Born in Corpus Christi, TX, growing up in Laredo, Rosalia made her way to Milpitas, California along with her family and would later call Manteca home. She retired after 35 years as a nurse for Kaiser Permanente. She loved to sing, dance and spend times outdoors, fishing or beautifying her garden. She enjoyed a good book. She loved spending time with her family and would make them feel special in every way. Up until her last days her love for candy was undeniable and See’s Peanut Brittle was her absolute favorite.
Rosalia will be remembered for her loving nature, for being a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, but mostly for living her life for the care she gave to others. She will be deeply missed.
