On August 15, 2022, God called Rosie Diaz Kinzel home to be with Him. She spent 91 wonderful years with us and served God and humanity with her whole heart.
She was born on April 27, 1931, to parents Manuel Diaz and Luciana De La Cruz Diaz. Rosie was the eighth out of the thirteen children born in the home that her father and cousin built in Burbank, California. Her brothers and sisters are Pilo, Pilar, Sebastian, Raymond, Jovita, Martin, Manual, Lupe, Stephanie, Maria, Clara and Frank.
She was married to her late husband Gilbert B. Hernandez for 27 years and had three beautiful children: Lucia, Gilda and Ben Hernandez.
Rosie married Bill Kinzel on September 4, 1982. They were going to be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary next month. She loved her sacred heart and was always praying for everyone. Rosie and Bill attended Saint Bellarmine mass every Sunday, she was a devoted catholic and said her rosary every day. She loved her family and friends to the fullest unconditionally.
She enjoyed taking care of her nine grandchildren, Lisa, Windy, Daniel, David, Jessica, Sierra, Jacob, Cody and Lillie, as well as her twelve great grandchildren.
Rosie was loved by everyone. She opened her doors to many, she was special and had a heart of gold, well maybe lavender because everyone knew that was her favorite color.
She will forever be missed.
