Rosalie Carrillo Arganda was born a proud member of the Juaneno Band of Mission Indians- Acjacheman Nation in Orange, California, on September 06, 1933. She was the second of eight children born to Augustine and Frances Carrillo. She attended school in Seal Beach, California. At a very young age she met the love of her life Manuel Arganda, and they became sweethearts. In 1950, they married and were soon blessed with seven children: Jim, Tim, David, Bobby, Patricia, Billy and Kathleen. Rosalie had a very strong faith with the Lord, her faith along with the fellowship, and support of her life-long friend Nadine Arganda is what kept her family strong. She loved to throw parties, the house, and her beautiful yard was always full of laughter, love, and fellowship. Rosalie would spend hours in the sun planting or tending to the yard on Old Elsinore Rd. She would wear a hat and always had beautiful rosy cheeks from being in the sun; she loved gardening. She also enjoyed collecting bells, as well as anything with ladybugs. Rosalie was very loving and dedicated to her caring husband, their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and anyone that needed someone to talk to. Many would describe her as a social butterfly that loved to talk and pray with anyone she met. Rosalie had a very big heart and shared it with everyone. During the Gulf War Rosalie volunteered her time at March Air Force Base helping in what she could, counseling those deploying to war or returning home from war. Rosalie received awards from the Commanding General thanking her for her time and dedication to the War-Fighters. Rosalie will be sorely missed by everyone whose life she touched especially her family that loved her very much.
