Our beautiful Rose Herrera has returned to heaven for a wonderful reunion with her son and family on Monday August 26, 2019. Rose was a wonderful wife to Roger for over 50 years, and an amazing mother and grandmother. Rose was born on June 8th, 1934 to Benjamin and Rosita Martinez in Amalia NM. Rose was the fourth of seven siblings. As a child, she was a cheerful and diligent student who enjoyed her school activities. Rose graduated with honors and was the only female (out of 7 students) in the Amalia class of 1953. Rose met Roger, her love, while he was serving in the US Navy. After Roger completed his service, they were married and moved to Magna Utah and later, in 1965, settled in Tooele Utah. It is in Tooele that they raised their 7 children; Rebecca, Theresa (Neal Shertz), Raymond (deceased), Laura (Matt Trujillo), Linda (Julio Garcia), Lucie, and DeeAnn (Dzung Tran). She is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren who adored her. Rose was a dedicated to her family. She made beautiful quilts for her children and grandchildren. She expressed her love to her family by preparing the most amazing dishes. Her enchiladas made New Mexican style were a special treat for all those lucky enough to be sitting at the table! A devout member of St. Marguerites Catholic Church, Rose served many years in the Legion of Mary. She and Roger were prayer leaders on the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy every Friday for many years. Funeral services will be held at St Margarite’s Catholic Church on Saturday, August, 31, 2019 at 1:00. Funeral followed by burial and reception. Vigil and rosary service will be Friday, August 30 6-8 pm, also at St. Margarite’s Catholic Church. We thank the staff at Willow Springs. The professionalism, dedication and personal care they gave Rose, will forever be appreciated. We would also like to thank Father Ken and the members of St. Marguerites for their support during this time. A note to my wife Rose. “Thank you honey for sharing your life with mine, for being by my side in good times, the bad times and the hard times. I will love you forever more.
