Rosa Maria Santana entered into eternal rest at her daughter’s home in Ocala on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at the age of 79. Señora Rosa was a native of Santo Domingo, D.R. and a resident of Ocala for over 20 years. Before retiring, Rosa worked as a watchmaker and a taxi driver on the island of St. Croix, USVI. Rosa was known for her love of music and dancing and her deep love for her family and God. Throughout her life, Rosa acted as both role model and mother figure to several children and was directly involved in the care of several of her grandchildren.

She is survived by her loving husband, Hubencio Santana, her children, Carlos Santana, Janet Shrouf, Joanna Santana Ratcliff, and Judith Santana, along with their spouses, as well as her 11 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Rosa will be remembered fondly by her two living siblings, Lucas Martinez and Ana Mercedes Martinez, as well as by the many members of her family and community whose lives she touched with her love and compassion.
