Rosey was born September 25, 1970 in Corpus Christi to Miguel Vasquez and Stella Smith Vasquez. With her father being in the military, Rosey grew up in many places. She graduated from Glen Falls High School in Glen Falls, New York. Rosey married Thomas “Tommy” King on May 29, 2008 in Coleman. She was the manager at the Sonic in Coleman for many years and helped her father install satellite dishes for dish network. Rosey had a loving heart and wonderful personality that made you become instant friends with her. She had a passion for helping others as evident through her work for the American Breast Cancer Society and her support for the Humane Society. Rosey loved all animals, but she had a special place in her heart for her dogs. Two of her favorite past times was watching her television programs and bargain shopping. Rosey’s love and spirit will be deeply missed, but she would want us to continue on by showing love and kindness to one another.
