Rosa retired from Great Northern Corporation after 25 years as a stitcher machine operator. There she broke many records and was recognized for superior work performance.
Rosa was a die hard Green Bay Packer fan. She enjoyed scratching-off bingo lottery tickets. She truly enjoyed cooking for her family. One of her greatest passions was her flower garden, which to many was the pride of the neighborhood.
She was very creative and made sure that her house was decorated for every season and holiday.
More than anything in the world she cherished her family and the time spent together.
Rosa’s favorite quote while placing her hands on heart “mis hijos e nietos son mi vida”.
