January 28, 1965 – October 31, 2020
On October 31, 2020, Adriana Ledesma, loving daughter and sister, passed away in Houston, Texas at the age of 55.
Adriana was born on January 28, 1965 in Houston, TX to Luis Ledesma Gatica and Isabel Mata Arroyo. She received her high school diploma from John H. Reagan High School in 1986.
Adriana, or Nana as we called her, enjoyed road trips and she enjoyed to sing along with songs on the radio. She also enjoyed coloring and watching TV reruns of The Brady Bunch, Little House on the Prairie, Mork & Mindy, and Charmed. She enjoyed playing air hockey, UNO, and rolling a bowling ball once in a while. She was a lover of animals and enjoyed visiting the zoo. She especially loved her cat named Oliver. She enjoyed receiving flowers and stuffed toys. Her favorites were unicorns and Sesame Street characters like Bert & Ernie and Abby Cadabby. Nana would save all the loose change she’d find in our purses to play in loteria games or use in slot machines. Nana’s favorite meal was pepperoni pizza with root beer and cake. Nana enjoyed dancing as well to disco, freestyle and 80’s music. She was a special sister who taught us to give your time and your love to those in need and to be more patient, more compassionate, and more understanding. She taught us to take our time to smell the roses and cherish the small moments that make it all worthwhile. Nana’s love was very deep. She cared for every person she met and left an impression in their lives. Those who were fortunate to cross her path have a story about Nana that will forever live in their memories.
Adriana, was preceded in death by her father, Luis Sr., her mother, Isabel and her older brother Luis Jr. She is survived by her two sisters, Isabel and Lourdes, and several cousins living in Texas - Houston, Dallas, and Brownsville, and in Mexico - Tampico, Matamoros, San Luis Potosi, and Mexico City.

Nana was a very special woman.. She always had a smile and was happy to see us. She had a laugh like no one else I know. Just hearing her laugh made you laugh. She loved people and always enjoyed seeing friends. I always enjoyed watching her listen to music. She loved music. That was something we both had in common. She loved her family and gave them unconditional love . She had a special love for Lourdes who was her caregiver for many years. She was always so happy if we gave her a stuffed animal or coloring book. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Nana , Rest In Peace with your Mom, Dad and Big Brother Luis, Love Dianne Teasdale
