On August 4, 1940, Rosalee was born to Hilario and Marian Sanchez in Carrizozo, New Mexico.

Rosalee was a very unique person who had her own style, and there will never be another one like her. When she was happy, she was very pleased, but when she was mad, boy, you better step away, and she would defend anyone that needed it. Anyone who knows Rosalee knows that you had a friend for life. She gave us a lifetime full of stories from when she was a child to. Rosalee loved to dance and listen to music. She made the best tortillas and chili. If you did not have a place to stay, her house was open to you. We will miss you, and you will forever be in our hearts.
