They were married for many years until he also went to be with the Lord. Rosa loved to travel. She enjoyed going to Mexico with her friends. She liked to visit her sisters that lived in Mexico. She loved to make homemade tortillas and tamales. She never passed up the opportunity to cook a good meal for her family. Rosa was a very independent woman that would go all over town to get her errands done. Survivors include son Juan Calderon and wife Maria; son Robert Calderon and wife Maria; son Oscar Calderon; son Ruben Calderon and wife Maricela; and daughters Dora Calderon and Enedina Calderon. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Also by her very special friend, Don Polo Longoria, who was always by her side and was considered part of the family. The family would like to extend thanks to HOSA Hospice and Park Plaza staff for providing good services. Nuestra Madre fue un bella, dulce, y a la vez una Leona. Ella fue nuestra guia el ancla nuestra fortaleza en nuestros miedos. Rosa's obituary and memorial guest book may be viewed at RobertMassie.com.
