DeLaRosa webJan. 1949 – Nov. 2015

Elizabeth “Betty” De La Rosa, 66, of Turlock, our beloved mom, sister, and Nana, danced into heaven on November 1, 2015. Betty was born on January 23, 1949 in Texas to Abel and Rosa Longoria, the second youngest of nine brothers and sisters. Betty grew up in Santa Rosa, TX, moved to Patterson, CA in 1972, and settled in Turlock in 2000. She worked as a preschool teacher in Patterson and then as a Paraprofessional for Denair Schools for the past 10 years.

Betty’s passion was to be able to help kids; she was affectionately known as “Miss D” to her students. Betty was full of energy, she loved life, and she constantly reminded us all to be thankful for the things God gave us, and to always view life in the positive. Her hobbies included sewing, dancing, and going shopping at thrift stores.

Betty is preceded in death by her parents Abel and Rosa Longoria, and her brothers Joe Longoria, Juan Longoria, and Abel Longoria, Jr.
Betty is survived by her loving sons Sam De La Rosa and Armando De La Rosa, her only daughter Belinda Putnam (husband Ron), her grandchildren Sarah Putnam, Jacob Putnam, and Antonio De La Rosa, her brothers Pete Longoria, Lee Longoria, and Robert Longoria, and her sisters Mary Barrow and Florence Landry.

Rosary will be held at Allen Mortuary on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015 at 5:00pm. Mass will be held on Monday, Nov. 9, 2015 at 1:00pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Turlock, with burial to follow.

We will always love you, Nana. Tell Jesus “Hey, hey, hey!” for us.
