Rosie Orozco

July 18, 1941 — August 5, 2022

Rose “Rosie” Orozco was a beloved mother, grandmother, and sister during her incredible 81 years of life. She passed away peacefully at home in the early hours of Friday, August 5, 2022, surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor her legacy by living their lives to the fullest. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ysabel and Felicitas Zepeda, husband Pablo L. Orozco, brother Richard Zepeda, son Edward Zepeda, and great-granddaughter Deziaray Zepeda. She is remembered by her sister Eva Soto, daughter Patricia Orozco, sons Paul and Adrian Orozco, eleven grandkids, thirteen great-grandkids, and two great-great-grandkids.

Rosie was born July 18, 1941 in Glendale, Arizona, and was raised in Bakersfield, CA. Due to her parents being migrant workers, they moved around San Joaquin Valley frequently during Rosie’s youth. Even as a young girl, she was always a happy and pleasant person to be around. In 1964, she married Pablo Orozco and they raised their family in Somis, CA. Rosie always valued the importance of her family, and when her children were grown and on their own, she then moved back to Bakersfield to care for her elderly parents until they departed. By this time, Rosie had already become a grandmother and it seemed as though she waited her whole life to be one. Her whole life became caring for her grandchildren. One of her favorite ways of showing her love was through her wonderful cooking. She will always be remembered for her peppered steak, carrot cake, and her own invention, the tamale pie.

One of her favorite past times was drawing for fun and even winning a few drawing contests. She also loved going for walks and enjoying the beauty of nature and spreading the word of Jehovah God. She was obedient to her faith until the end of her life.

She will be deeply missed and always loved by all of her family and friends. To honor her love, we ask that all in attendance of her service, wear a shade of pink. Pink was her favorite color and represents her love and kindness that she showed to everyone she met.
