Basilia Rojas


Basilia Rojas
November 27, 1932 - October 28, 2013

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – Basilia Rojas died on Oct. 28, 2013. She was 80 years old.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Primitivo Rojas; three sons, Roberto (Yuki), Raul (Renee), and Tivo (Ann); and five grandchildren.

Basilia was completely dedicated to loving her family, creating community, and giving to friends and strangers.

There is no stranger to Basilia, after several minutes she would become a friend.

She will always be remembered for her optimism, her faith in God and her love of all people. She was a timeless community builder and always took the side of justice for others.

She was the greatest of cooks, and had legendary sopitos. She crocheted endlessly, and was an artist of life. She is also a wondrous story teller and talker.

We will miss her jokes, stories, and hot spicy and amazing chili.

Visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at Chapel of the Lakes Mortuary, 1625 N. High St., Lakeport.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, at St. Peter's Catholic Church, 4085 Main St. in Kelseyville.
