The Lord called Rose Escobar home on February 24, 2017 after battling pancreatic cancer. Rose Escobar was born July 10, 1955 in Alice, Texas.
She was the daughter of Gaspar Leal and Maria Coronado. Rose Escobar was a beloved wife of Jose Escobar, loving mother of late son Jose, Maritza, Miguel, Veronica, Josephine, beloved grandmother of 12, beloved great-grandmother, cherished sister, dear aunt, and loving mother-in-law.
Rose Escobar was strong and independent but at the same time very loving, thoughtful, and compassionate. She was very selfless and took care of both her children, grandchildren, as well as her neighbors, as if they were her own family. She was an active member in the community, always helping others, with her beautiful golden heart. Rosie was an amazing cook. She always said her main ingredient for every dish was love. Her hobby was gardening. She truly had a green thumb. You could really see her creativeness, and perfection once you enter the gardens. She loved it so much, her husband would call it her second home because she would spend so many hours in the garden. She had hands like an angel, there was no plant that died under her care. Rose really gave true meaning to her name, unlike any other Rose, she bloomed all year round- the flower of love.
