Rose “Rosa Maria Ibarra” Chauncey, of Valencia, passed away on 13 November 2021, in Valencia. She was fondly known as "Ita", short for Abuelita, by children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and those closest to her.

Rose Marie was born 29 October 1933 in Torreon, Coahuila, a small farming town in Mexico, to Felipe and Maria de Jesus Zuniga Ibarra. She emigrated to Texas through Monterrey in the area known as Nuevo Leon, Mexico at a young age. She worked as a seamstress for many years. It was there she met the love of her life, Henry E Chauncey Jr, and they married on 29 April 1967 in Houston, Texas. Shortly after, they moved to Santa Monica/Culver City. After a few years they found themselves headed back to Texas but it would not last, and after several years they followed their hearts and made home in a little area known as the Santa Clarita Valley in 1979. They would soon follow dreams and open a small blueprinting business for a growing city, A-1 Blueprint. Henry would soon pass on much too early. Rose, determined to keep their dreams alive, would carry on the torch for many years. Well-known in SCV construction and building circles, she was involved in several business networking groups such as Soroptimist and SCV Chamber of Commerce.

Rose Marie is preceded in death by her late husband Henry Chauncey Jr. and her parents Felipe and Maria de Jesus Ibarra.

Rose Marie is survived by children Henry III and partner Shannon, Hollis and Shawna, Ruby and Robin Riley; grandchildren Adessa, Brianna, Jessie, Killian, Henry IV, Isabella, Hollis II "Buddy", Robby, Rose; great-grandchildren Jaiden and Aspen; and her little pup Winx - "Winky Winky" as she would call her. She has one brother, Felipe de Jesus Ibarra, previous residence in Mexico and current location unknown.

Pallbearers will be Henry, Hollis, Ruby, Killian, Adessa, Henry Jr, Buddy, and Robin.
