Obituary for Candida Velez Rosa

Candida Velez-Rosa, 99 years old, passed away on January 19, 2019 with family by her side in Houston, Texas. Candida is survived by her sister, Maria Eugenia Torres; son, Pedro Rosa; and granddaughter, Jaclyn Rosa.

Originally from San German, Puerto Rico, Candida moved to the United States in 1957 at the age of 38. Candida married Pedro Rosa Sr. on November 29, 1958 and they were married 45 years. She was a dedicated wife and mother and worked for the same company for 40 years until she retired and returned to Puerto Rico in 2005 to be closer to her sisters. Candida had a beautiful voice. She loved to sing and dance at all the family celebrations.

Due to the devastation of Hurricane Maria, she lost her home in Puerto Rico and had to move to Houston in October, 2017.

Today we mourn the death and loss of a loved one. A loved one who lived to just shy of 100! A loved one whose 100th birthday is today!

“Happy birthday Candida!”
