Rosa Miranda Torres, born May 3, 1927, in Bastrop, Texas, gained her wings Sunday, December 15, 2019. Rosa was a loving mother to her sons and grandchildren. She was an amazing woman who thought of others before herself. She always saw the good in people and was very honest and never afraid to speak her mind. She loved to sew and would make her own patterns and could make anything she or you could dream up. She also loved plants and to grow plants. If you gave her a piece of a plant, she would have it in full bloom by next season. She loved to travel and go to The Valley. She was always on the move. She was a very hard worker. She worked for NASA for 36 years and had her own cleaning service. She taught her grandchildren her work ethic and her cleaning skills.

All who had the pleasure of meeting Rosa could feel her love, caring and kindness for others.
