Rosie Lugo Casillas Young

  Rosie Lugo Casillas Young transitioned peacefully on Sept. 4, 2017 in Mesa, Arizona at the age of 73. 

  Rosie is survived by her daughter Francine M. Chavez of Chino Hills, California, son Robert “Eric” Gonzalez of Whittier, California, son Russell R. Young of Mesa, Arizona; seven grandchildren Savannah Rose Chavez, Emily Marie Chavez, Selaya R. Young, Eric R. Young, Keian R. Young, Russell R. Young IV, Rosemarie “Rosie” Lynn Young.  Her two brothers Charles “Carlos” Casillas and Rudy Casillas both of San Antonio, Texas. 

She is preceded by death by her parents Manuel Bojorquez Casillas and Frances Lugo Macias and brother Alvin “Alvino” Casillas.

  Rosie had a beautiful personality and enjoyed life.  She loved everyone and adored her children and grandchildren.  With a heart of gold, she always put everyone’s needs ahead of her own regardless of who they were and always gave more than she had and never asked for anything in return.  She was a true gem.  She loved painting, singing, dancing, shopping and RED lipstick.

  A Memorial Mass will be held Saturday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Superior. A luncheon will follow the Mass at St. Mary’s Center.
