PRICE - Our loving mother, grandmother and sister, Rose Salazar Flores Jacquez, age 89, passed away Feb. 23, 2012 at Castleview Hospital.

She was born May 22, 1922 in Coyote, NM to Merced and Eleana Archuleta Salazar.

Rose Married Rosario "Ross" Flores, Oct. 26, 1942 in Lumberton, NM and on July 31, 1960, at 38 years of age she was left a widow raising three teenagers.

A couple of her earliest accomplishments was learning to drive a vehicle and receiving her GED. On May 19, 1973, she married Isidor P. Jacquez in Price and they were blessed with 37 years of constant companionship before his passing on Nov. 28, 2010.
