Martha Rosas Carrillo

May 27, 1940 ~ December 5, 2020 (age 80)


Martha Rosas Carrillo, of Gary, Indiana, entered Heaven's Gates on December 5, 2020.  Martha was born on May 27, 1940, in Durango, Mexico to Jose and Guadalupe Rosas.  She is survived by her beloved husband, Andrew, Sr., of 60 years of marriage; three sons, Andrew, Jr., Francisco (Linda); Arturo (Pam) and only daughter, Andrea Guadalupe (Gino) Egipciaco; brother, Jose II (Irene) Rosas; five grandsons, Benjamin James (Anna) Allison; David Michael and Dorian David Rorex; Alexander Jacob (Jessica) Allison, and Frankie (Little Man) Carrillo; one great-granddaughter, Aislin Grace Allison; soon to be great-grandson, Kylo Haven Rorex; sister-in-laws, Mary (Ruben) Ramos; Margarita Carrillo; brother-in-law, Benito (Betty) Carrillo; many nieces and nephews along with innumberable students she loved and taught throughout the years.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Jose and Guadalupe Rosas.  Martha retired from Lake Ridge Adult Education after 36 years of teaching English as a second language (ESL), Adult Basic Education, and GED.  She educated students from various countries throughout the world over the course of her career.  Martha and Andy were members of St. Mary's Catholic Church and active in Bible Study.  Martha loved spending time with her family whom she adored, she was an avid reader and crossword solver.  She was a devoted, affectionate, attentive and warm-hearted woman to her family and everyone she knew. We will miss her hugs, blessings, and the way she would lovingly end each call with "En el nombre del Padre, Hijo, y Espiritu Santo Amen.  Un beso."  A private service will be held for immediate family and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice in honor of Martha Carrillo.
