Rosalie Alice Martinez passed away April 1, 2014 at the age of 59 in Boise, Idaho.

Rosalie was born September 16, 1954 to loving parents Paul and Vickie Martinez in Nyssa, Oregon. She attended school in Fruitland, Idaho.

Rosalie had a gypsy spirit and easily made life-long friendships everywhere she went. She loved to dance, sing, laugh and, especially, make others laugh. She will be remembered for her great sense of humor, beautiful smile, giving nature and willingness to help anyone in need. 

Rosalie is survived by her two children: Sandy Santa Cruz (David) and David "Tony" Hall; her four grandchildren who were precious to her: Layla (12), Jonah (10), Alexander (5), and Sylas (3); and five siblings: Pauline Carbajal, Robert Martinez, Paul Martinez Jr., Victor Martinez, and Veronica Martinez Blodgett (Mike).

She was preceded in death by her father, Paul Martinez, and brother, Ambrose "Amos" Gurule.

A memorial service will be held at 10am Saturday, April 5th at Aclesa Funeral Home 8209 Fairview Avenue Boise, Idaho 83704.
