Rosario G. Coronado


Rosario G. Coronado entered rest on Nov. 17, 2020. She was born on Jan. 1, 1952, in Fort Stockton, Texas.

She is survived by sons John Robert Coronado, and wife, Delicia, of Fort Stockton and Victor Gomez Coronado, and wife, Jasmine, of Fort Stockton; brother Jimmy Gomez, and wife, Pricilla, of Midland; sisters Elodia Valeriano, Celia Zermeno, Josie Franco, Irma Padilla, Aurora Gonzalez, and Linda Granado; grandchildren Janessa Coronado, Peter Coronado, Mariana Coronado, Briella Coronado, and Venelope Coronado. Preceding her in death were her parents, Margarito Gomez and Jususita Valesquez; husband Roberto Coronado; brothers Jose Luis Gomez, Fernando Gomez, and Reynaldo Gomez Rosie “Chayo”

Coronado entered rest  after a two-year fight against cancer. She was born on Jan. 1, 1952 in Fort Stockton, Texas, to Margarito and Jesusita Gomez. She married Roberto Coronado in September of 1977 at the age of 25 but was widowed by the age of 46.

Strong willed and independent, she was able to raise two young boys, one 16-years-old, the other 9-years-old, who love her very much, into two hard working, respectable young men. Rosie was an extremely hard worker, working in the caregiving profession for 50 years, caring for both children and adults. Her strong work ethic in combination with her selfless, kindhearted, and loving nature, made her very well-known within the community.

Rosie’s characteristic of always putting others needs before her own extended well beyond her family and friends, often touching the lives of those she cared for. Rosie lived a life of hardship, but always stayed strong and true in her faith. When she wasn’t working, which wasn’t very often, she loved spending time with family, especially her five grandchildren who were the joy of her life.

Rosie was a truly amazing person, the type of person this world needs more of, which makes Rosie’s death the worlds loss, and heavens gain.
