Her fiance's sister, Nikki Stowers, told NPR that Rocha was struck in the thigh by a bullet and subsequently died at the hospital. "She was that type of mom who just loved holding her kids," Stowers said. "It's so unfair that she's had her life taken away.”
Heather Warino Alvarado
Heather Warino Alvarado made the three-hour drive from her southern Utah home to Las Vegas to get away for the weekend and take her daughter to a country music festival.
Her daughter was unharmed in the Sunday night shooting, but the 35-year-old Warino Alvarado was one of at least 59 people killed when a gunman opened fire at the concert-goers.

Friends and family received confirmation she had died Monday night from Las Vegas police, according to a news release Tuesday from the Cedar City Fire Department, where her husband was a firefighter.
Warino Alvarado ran an in-home day care center in Cedar City, Utah, and was a devoted wife and mother of three children who was always willing to help others, said longtime friend Megan Jackson Gadd.
"She has made huge impacts on those around her with even the smallest gestures," Jackson Gadd said in a Facebook messenger conversation. "A person like her will never be replaced or forgotten and will be missed dearly every day for the rest of our lives."
Denise Cohen and Derrick "Bo" Taylor
As Jeff Rees thinks about his mom, Denise Cohen, one thing keeps repeating in his head: Her laugh.
"When she would take me to the movies as a kid, I was just waiting to hear her laugh because it would just crack me up," Rees said.
Cohen, 58, and her boyfriend Derrick "Bo" Taylor, 56, both died at the Las Vegas concert. Taylor was a lieutenant in the California Department of Correction and Rehabilitation. He worked as a commander at the Ventura Conservation Camp, which houses inmates that help California fight wildfires.

Rees met Taylor last year, when he travelled to California to visit his mother. The two had dated on and off for several years.
Cohen was a woman who lived life to the fullest and made everyone around her feel their best, Rees said.
"I feel sorry for all of the people in the world who never got a chance to meet her," he said.
Andrea Castilla was so happy to be in Las Vegas celebrating her 28th birthday. She was holding hands with her sister while watching the band when they heard yells to "duck!" and the sound of gunshots, her aunt, Marina Parker, wrote on a GoFundMe memorial page to raise money for the funeral expenses.

Her boyfriend, sister and friend tried carrying her to safety while dodging bullets and managed to get her over a fence and to a nearby highway, where they flagged down a passing driver, who took them to a hospital in the back of his truck.
After she was admitted, they were told hours later that she had died, Parker wrote, but the hospital system listed her still as alive because she was confused with another patient.
"It has been tragic for our family with her dad still hoping it was a mistake and she's still alive," Parker wrote.
After the family provided her ID and photos she was confirmed to be among the dead.
"Our entire family is heartbroken," Parker wrote on her Facebook page.
