On March 20, 2020, Rosario (Rose) Ramona Gonzalez Fernandez, affectionately known as Charito to many who knew her, died peacefully in her sleep and is resting with the Lord our Father. Charito was born in Cuba on September 5, 1936. She immigrated to the United States from Cuba in 1968 with her family and became a proud US citizen in 1984. She worked and lived in Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando, and spent the last part of her retirement in Michigan. Rose was devout in her faith in God and Jesus Christ her Savior. Rose loved all things associated with nature: flowers, birds, deer, butterflies. She was a writer, painter, a knick knack collector, and a true storyteller.
