Rosanna had an outgoing personality and made friends easily. She made numerous friends over her liflifetimee time and remained in touch with them up until her untimely passing.

For a period of time Rossana was an activist in and around Albuquerque working to promote voting rights of Native Americans.

The program accepted used bicycles and refurbished them then donated or sold them to underprivileged people and the youth in the Albuquerque area. Rosanna loved her job and got a great deal of joy by giving back to the community she lived in.

Rosanna’s friends and family are heart broken. Rosanna’s spirit will live on until we meet her again.
