Rosa Rodriguez, age 72, of Alice, Texas, passed away Sunday, July 25, 2021 in Norman, Oklahoma. She was born February 3, 1949 in El Dorado, Texas to Enrique and Cruz (Garza) Rodriguez. As the family moved frequently due to job opportunities, the couple found their forever home in Alice, Texas. As a child, Rosa was spontaneous and accepted any challenge handed to her. She traveled and loved to make sudden adventures as she went from Florida to Ohio and back to Texas. After settling back in Alice, Texas she taught her children the importance of life around family. She moved to Lawton in 2000. She became a caregiver to multiple families and she especially loved her babies as she became a nursery worker at her church. Rosa adopted all her babies as her grandchildren and loved them just as such. She enjoyed time with family and friends and she loved cooking and feeding everyone and anyone.
