On Monday, October 17, 2022, Rosabelia H. Sanchez, left this world to begin her journey to the heavenly kingdom that is promised to all who believe. Rosabelia was born May 1, 1932, in Brownsville, Texas and grew to be a woman of strong faith who instilled in her children and family the love of Christ and the power of prayer. Blessed with a sharp wit and a keen sense of humor, she was a joy to be around and share stories about back in the day and the miracles she had experienced in her life. Rosabelia drew her strength from the Lord and that strength enabled her to be a wife, a mother of four including a set of twins, a grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend. She lived a full life and remained thankful to the end for all the blessings bestowed upon her and her family that she so cherished.
