I stumbled upon two poems by my sister, Professor Sharon Barba (Rising Tides) and was surprised that a comment was made to the mystery of the life and death of Rose at a relatively young age (49). The mystery is more that so few people seemed to have any interest at all. University of El Paso Texas honored her posthumously (Women in History) a couple years after her death and if not for Professor Lois Marchino, that would have never happened.
