Rosa Maria Oliva De Santiago passed away on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at the age of 86, following a 7-year battle with dementia. Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Victor Oliva, daughter, Elizabeth Oliva - Jara (son-in-law Richard), siblings; Maria de Jesus, Raquel, Martha and Tere. She is preceded in death by her brother Jose Angel and sister-in-law Lupe, brothers Jose Luis and Carlos, and niece Rocio. Rosa Maria was born in Jerez, Zacatecas, Mexico to Jesus Maria De Santiago and Maria De Los Angeles Saldivar. Rosa Maria lived in Jerez, Zacatecas, Mexico and then joined her brother Jose Angel when he and his family immigrated to Oxnard in the early 1960's. Rosa Maria met her life partner Victor Oliva in Oxnard and married him in December, 1967. Rosa Maria's priority was always her role as a mother and a housewife but she also made time to listen to her close family members and friends providing moral support to anyone who sought her out; she was a confidant to her brother Jose Angel and her sister-in-law Lupe. She shared many special times with the Herrera family (Lupe, Olivia, Esther and Yolanda) as well as with her friend Leonor. Rosa Maria provided her daughter with great encouragement to continue her education and one of her most significant moments in life was her daughter's graduation day at California State University, Northridge. Rosa Maria missed her siblings dearly; when she had the opportunity to travel to Mexico City she thoroughly enjoyed every moment; she sat for hours chatting away and it was never too long and never enough time. She will be tremendously missed by her husband, daughter, family and friends.

With in my pain and sorrow I am deeply grateful for who I am. I am a product of my family and this time in history where so much doubt and uncertainty can have such a profound influence in the direction of my life. Thank God I know who I am and who raised me, who’s loving hands changed my diapers, fed me and encouraged me to do the right thing, and love me unconditionally so I can pass this on to those that come after me.
I know who I am.
Thank you “mi tia Rosa “ for loving me
Love is the only thing that is not temporary.

Víctor, Liz and Rick, recuerdo con cariño visitándolos en Oxnard, un lugar muy especial en mi memoria, aquella casa con un árbol de manzanas en el frente, una casa confortable y siempre lista para recibirnos, siempre amable y cariñosa. Tía Rosa siempre con una sonrisa y lista para platicar. Thank you very much for everything you are! Thank you , Tia Rosa!.

Rosa was such a loving person. I’ve known her more than 25 years and every time I saw her, she always gave me a big hug. I don’t speak Spanish but we communicated using hand gestures and enjoyed each other. I’m so proud how she took care of Liz and brought up such a beautiful daughter. Every mother can learn from Rosa how to raise a child. I will surely miss her hug and smile, but I know she is in peace in heaven. Sunny

Gracias Tía, gracias por ser tan amable, tan agradable siempre con una linda sonrisa, aunque la distancia nos separó siempre te quise mucho.
Tú corazón aún vive en el mío por qué no importa donde te encuentres, yo siempre te llevaré conmigo.
Mi padre siempre me comentaba que te quería mucho, ahora ya podrás estar con él.

Liz, yo sé que no hay palabras que reconforten tu tristeza, tan solo cierra los ojos y deja que los hermosos recuerdos lleguen a tu mente y corazon, entonces sabrás que siempre estará contigo.

Tía, aunque pocas veces nos vimos, siempre me sentí querido por ti, te agradezco que hayas sido tan cariñosa conmigo y que cada vez que nos veíamos me dedicaras tiempo para preguntarme por mi y mis actividades.
Confío en que allá donde hoy estés --cielo-- te sientas tranquila, y con mucha paz. Fuiste una persona amable y bondadosa, así que no dudo te hayan recibido de lo mejor por allá.
Si llegaras a ver a mi abuela, dile que jamás la voy a olvidar y que diario que cierro mis ojos, aparece en mis recuerdos y a mi padre, también dile que me he dedicado a cuidar a mi madre y que no tiene de qué preocuparse no podría estar en mejores manos y desde luego, algún día nos volveremos a ver. Besos tia, siempre fuiste una de mis preferidas.
