Louisa Montoya went to Heaven on August 22, 2020 after a long battle with several illnesses.

She was God Loving Woman, she raised her children on her own and taught us the importance of hard work and education. Mom was funny and caring and had absolutely no filter, you never knew what she was going to say, she said it like it was and was honest and true.

She lived her life with integrity and gave back any way she could. She loved her family and her grandkids and was very proud of all of us. She was the best sister, mom, grandma and friend. She fought long and hard and had 9 lives. She is finally at peace and free to dance and sing.

She is also survived by her children Nancy Rosales Fette and husband Bob. Ted Rosales and wife Geana, George Rosales and wife Chris, Rebecca Rosales and wife DeAnna.
