Deamantina "Tina" Adame

May 6, 1927November 6, 2019

Tina died Wednesday, the 6th of November 2019, at the age of 92. She was born the 6th of May 1927, in Port Arthur, Texas and raised in the Houston area. Tina worked as a secretary in the engineering and banking fields. She was predeceased in 2013 by her husband of 60 years, David Adame. Together they led a very active and eventful life. Tina was blessed and enriched by the many friends she shared her life with. Having grown up during the Great Depression and segregation, Tina often marveled at the many opportunities, friendships and privileges she experienced in her lifetime. Among them was meeting President John F. Kennedy at Houston’s Rice Hotel on the 21st of November 1963, her picture with First Lady Jacqueline appearing in the Houston Post the following day. Tina will always be remembered as a strong, generous individual of integrity with a deep love of family and friends, and an enthusiastic joy of life, and she will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

Tina was preceded in death by her parents Jose and Maria Pena, brothers Jose, Rosendo, and sister Adela Gonzales. She is survived by her four children, sons David and wife Marilynn, Anthony and wife Maria, daughters Andrea Davidson and husband James, Juanita Elsenbrock and husband Don, brother Sam Pena, grandchildren Brandon Adame, Jacqueline Terrel and husband Gabriel, Adriana, Michael, Alexander, Nicolas Adame and wife Robin, Al, Jessica, Christine Griffin and husband Kyle, Alyssa and Randolph Davidson, George and Thomas Elsenbrock, and numerous great grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

Funeral Service will be held at ten o’clock in the morning on Saturday, the 9th of November 2019, in the Jasek Chapel of Geo. H. Lewis & Sons, 1010 Bering Drive in Houston with Fr. Peter Damian Harris, O.P., officiating. Immediately following, friends are invited to greet the family during a reception to be held in the adjacent grand foyer.

Dear David, Anthony, Andrea and Nita, our hearts are heavy on the loss of another earthly angel who was an inspiration to many and loved by all who crossed her paths. Our cherished memories of her, your father and you all go back to our childhood days on so many family and social occasions, that I am saddened I cannot share in today's celebration of her life. My faith assures me that she has joined our her heavenly angel friends as Minnie and Tony and that they all are whole and at peace again and have returned home to their Father. May your wonderful memories bring you comfort during these difficult times. Love to all, Linda and Gary Sagarnaga.

I will never forget the first time I spoke to Mrs.Adame on the phone it was like I had already met her! She was such a beautiful person inside and out and her tender voice just stole my heart! I was honored and privileged to have shared so many great conversations with Mrs.Adame, she is treasured in my heart for ever! My condolences to all her family who she always had beautiful things so say about each and every one of them!
