ROSADO-REIBER
Janis Helen Rosado-Reiber was taken into the arms of Our Lord on Tuesday, May 27th at the age of 57. A loving wife, mother, and friend, she served her country as an Army Nurse, retiring as a Major in 2003 after 23 years of dedicated service. She was born on October 13, 1956 to Graciliano and Josefina Rosado of Barranquitas, Puerto Rico, where she lived throughout her childhood. Although raised in humble surroundings, Helen and her three older brothers were provided with discipline and encouragement, and all four attained college degrees and had successful professional careers. Helen received her BS Degree in Biology and worked for Bayer before beginning her military career in 1980, when she enlisted in the Army and was trained as an Operating Room Technician. She completed her BS Degree in Nursing in 1986, and was commissioned in the Army Nurse Corps in 1989. Trained as a Perioperative Nurse, she provided quality care in a variety of assignments, including Hawaii, Korea, Germany, and a deployment to Kuwait at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Helen was married to her loving husband David in1993, and God provided them with two precious sons, Gabriel and Thomas. Her family was the focus of her life, although she always made time for her numerous cherished friends. Helen was a woman of deep faith who spent much time in prayer and had great compassion for the weak and suffering. For herself, she asked for no pity during her struggle with cancer, choosing not to burden others with her pain. Her wish was that those who know her would remember only the happy times and understand that she is at peace. Helen is survived by her husband, Lt Col (Ret) David Reiber; sons Gabriel and Thomas, of the home; mother, Josefina Rosado, and brothers Orlando Rosado, Jose Hiram Rosado, and Angel Antonio Rosado, all of Puerto Rico.
