Rose Recio Tamayo

Rose was an amazing artist and crafter, put her perfectionist nature never allowed her to believe fully in her talents. There was no subject she could not address, discuss and make herself an expert in. Best of all, was her faith in her Lord. Rose had a endle

Rose graduated for LHS with honors and attended UT Austin. Her passion was her babies (nieces and nephews). She loved children and enjoyed directing their interests. No matter what she tried, she excelled at it. Rose was the most amazing person and will be greatly missed by many. She loved unconditionally and thought of others before herself.

    RIP Rose. I did not know you that well, but we did have our brief conversations in high school and later in college. I could tell that there was something special about you. I was right.
