Rosa was an extremely hard worker who didn’t miss a day of work at Walmart for over 20 years, not even for a doctor’s appointment. She was a people person, always happy, and greeted everyone with a smile on her face. Rosa enjoyed reading and loved her Coca-Cola. She was an amazing mother to her two children and always there to give her honest advice, whether you wanted to hear it or not. Rosa was a wonderful person and will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
A funeral service for Rosa will be held at Clayton Funeral Home, 5530 W. Broadway, Pearland, Texas 77581, on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at 1:00 pm, with Deacon Steve Griesmyer officiating.
