Rose was born in Brownsville, Texas on July 31, 1940, daughter of Mauro and Margarita M. Guevara. She was a devout Catholic who loved God and her family. Rose served for many years as a guitar player and director of the Spanish choir at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Harlingen, Texas.

She remained faithful to him for the rest of her life and they were happily married for forty-three years. Rose loved her children, grandchildren, and her great-granddaughter. Her hobbies included crocheting, dog-sitting and watching the news. She also loved to cook to show her love for her family and guests.
