Rosalita Diaz was born March 3, 1944, in Mertzon, Texas, to her parents, Arnulfo C. Diaz and Maria Holguin Diaz. On February 2, 1960, Rosa married Ernesto “Ernie” Calsoncin in Brownfield, Texas. Rosalita was very active in the Catholic Church throughout her entire life. Before they moved to Breckenridge, she was featured in the Outstanding Young Women of America in 1971 as “Mother of the Year, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church.” In 1974, she and Ernie founded Ernie’s Spanish Kitchen in Breckenridge. She taught Ernie how to cook and the original recipes were all her own, including the famous Ernie’s Queso. She had been a member of the Elks Lodge, the Woman’s Forum and the Chamber of Commerce and was a pillar of the community. She enjoyed bowling, collecting coins and even going to the casino with Ernie. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Rosalita was preceded in death by her parents, Arnulfo and Maria Diaz; her husband, Ernesto Calsoncin; and four brothers, Junior Diaz, Jerry Diaz, Raymond Diaz and Henry Diaz.

She is survived by her five children, Rudy Calsoncin and wife Gloria, Elda Calsoncin, Dennis Calsoncin, Ronnie Calsoncin and wife Christy, and Elsa Calsoncin; three sisters, Izabel Hernandez, Delia Ramirez, and Janie Rios; ten grandchildren; and fifteen great-grandchildren.
