Rosa was a wife, mother, and grandmother, who dedicated her life to her family, who she deeply loved. Rosa was the matriarch and center of our very large family. She was the “social glue” that connected so many. Rosa was known for her love, strength, and compassion. Her vibrant spirit and resilient character left a profound impact on everyone she met. Her infectious laughter, warm nature, and words of wisdom will be missed tremendously.  
 
Rosa is survived by her husband, Carlos Alfonso Linares of Salt Lake City, Utah; her three sons: Carlos A. Linares “Calin” of Omaha, Nebraska; Ever Linares and his wife Rosa Rebimbas and their two daughters: Victoria Rosa and Sofia Rosa of Naugatuck, Connecticut; Edgar D.

Rosa is the beloved sister to: Manuel, Roger, Alejandro, Maria Auxiliadora, Maria Eugenia, Martha, and Celia. She is also the beloved sister to Carlos Malespin and Connie Aviles. She is survived by numerous additional relatives, including nieces and nephews whom she loved.
 
Rosa was born in Granada, Nicaragua in 1952 to Abigail Solorzano and Manuel Malespin, both who preceded her in death. Rosa spent her early childhood in Granada with her family and friends enjoying a beautiful coastal life by the ocean and delicious seafood. She never missed an opportunity to live life to the fullest.
 
Rosa attended grammar schools in Granada and then went on to attend the Universidad Autonoma de Nicaragua (UNAN), where she pursued a degree in psychology, demonstrating her enduring curiosity and commitment to understanding and supporting the human spirit.
 
Rosa's deep love for people was evident in her actions. She supported her husband's pursuit of his theology degree at the Universidad de Montemorelos in Montemorelos, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, leaving Nicaragua for the promise of a brighter future for her family. In 1980, the family moved to the U.S. after Carlos Sr. was invited to serve as a pastor for the Seventh-Day Adventist Central Conference in Oakland, California.
 
Rosa made the arduous trip from Mexico to the U.S. with her three young children in tow, demonstrating her courage and dedication. The family experienced life in various regions of California before finally making Utah their permanent residence in 1983 in Rose Park and later in her dream home in West Valley City, Utah.
 
Rosa devoted 19 years of her life as a Quality Inspector at Abbott Laboratories, winning popularity contests and creating lifetime friendships with her co-workers.
 
Rosa Ligia Linares Malespin was an extraordinary woman, whose legacy of sacrifice, love, strength, and humor will continue to resonate in the hearts of all who knew her. She sacrificed and placed her family first in everything. She will forever be remembered and cherished. Descansa querida Madre, esposa, hermana, Tia y amiga.
