Denise Ortega-Roseli

Denise died Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at St. Marys Hospital in Rochester. She was 47.

She was born June 2, 1971, in Downey, California, the daughter of Ruben and Irene (Frias) Ortega.

Denise had lived in California until the last four years, when she and Joseph Roseli moved their family to live in Albert Lea.

A hard and diligent worker, Denise had been employed with Cargill Foods, Walmart and most recently MarketPlace Foods.

She was a passionate and loving mom, life partner, daughter, sister, friend and homemaker — always giving of herself for her family and others.

She enjoyed dancing, singing, projects and spending time at Clear Lake.

Denise was one you could always depend on to get things done. She gave with all of her heart and never asked anything in return.

Denise is survived by Joseph Roseli; children Rebecca, Sonny and Isabella Ortega, Joseph Roseli Jr. and Joana (Ryan) Francoeur; grandson, Tristan; parents Ruben and Irene Orega of Rancho Cucamonga, California; sisters Valerie Ortega and children Jordyn and Nikolas, and Natalie J. (Victor) Ortiz and children Anthony, Vic Jr., Julie, Delilah and Leo; and sister-in-law, Corinna (Daniel) Rodriquez, and children Juliana, Daniel Jr. and Laura.

Denise was deeply loved and will be forever missed and remembered.
