June 29, 1925 – March 6, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Rosa Elena Arevalo, who left us on March 6th, 2018. Born on June 29th, 1925, Rosa was a self-taught reader, adventurer, a caring friend and above all an amazing mother and grandmother. She arrived in America in the mid sixties and thanks to her excellent work ethic and determination, managed to settle her entire family in a new country. Her contributions as matriarch of the Arevalo family are unparalleled and we give thanks for the life she lived, the love she spread and the sacrifices she made for the benefit of her family and its unity.
We celebrate her legacy, wisdom, kindness and humility, her undying faith in God and the many things she taught those around her. She will always be remembered as a loving and protective mother, a caring and generous grandmother and a joyful and wise great grandmother. She is survived by her sons Roberto, Fabio and Sergio Arevalo, as well as their respective wives Leyla, Gladys and Nerida Arevalo; her grandchildren Adriana Milloy, Mark and Jessica Gerlich and Sergio, Andrea and Alejandra Arevalo as well as her great grandchildren Dylan, Matthew, Aaron and Alexa. We ask you to join us at Kennedy-Roth Funeral Home on March 17th, 2018 from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM to pay our last respects. A Mass at Saint Sebastian’s Roman Catholic Church in Woodside, New York will follow the memorial service.
