April 13, 1962 - December 18, 2021
Dolores Sosa (Leyva) passed away on December 18, 2021, in Roswell, NM. Dolores was born in Roswell to Ramona Leyva and Fermin Mendoza, and she was raised by her grandmother Lucia, whom she loved dearly. On April 13, 1962, Dolores married Phillip Sosa. They were happily married for 59 years and four months shy of their 60th anniversary. From the time they dated until now, they had been together for over 60 years. They raised their three children; this included her selfless attitude of putting her family first. Later, Dolores welcomed her grandchildren one after another. She poured everything she had to spoil and love on them. Dolores wasn’t only dearly loved by her family and extended family. So many others she encountered also loved Dolores in her lifetime due to her faith. Dolores was a dedicated member of Jehovah’s Witness who faithfully served Jehovah God for over 44 years. She spoke to everyone from young to old about the Bible. Dolores spoke to us often about the best years of her life of serving Him and felt it was a privilege to fulfill His will. Even up to her recent years, with everything she endured, her faith never faltered. She believed what the Bible promises of hope of the resurrection. Dolores was preceded in death by her grandmother Lucia Garcia, mother Ramona Leyva, and father, Fermin Mendoza. Dolores is survived by her husband, Phillip B. Sosa; sons: Larry Sosa (Belynda), Fermin Sosa (Yvonne); daughter, Lori Hancock (Greg); brother, Raymond Flores (Lucila); sisters: Susan Perez and Lucy Sunrise; as well as seven grandchild, eight nieces, six nephews, and their families. The family will hold a private burial ceremony. Please take a moment to share a kind thought or memory with Dolores’ family at www.andersonbethany.com.
