Mariah LaChelle Rosales, 31, of Shelbyville, passed away Saturday, April 30, 2022 at MHP Medical Center.
She was born November 13, 1990 in Beech Grove to Raymond Cox and Christina (Perry) Montgomery.
Mariah graduated from Shelbyville High School in 2009. She attended IU Bloomington, Coastal Carolina Community College, and Ivy Tech Community College in Columbus where she graduated with a degree in Human Services.
Mariah was a vibrant soul. She radiated love and laughter and left a light wherever she went. She had a heart bigger than this world could hold and the mark she made will ripple out for all of eternity. Growing up she enjoyed playing volleyball and going camping. As she got older, she developed a love for cooking and traveling with her family and friends. She enjoyed listening to music and being outdoors. She went on to work for AYS for 10 years and established the program for Shelbyville Central Schools as well as several schools in Central Indiana. She had a heart for the children she serviced and it brought her great joy to interact with them as they grew beyond AYS. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family, especially her three beautiful children, Kobe, Kyleiha, and Kailen Rosales.
She married Carlos Rosales on January 2, 2010 and he survives.
