Rosalie A. "Rosie" Cabrera Obituary
Rosalie "Rosie" A. Cabrera, 48, of Poolesville, MD passed away peacefully after her 17 month battle with lung cancer on August 11, 2013. Rosie was born in Frederick, MD on October 7, 1964 and was the oldest of three children. Rosie spent the majority of her childhood growing up in Poolesville, MD where she met and married her high school sweetheart, Jose Cabrera.

Rosie always wanted a large family so she and her husband spent the next few years raising five children. Once her kids were in school Rosie began the start of her career in Sales as an Account Executive in the Mortgage Banking industry. During her tenure at CitiMortgage she was often recognized with numerous achievement awards for her outstanding performance as a top sales agent. She won trips to Hawaii, Scottsdale, AZ, Florida and California. Rosie spent the last two years working at Eagle bank where she developed a very close relationship with her coworkers who were extremely supportive during her battle with cancer.

Family was the most important thing in her life. She was a devoted mother who supported her kids in anything they participated in. She was at every basketball, football and cheerleading event. One of the proudest moments in her life was the day she became a grandmother. She committed her time to spend any chance she could with creating memories with her two grandchildren. Rosie loved to spend her free time gardening, going to yard sales and flea markets, playing bingo at the local firehouse and spending the summer weekends playing volleyball at her family's weekly BBQ. She was an upbeat, positive, loving woman who will be deeply missed every day.

She is survived by her husband Jose Cabrera; five children Jose Cabrera, Jr. of Frederick, MD, Jenny Cabrera also of Frederick, MD, Tabitha Cabrera Toema of Arlington, VA, J.J. Cabrera of Germantown, MD, Christopher Cabrera of Germantown, MD; daughter of Connie Jane Roberts of Poolesville, MD; sister of Lisa Seward and George Seward and grandmother of Jose Cabrera, III and Kylie Cabrera Durieu.
