July 18, 1928 – October 14, 2020
Marina Adame, age 92 entered into rest peacefully on October 14th, 2020 surrounded by her family in song. She was born July 18th, 1928 in Torrington, Wyoming to Thomas and Eulalia Perez.
She was a special woman of faith. Her life was a living example of her favorite bible verse Romans 12:12— “ Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Marina’s greatest love was her family. She loved raising her grandchildren and worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for them. Her passion was her love for the lord and serving her local community of Rancho Cordova where she lived for over 50 years. Her home was always open to a warm meal or bible studies. She also loved gardening and evangelizing.
For over 30 years, Marina worked as a youth and children’s ministry leader for Church of God 7th Day. She touched many lives through coordinating church retreats and teaching Sabbath school. She worked with many churches across Northern and Southern California. She will always be known as Hermana Marina or Teacher.
Marina is survived by her husband Henry Adame of 68 years and three children. Her daughter Henrietta Reyes, son Joel Adame, and youngest daughter Eva Adame. Her eight grandchildren; Nathan Adame, Raymond Barrera, Andrea Reyes, Cherie Adame, Marina Reyes, Adamina Adame, Julian Adame, and Malachi Reyes; plus 14 great-grandchildren. All of these she loved and touched deeply.

My name is Faustino Marquez Jr. and I have known Marina for all my life, she is a person of impeccable stature. All the years I've known her, she was so kind and loving to all that knew her and a women of great christian stature. I knew her from our Church of God 7th day for 65 years, and I never saw her upset or angry and she always had a smile. As I sit and write these words it breaks my heart crying that I will miss this beautiful person. I'm a better person for knowing you,may God Bless the Adame family!
