Passed away peacefully April 12, 2021. Rose was compassionate, loving, kind, funny, generous, strong, self-motivated, and independent. Rose graduated from St. Joseph's Business School, paying for her own education while working as a live-in nanny. She was introduced to Puerto Rico by her best friend and fell in love with the island and its culture. Rose worked in purchasing most of her career, retiring as a Purchasing Manager and was well liked by her coworkers and vendors. She raised her three children on her own and then helped raise her grandchildren. Family was everything to Rose. She had a very large extended family and loved all of her step-children as if they were her own. She was very devoted to her church and had strong faith in God. She was calmed with the knowledge that she would see the Lord upon her passing. Rose will be greatly missed by all of those who love her.
Rose is predeceased by her parents, William and Rose Strassner; husband, Angel Correa-Jimenez; siblings Joyce, William, Joanne, and Francis. She is survived by her children, Erina (Jim) Beck, Migdalia (Doug) Caswell, Daniel L. Burgos; grandchildren, Evan, James, Daniel, Justin, Hannah, Katelyn, Olivia, Greyson and Natalie; sister, Janice Smith; several nieces, nephews and dear friends.
