Priscilla Ann Roche Obituary
Priscilla Ann Bunsen Roche was born on February 14, 1936 to Fredrick and Mary Bunsen in El Paso, TX. She was the 4th of 5 children. She graduated from Loretto Girls High School in El Paso. She then studied medicine and nursing at University of Minnesota and eventually USC. Mom worked for American Airlines as an early adult for 12 years. During this time she met her spouse, Louis N. Roche, who was stationed at Fort Bliss Army Base, in El Paso. After a few years, they married in 1958 and then moved to Burbank, California, to start their new life together. Her passion for flowers and plants were always on beautiful display in her backyard gardens. She was a fabulous cook, enjoyed sewing and travelling with her husband. After her kids became teenagers, she went to work at Providence St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, as a brain technician in the neurology department. After 56 years of marriage, the love of her life, Louis N. Roche Sr. passed away last year. She looks forward to being reunited again with him, her parents, her brothers Fred & Elliot, and many other friends and family that have gone before her. She leaves behind her brother Rodney, sister Marietta, her three children, Louis, Chris and Jennifer, our spouses Kelly and Marie, and her four awesome grandchildren Emily, Patrick, Ella and Carolina that she lovingly called "munchkins" and "monkey doodles." Her unconditional love and support, her wisdom and humor will not be forgotten. Mom was a parishioner of St. Charles Borromeo, for over 50 years. Until then, our perpetual Valentine will be dearly missed.
