Beloved mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away the morning of July 7, 2009, at her daughter's home in Grand Junction after a struggle with cancer.
Francisca was born in Aguas Calientes, Mexico. Later, she established a home in Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas, where she lived with her sister.
Francisca lived in Craig for 5 years with her children, as well.
She liked to knit and garden. She loved music, dancing, singing and being with family. Francisca enjoyed celebrating life, love and family as often as possible.
She moved back to the Craig/Grand Junction area in September 2008, where she remained until her passing.
During her time here, she got to meet and know all of her great-grandchildren, and celebrate her 87th birthday.
Francisca is preceded in death by her father, Severiano Rodriguez; her mother, Eusebia Rodriguez-Rocha; and her son, Alfredo Rodriguez.
She is survived by her son, Roberto Rodriguez; daughter Veronica DiGregorio; sister Gabriela Rodriguez; grandchildren Sergio Duarte, Bobby Rodriguez, Sylvia Duarte and Gloria Rodriguez; and great-grandchildren Alejandro Duarte, Anthony Duarte, Sergio Duarte, Jr., and Evanie O. Allen.
She was very much loved, and will be greatly missed.
The Rodriguez family would like to thank Moffat Family Clinic, Grant Mortuary and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for all the prayers, food, love and support they all gave.
