Rosie Helen Edeal

May 15, 1947 – December 31, 2020 

Rosie Helen Edeal, 73, entered into the kingdom of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, December 31, 2020 following a short illness. She was born May 15, 1947 in Turlock, CA to Maura Rojas and the late Juan Campos. She was a full-time mother and for many years employed part-time as a childcare provider.   For the last decade she has been a doting “Grammee” to her 10 grandchildren.

Rosie was a devoted member of the Church of the Resurrection. She loved spending time with her family, cooking and sharing meals, caring for her grandchildren, attending the events of her large family and traveling.  Rosie’s passion was caring for others, she treasured the time she spent working with family at dance events and in the Board Room at the Stanislaus County Fair.

She is survived by her mother Maura Rojas, children David (Sharon), Jason (Sarah), Jarrod (Angela), Jordache (Loree) and Jon (Lee Ann), along with 10 grandchildren. She is also survived by siblings Richard and Louie Campos, Larry Naranjo, Nancy Vasquez and Sandra Fagundes. She also leaves behind a large family she dearly loved. Rosie is preceded in death by her beloved husband Wally Edeal and siblings Johnny Campos and Sandra Naranjo.

A memorial celebration of Rosie’s life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to donate to your favorite charity in memory of their mother.

    I count myself lucky to have been amongst the children watched over by Rosie. Some of my earliest memories are being in her home. I am so grateful I was able to spend my younger years with her, and for the memories I have from those times. It is difficult to imagine a world without her smiles and laughter. I loved Rosie very much, and I will miss her always.

    Rosie, you will be truly missed. I will always remember the good times we had at your house, with birthday parties and baby showers, and the kids swimming in your pool. The times we went to the kids school events. Watching them sing, and in play’s.
    I’m just happy knowing that you’re with your husband Wally, I know how much you missed him.
    You will always be in my heart.

    My sincere condolences to the Edeal/Campos family. I had a chance to speak with Rosie following the passing of my Mom, (Michi Sakaguchi) this past year. We reminisced about all the great times our families had together. After all these years, she continued to exude her kind and supportive spirit that you encountered every time you spent time with her. She was so proud of all her sons and their families. It was a blessing to have had the opportunity to have had her as part of our lives, with such great memories. Although she will be missed by so many, her spirit will remain among all of us, whose lives she touched.

    My thoughts & prayers are with her family.
