Later, Rosa entered the nursing profession working as a Certified Nurse’s Aide at the Pampa Nursing Center and Texas Panhandle Community Center. Rosa would meet Jesus Gomez and they married on October 26, 2013, in Pampa.
Rosa was an outgoing woman who loved to dance, talk, and was usually the life of the party. She was a selfless woman who gave as much as she could to those in need and who never met a stranger. She will be remembered as fiercely loyal woman who loved her children, grandchildren, and all her family, and she will be greatly missed by all.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Lou Lopez; and a brother, Robert Rivera.
