Rosa was a devoted wife and mother. Her deep faith in Christ was passed down to her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed watching her novelas and spent hours crocheting intricate, beautiful items.

Rosa enjoyed taking day trips down to Fredericksburg and could spend hours walking in and out of the unique shops on Main St.
