Vanessa Buentello, age 53, of Houston, Texas, was born December 4, 1967 and passed away on Monday, July 19, 2021.

We welcomed her into the Buentello Family twenty years ago when she and Daniel Buentello met and fell in love. They surprised us when we were told they eloped in Las Vegas. She wore a red leather pant suit to commemorate the occasion. We celebrated this happy union at a reception, showering them with gifts and lots of love.

Years later when they started their family, Vanessa became the doting and loving mother we all knew and loved. She was filled with pride at her sons’ milestones and achievements. Joshua and Nathaniel were the joys in her life. She proudly boasted about their accomplishments and delightfully shared photos of them together. Her spirit will be forever carried by her legacy of the pure love she had for her boys. Vanessa loved traveling and the adventures she and Danny shared on many cruises they took. She enjoyed these times and talked about the next cruise they would take, often.

Vanessa was Vibrant, Animated, Nice, Enthusiastic, Sweet, Spontaneous, and Affectionate. She had a beautiful smile and a kind heart. She took the time to express kind words to those she encountered. She truly cared and loved spending time with family and friends. We will remember Vanessa, not only for her beautiful outer appearance, but for her inner beauty.

We will remember Vanessa’s genuine laugh. It would start as a little giggle that would turn into this great joyful laughter. From rooms away, you could always tell it was Vanessa who was laughing. This joyful laughter is how some will remember Vanessa along with fond memories and treasured moments.

Vanessa leaves us with a message of hope. A message of… "Let’s open our eyes. Let’s open our ears. Let’s open our hearts to our loved ones. Let us lift each other up. Let us lighten the load for one another when it’s too much to carry." She will be the inspiration to be mindful, to reach out to our loved ones, to let them know they matter; they are loved.

Vanessa is loved and she will be forever missed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Memorial Service will be held Monday, August 2, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Crespo Funeral Home- Broadway, 4138 Broadway St., Houston, TX 77087.

Dear Danny, Josh and Nate—

Kristy and I are so very sorry for your loss. Vanessa was a part of our family and we have nothing but fond and fun memories of her. Probably because when we were together over the past 20 years it was always either at Halloween, Christmas and anniversary parties or volunteering and yes even donating blood together. You are part of our family and the Adcetera family and we are here to support you in any way. Our fond Vanessa memoires are forever imprinted on our hearts.

God Bless—

Danny, boys and family,

My heart breaks for your loss and our prayers will be with you all during this time and always. Danny, you and Vanessa have given me such unconditional, non-judgmental friendship and support over our many years of knowing each other. Vanessa shared Gods love and blessings through her joy, laughter and selflessness. She always showed up with a big smile and was eager to make new memories! I will cherish the time we all spent together.

Danny -
You and Vanessa have been a part of the Adcetera Family for such a long, long time. We will always treasure our memories of time spent together. The two of you are legendary costumers at the company Halloween parties and we always loved that you guys would come a little early to the Christmas parties so we could share a little extra time before the crowd. We have loved you both dearly. Our hearts and prayers are with you and the boys and we will miss Vanessa always.
With faith and hope, Kristy
