Studies and the Women Together Ministry. She loved singing in the church
choir, singing at retirement homes, walking her dogs in the park, sewing,
cooking, gardening, attending musicals and watching fireworks displays at
the Elk Grove Park. Rosa loved animals! She took care of needy animals
locally, and gave generously to various animal charities across the globe.
She will be missed by her friends, family and precious cat, Weedy.
