Her children and grandchildren were her whole world. Rosa was a wonderful cook that always enjoyed putting a special meal on the table. Her favorite place to be was at her home with all of her family around the table sharing a meal together. She was the ultimate homemaker and mother whom gave her love and care tirelessly. She loved all as if they were family, if you walked through the door and sat her table you were treated as family. Rosa will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

    I have only awesome memories of Rosalinda from her middle school years thru high school. She was always smiling & friendly, always sharing & caring for everyone around her.It was a blessing to have met her & to have felt the love, compassion & understanding that she had for all. She once told me that there was some gossip about me & gave me advice as to how I could respond back favorably!. So much wisdom for one so young.Condolances & love to all those fortunate enough to have been her family. "The gentle are blessed, they will receive what GOD has promised!"
