Mother: Arcadia Durán

Rosa Emma Durán was born December 28, 1914 in Zacatecoluca, La Paz, El Salvador.

Rosa was the second daughter of Arcadia Durán. Her older sister was Eufemia (Fema) Durán.

She was a strong-willed child that contributed to her household at a young age by selling in local markets.

Rosa grew up in an all-women household, helping each other throughout their lives.

She sold grains in the markets and eventually opened her "tiendita" (small store) inside the family garage.
