Rose A. Perez


Rose Adela Perez 91, passed away in her Ballston Spa home on Friday February 8th, 2019. Rose was born in Brooklyn, New York, along with her sister Carmen and her two brothers Raymond and Jean who were all lovingly raised by their mother Sophia. Rose was always a pillar of strength making any sacrifices necessary for her family even at the early age of 13 where she forged her birth certificate so she could take a full time job to help her mother support her siblings. Rose later married the love of her life in Brooklyn and gave birth to their beloved daughter Linda.

Later Rose went on to school to earn her cosmetology license and successfully ran her own salon and always continued to help support her mother and brothers over the years while her beloved husband was out to sea as a Merchant Seaman.

Rose always enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and later on in life with her great grandchildren and was cherished by every single one of them. She loved her senior shopping trips to Walmart and the hours she spent with her daughter Linda each day watching their favorite shows and laughing together.

Rose is predeceased by her husband of 39 years Victor and her daughter Sophia.

Rose is survived by her daughter Linda Ortiz, her granddaughters Venus Heflin and Brenda Hawks, her great grandchildren Anthony Pharo, Kassandra Heflin, Jenae Heflin, Blake Heflin, Ryen Hawks and Miranda Hawks.

Linda and family, my sincere condolences for the loss of Nana. She was a wonderful lady full of wit and spunk and that's what I will miss most about her. I'm sure she will keep Brucie and Ronnie in line but she will also party hardy with them. Love to all of you and many thanks to your daughters and grandchildren for opening their arms and heart to me and treating me like family. Patti
