Deputy killed in crash 'touched lives all over' Friends and family of Madison County Sheriff's Deputy Rosemary Vela said the 24-year-old mother touched the lives of every person she met and was never without a smile.

"She was really amazing," Britany Dorado said. "She had that kind of personality that would draw you in."

Dorado said she met Vela almost three years ago, when the two worked in Crockett County, and Vela was one of her best friends.

Late Monday night, Vela was killed in a single-car crash on U.S. Highway 70 when she was called as back-up for another deputy in the Huntersville area. Madison County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tom Mapes said sometime between 10:30 and 11 p.m., Vela's car went off the road.

"While in heavy rain, Deputy Vela's vehicle left the road, hit a tree and came to rest in a creek," Sheriff John Mehr said. "She was pronounced dead at the scene. She is survived by her 5-year-old son." Two deputies found her patrol car in the creek after tracking her cellphone.

Vela's son's aunt, Rachael Wilkes, said Vela was dedicated to her son, Jayden.

"She was a hardworking, dedicated mother," Wilkes said. "Her number one priority was always Jayden's safety and happiness."

Wilkes said her husband's brother is Jayden's father.

"My husband, Freddie, said she (Rosemary) was the essence of what it means to be a mother," Wilkes said.

Dorado said Vela was always busy with school and work, but made time to help Jayden with his kindergarten tests and homework. Dorado said Vela's son came home with a perfect score on a test his mom helped him work toward, and was excited to show her his grade....
