Rosa Christina Dominguez Vargas Obituary

Rosa Christina Dominguez Vargas went home to be with her Lord on Saturday, July 5, 2014, in El Paso, Texas.

Rosa, a blessing to all her family, was born on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1955 to Ruth and Fernando Dominguez in Taos.
A graduate from Highlands University, she taught math in Wagonmound and Santa Rosa for four years. Then she became a second grade teacher at McCurdy School in Santa Cruz. She moved to Alamogordo in 1987 and continued teaching second grade at Holloman Primary until 2005. She always said you could spot a second grader a mile away!

Rosa was preceded in death by both of her parents, Ruth and Fernando Dominguez.

She is survived by her husband of almost 18 years, Jose S. Vargas; her son Jose Enrique Vargas; sisters Maria and husband Cipriano Chavez, Laura and husband Michael Wolfswinkel, Rebecca Leeson, Yolanda and husband Eugene Morales, and eleven nieces and nephews to whom she was very special as she took part in raising and babysitting them all.
She is also survived by 18 grand- nieces and nephews to whom she has been an awesome tía. Survivors also include countless tías, tíos and primos as well as the extended Vargas family. She has been a blessing to all.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 19 at First Presbyterian Church in Alamogordo.

The Vargas family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.
