Hobaica, Rose
Rose Marie Hobaica of Phoenix passed away on Tuesday, September 28, 2015. Rose, a native Arizonan, was born at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix on January 2, to Arab and Melia Hobaica. Rose was the youngest of six and lived all her life in Phoenix. She went to Monroe Elementary School and graduated from Phoenix Union High School. She is survived by her brother Fred Hobaica, his wife, Pat and Rose's sister Margaret Coury. Rose had no children of her own; however, she is survived by 23 nieces and nephews who loved her and were blessed to have her in their lives. "Aunt Rose" as she was known, always made it a point to be present at holiday events, baptisms, first communions, graduations and weddings. She spent most of her career at Imperial Lithographics as an executive assistant, retiring after more than 30 years. She was an active member of Ss. Simon & Jude Cathedral and served as a greeter every Sunday. She was very involved with the homeowners association where she lived and was a member of a professional women's sorority. Rose loved to bowl, play tennis, golf and sing. She loved sporty cars and was a stylish dresser who was known for her wonderful shoes. Her funeral Mass will be at Ss. Simon & Jude Cathedral, 6351 North 27th Ave. in Phoenix, on Friday, October 2, at 11 a.m. A lunch in celebration of her life will be held in the church hall following the Mass. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society Conference at Ss. Simon & Jude Cathedral. All who knew Rose will miss her funny sense of humor and smile.
