On Friday, February 8, 2019, Carmella Marie Matsko went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was surrounded by her loving family as she passed away after a long illness.
Carmella was born in 1932 in Morann, PA. She was raised in Cleveland, OH where she married her high-school sweetheart, John Matsko. In 1962, John accepted a job offer at Sandia National Laboratories.
As a result, Carmella and her family moved to Albuquerque where they raised their son and three daughters. Carmella was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be remembered for her humor, wit, and creativity.
She is survived by her husband, John; her son, W. John; and her daughters, Marjorie Morris (John), Julie Vick (Jonathan), and Christine Berg (Phillip); eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
