Josephine Rocha Fuentes, 95, passed into the arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 25, 2020. Josephine was born on September 18, 1924 in Nixon, Texas; and lived in Corpus Christi as an adult. She was known for being a strong woman, who persevered and conquered many challenges throughout her life. Josephine was a smart tenacious lady. As a young woman, she was a hard worker who enjoyed various jobs. Being a "go-getter", she attended Beauty School earning her cosmetology license. Josephine worked as a beautician and an Avon Representative. During her tenure as an Avon Representative, she earned her way into the Avon President's Club-- a high honor for top sellers. During her later years, she worked as a "grandparent" for children with disabilities at the Corpus Christi State School. Most of all, she enjoyed being a beautician and an Avon Representative. Josephine had a good sense of humor and enjoyed the whimsical side of life. She will be deeply missed by her loving family until they are reunited in God's Kingdom.
Preceded in death are her parents, Guadalupe and Leonardo Rocha; husband, Antonio Fuentes; Baby Daughter; son, Antonio Fuentes, Jr.; brothers, Leonardo Rocha, Jr. and Paul Rocha; and sisters, Eva Hernández and Helen Gomez.

Fabela, Ronny Fuentes, Marcos Fuentes, Philip Fuentes, Adrián Fuentes, Christina Fuentes, Stephen Fuentes, Brian Fuentes, Amber L.
