Miriam Therese Dela Rosa entered eternal rest on Thursday, January 20, 2022 after an extended illness. Ms. Dela Rosa was a born in Manila, Philippines to the Venusto and Paula Dela Rosa and was a lifelong devote Roman Catholic. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Nursing at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila and began her career as a nurse. Miriam subsequently accepted a sponsorship to come to Northern New Jersey where she worked as a NICU Nurse. After 30 years of service she moved to Boiling Springs, SC and served as a Traveling Nurse until her retirement due to illness.
Miriam was a consistent honor student during her childhood days and developed a passion in sketching, painting, and drawing. A quiet and reserved person but stands up for her rights, strong willed but a loving daughter, sister, and friend. Her ability to extend help when needed touched many lives with her generosity, her loving heart and passion for life.
She is survived by her sisters Carrie Sundian (Robert) of Boiling Springs SC, Cathy Hernandez (Moises) of Monroeville PA, and Maria Gracia, Fatima Oliva (Joel) and Vivien Cristina of Manila, Philippines. Her brothers Peter Raymond and Venusto De la Rosa Jr. (Susan) of the Philippines also.
