Priscilla Ann Orosco Rosa, age 54, of Hobbs, NM, passed away February 23, 2022. Preceding her in death were her father, Gregorio Orosco, and brother, Lawrence Orosco. She is survived by her children, Adrianna Mendoza, Summer Rosa-Mullen, Cassandra Rosa, Daniel Diego Rosa, and Samantha Rosa; sons-in-law, Isaac Mendoza and Michael Mullen; future daughter-in-law, Shelly Fernandez; mother, Maria Martinez; brothers, Gabriel Orosco and Gregorio Angel Orosco; sister-in-law, Debbie Orosco; grandchildren, Isaac Daniel Mendoza, Elijha Mendoza, Ava Mendoza, James Mullen, and Luna Mullen; nieces, Amorette Vega, Lindsey Orosco, and Angel-Lynda Morro; and too many dogs and granddogs to name, except maybe L.J.
Family defined her. She ceaselessly encouraged her children and helped them to realize their many successes. She hosted her grandchildren every weekend and poured her heart and spirit into them. Many of her favorite years were spent homemaking. She cooked delicious breakfasts, vacuumed as often as possible (or more), and even dyed and redyed the carpet to keep it looking fresh. We hope that heaven is as clean as her house.
She had several passions, but she especially enjoyed gardening and spending time in the yard. Her children, grandchildren, and numerous dogs enjoyed being outside with her, too. She delighted in celebrating the holidays, replete with home décor, sweets, and handmade gifts. In addition to her many talents, such as singing and playing the saxophone, she had some delightful quirks. She rubbed Manteca on the feet and bellies of her sick babies, and she taught her daughters the necessity of putting on a bit of mascara and lipstick before leaving the house. Her eyelashes were never less than long and beautiful.
Her faith in God was unbreakable. She sought the advice of her Lord and shared it with others. When something was wrong, she spoke the word in abundance. She was fiercely accepting and engaged in bible study, prayer, and church service. She was filled with kindness and compassion. She made friends wherever she went and was a mother to those who needed it. She led by example and instilled her virtues in friends and family. We take comfort knowing she is in a heaven that she helped build in life.
