Rosalba Diaz was born in Tiquisate, Escuintla, Guatemala on July 9, 1965 and passed away in the afternoon of  October 1, 2021 in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.  She was 56 years old.

Born and raised in Guatemala, Rosalba immigrated to the United States in the 1990’s in order to provide for her four young daughters in Guatemala.  She met Hugo Diaz in Chicago, Illinois, through their same employer.  They dated, married, and had their youngest daughter, Linda, in 1999.  Both Rosalba and Hugo moved to Walterboro, South Carolina and lived there for 22 years.  She was an active member of St. Anthony Catholic Church where she received the Sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation, Communion, and Confirmation. Rosalba was also a devoted employee of Pioneer Boats.

She will be remembered as always being happy and outgoing, our family member who was the life of the party, who loved to sing, dance, and have a good time. She was kind, loving, and had a big heart. She was a humble, selfless, and generous individual who would help anyone in need. She was accepting of everyone, was strong-willed, and was always determined to persevere in life. She always fought hard, even until the end of her life. She touched many lives by the way she was: a positive, loving, and free-spirited individual.
