Rosa Felix, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend, passed away peacefully on August 26, 2013 at Marlora Post-acute Rehab Center in Long Beach, California. Proud of her Mexican heritage, Rosa was born to Santiago Felix and Juanita Avila in San Antonio de los Felix, a suburb of Jerez, Zacatecas, Mexico, on August 30, 1929.
Rosa devoted all of her love to her family, friends, and the many people in her life. When her children were grown, Rosa started a day-care in her home, helping raise many children through the years, which kept her young at heart. Her passions were crocheting, knitting, sewing, cooking, watching her novellas, and talking on the phone countless hours with her best friends, Herlinda, Tia Rita and Froylan.
Rosa is survived by her six children, Maria-Lina, Teresa, Ben, Joe, Juana and David as well as 14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
