Rosa worked as a factory worker in Queens NY until she moved to Boston Massachusetts. She briefly worked for Sears Roebuck and then transitioned to a career in education.

She was also a member of The Mount Pleasant Holiness Church where she served as an usher, a member of the Adult Choir, and she formed a young choir (The Sunshine Band).
Rosa loved to bake. Her family always looked forward to her famous biscuits (especially her cheese biscuits), sweet potato pies, and her son’s favorite pineapple cake. Rosa loved being around people whether you were family or not because she loved the company. She loved music and she loved to dance. Whether she was cooking, cleaning, or at a family gathering any chance she had she would be the first on the dance floor. The other thing she loved to do was her puzzle books. She would do her puzzle books from the time she woke up until whatever time she decided to go to bed. One of the easiest Christmas gifts to buy her were lots and lots of puzzle books.
