Henrietta De La Rosa

March 7, 1947 — June 15, 2024

Mrs. De La Rosa, 77, passed away on June 15, 2024, at home surrounded by family. She was a feisty spirit, loving Mother and Grandmother, a devoted Wife, and a member of Our Lady of Grace. Henrietta enjoyed life and never was still, you could catch her watching her grandkids sporting events, dancing, being with family and her grandchildren, camping, listening to oldies, and shopping, oh did she enjoy her jewelry and watching football; she was an Artesia Bulldog fan and a die-hard 49ers fan. She was strong, outspoken yet still compassionate, funny, and loving. She will be dearly missed.

Henrietta met her husband of 57 wonderful years in high school when they crossed paths and some would call it love at first sight because once Manuel laid eyes on her, he knew he was going to create the best life with her, they were inseparable; where you saw one the other was following right beside. The two had spent every single day of their 57 years together, happily and filled with many beautiful memories.

Born on March 7, 1947, to Enrique and Dominga Ortega in Artesia, New Mexico.

Survived by her doting husband, Manuel De La Rosa, her loving children, Rickey and wife Julie, Nick and wife Mary Jane, Brenda, Manuel Jr and wife Rachel, Eric and partner Adrian, Jeremy and wife Samantha, and Rene. 27 Grandchildren and 41 Great Grandchildren; One Brother, Lewis Ortega, four sisters, Flora Ortega, Alice Ortega, Frances Lara, and Margarita Ortega, six God Children and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
