Rosa “Chita” Rodriguez passed away peacefully on January 9, 2018 at the age of 91. 

She was born August 30, 1926 in Hills, Texas to Andres and Maria Gonzales. 

She married Thomas Rodriguez August 2, 1946. 

While raising five children, she enrolled in night classes to obtain her high school diploma, and in 1965, she graduated in the top 10 percent of her class. 

She enjoyed gardening, crocheting and sewing. The one thing that brought her the greatest joy was being with her family. 

She is survived by her loving husband of 71 years, Thomas Rodriguez, and five children: Gloria Rodriguez, Luis Rodriguez, Robert and wife Cindy Rodriguez, Eva Rodriguez, and Teresa Rodriguez; her 8 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. 

She is also survived by her siblings Jose Gonzales, Santos Gonzales, Rosario Maldonado, Concepcion Villarreal, and Reyes Gonzales. 

She was preceded in death by her parents Andres Gonzales and Maria (Gonzalez) Gonzales, her siblings Antonio Gonzales, Zacharias Gonzales, Domingo Gonzales, Enedina Lopez, Militon Gonzales, Liborio Gonzales, Angel Gonzales, Alberto “Sonny” Gonzales, and daughter-in-law Ellen (Cameron) Rodriguez. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Rosa’s name to the American Cancer Society.
