Carmen (Castillo) Cody passed away at Mercy Medical Center in Sacramento on April 21, 2011, after a brief illness. She was 60 years old.

At her bedside was her husband of 30 years, James Cody, her daughter, Melissa Cody Bell, and her son, Kellen Cody, as well as Anna Olszewski and her son-in-law, Jason Bell.

She is also survived by her brother, Ricardo Castillo; her sisters-in-law Ilene Castillo and Dawna Dutra; nieces Valerie Castillo Prom, Amy Castillo and Sarah Rohan; nephews Joseph Castillo and Larry Gregory; and several cousins in Santiago, Chile.

Carmen is preceded in death by her parents, Audrey Bridwell Castillo and Homero Castillo.

Carmen graduated from UC Davis in 1972, and enjoyed a brief singing career in Spain as the lead singer for the bands Zapata and Carnivales. In 1976 she began her 33-year career with the State of California Department of Social Services, Child Support Division. She received many awards throughout her career for her integrity, dedication and commitment in serving the children and families of California. In 2009, she retired as a Staff Service Manager III, overseeing the statewide CCSAS program liaison office, with plans to pursue her passions of family, the West Sacramento softball community and traveling.

Carmen was a kind and gentle person with a keen wit and sense of humor. She spent many hours lovingly caring for her family as well as her extensive network of friends. A visit to the Cody household was always a guarantee for an excellent meal and heartfelt camaraderie. Carmen will be missed by all who knew her and especially by her entire family, who loved her so very much. Sic transit Gloria mundi.

A rosary will be said for Carmen at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, at the Wiscombe Funeral Home, 116 D. St. in Davis. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 5, at St. James Church, 1275 B. St. in Davis. Please send memorials to the American Diabetes Association.
