Amelia Davila Rocha, 86 of Fisher, MN, passed away peacefully Monday night, January 22, 2018, at the McIntosh Senior Living Nursing Home in McIntosh, MN with family by her side.
Amelia was born July 10, 1930 to Raymond and Maria Davila in San Antonio, TX. She would spend all of her early life in San Antonio where she would also meet the love of her life, her husband, Arturo. Later, as a couple, they would move to Fisher, MN, in 1954. Amelia had many different jobs throughout her life, her first being at Ryan Potato Co. in East Grand Forks, MN. She would also work alongside her husband and family for Harold and Bob Ross farms in the Fisher, MN area. Amelia also would spend many years working at the Villa St. Vincent in Crookston, MN as well as the Mount St. Benedict in Crookston, MN where she worked as a CNA, and formed very special relationships with all she worked with. Amelia was an amazing cook, where her favorite meals to cook were those she would prepare for her family when they would all come home and visit. She had a love for music, dancing, and spending her summers out in her yard planting flowers. Amelia was a member of both the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Crookston, MN and St. Francis Catholic Church in Fisher, MN. Amelia was a very kindhearted loving mother and will be missed dearly by all her family and friends.
