout troop, became an active participant in the homeschooling community, and in more recent years was an Event Coordinator for the Davis Relay for Life American Cancer Society.

Many things were memorable about Bernadette and to each person she touched they will remember a different piece of her. For some, it will be her uncanny ability to create a delicious meal out of anything, a point made very clear when on a camping trip she made bacon mac and cheese after an incident left her family with too much dried macaroni and bacon ranch dressing. For her children, it would be her love of learning, their fondest memories split between the many museums explored and trips to the local library, after which they would later recount the books they journeyed through to her joy. And for some, it will be the kindness, friendship and love she brought into their lives.

She is survived by her 8 children, Gabrielle, Christianni, Anthony, Joseph, Juliana, Sophia, Michael and Gemma.

Funeral services for Bernadette will be 6:00 PM on Friday, Aug. 19 for a rosary and visitation at Smith Funeral Home. There will be a Mass the following day at 11:00 AM on Saturday, Aug. 20 at St. James Church. Fr. Salvador will proceed over the service.
