Rosa Elia Sabala, 69, of Corpus Christi, TX passed away on Sunday October 21, 2018. She was born on February 5, 1949 to David and Lupe Balderas. She was married to Marcos Sabala Jr. on May 25, 1969 in Lockney, TX. Rosa worked for many years in the insurance and hospital industry until she retired in 2011 to devote her time to her family. She was a loving, generous, and beautiful soul to her family and friends. She selflessly helped raise her two grandchildren JR and Desiree and her precious great-grandson Marcus. Her unconditional love for all her grandchildren are what gave her the strength and courage to fight her battle with cancer. She treasured her moments with her family doing what she loved; cooking, camping, fishing and going to the beach. She leaves us with memories of her sweet smile, sense of humor and her generosity. She is preceded in death by her parents David and Lupe Balderas and brother David Balderas Jr. She is survived by her husband Marcos Sabala Jr. Her children Irene Flores (Vicente), Marcus Sabala (Erin), Lori Sabala Jasso (Nyto), and Richard Sabala (Nichole). 12 grandchildren Vicente Flores Jr., Alexandra Flores, Sean Sabala, Madeline Sabala, Lucio "JR" Martinez (Vanessa), Desiree Martinez, Michael Sabala, Kevin Sabala, Kayla Sabala, Eliana Reyes, Danielle Gonzalez, and Nicholas Gonzalez and 4 Great-grandchildren: Makayla Martinez, Marcus Anthony Rodriguez, Matthew Ramon and Caydence Gonzalez. Her siblings Blanca Rodriguez, Ninfa Ochoa (Ubaldo), Yolanda Gonzales (Noe), Albert Balderas (Nelda), Mario Balderas(Olga) and numerous nieces and nephews.
