Rosa was born on May 4, 1932, in Dachau, Germany to Alois and Maria Augustin. Rosa was born into a large German family, and she was one of seven daughters. She grew up and attended school in Germany. Rosa would meet her future husband, Orvel Brewer while he was stationed in Germany. They fell in love, and she would move to the United States, and they later married on October 31, 1953, in Mobeetie. They shared almost 63 years and had three wonderful children before he preceded her in death in 2016.


Rosa loved all children and always created a connection with them. She would use that passion for children when she worked for the Pampa Independent School District for 21 years as a special education aide. She was a longtime and faithful member of the Central Baptist Church of Pampa where she served on the Benevolence Committee and taught Sunday school for many years as well. Rosa was a devout Christian woman who served her Lord in any capacity she could, and she passed those Christian values onto all her family. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. 


Rosa was preceded in death by her parents; a husband; a son, Rodney Brewer; and by three sisters.


Her survivors include her daughter, Margaret Gilmore and husband Richard of Mountainburg, Arkansas; a son, AJ Brewer and wife Lindy of Washington, Oklahoma; eight grandchildren; 22 greatgrandchildren; one great great-grandchild; and three sisters, Elizabeth Binner, Frieda Scholze, and Anna Kahl; and by other extended family members.
