Adela will remembered for tenacity for life. She had a dedication to her family beyond life itself. She exemplified that in her life choices in serving others as a spouse, parent, family member and friend. Some of her favorite things to do were shopping, enjoying gatherings with family & friends, and eating at Butter Churn and Luby's. She loved to cook for her family, she especially loved it when her daughter Melissa would cook a special soup just for her and her Daughter in Law Monica would prepare Fideo & Chicken, a favorite dish she enjoyed. Her two most favorite past times were to just go for a ride with John & Monica to Rockport and traverse various estate sales and to go shopping with Melissa & Jaime and just have an overall fun filled day with each of her children. She will be missed by those who have grown to know and love her but most especially by her family who will miss her presence and her beautiful smile.
