Rosalie Ann (Rose) Jojola Rodriguez
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved sister Rose. She was called by the Lord on June 26th, 2023. Rose was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
Rose was born to Jesus & Lillie Rodriguez July 1st, 1970. After graduating high school, Rose pursued a career in education; she became a teacher for YDI. She was passionate and devoted to her work and was loved by her students and their parents.
Rose and Dale were married for many years. Dale helped raise her two young children, and Rose was also our father's caretaker until his passing in 2015. Rose and Dad were one of a kind.
Rose was strong-willed and stubborn at times but had an ENORMOUS HEART. She also had a great sense of humor. She will be remembered for all the heart she shared with her family and friends. She truly loved each of them. She touched our hearts in ways that words can never fully express. As we mourned her departure from this world, we take comfort in knowing that her spirit will forever guide and protect us.
